The coronavirus pandemic reached a grim milestone Monday as the number of known deaths in U.S. due to Covid-19 reached 500,000. The number of American deaths is the most in the world and comes a year after much of the country was just starting to hear about a deadly respiratory disease in Wuhan, China. By late January last year, reports of the virus’s spread began to make global headlines, soon cruise ships were being quarantined in ports, as uncertainty grew. The first known case of the virus in the U.S. dates back to Feb. 6 of last year, in southern California. Over the next three-and-half months, 100,000 Americans would die, as millions more would stay home.
