Official US Coronavirus Death Toll Now Over 100,000

AllSides Summary

The official United States death toll from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic surpassed 100,000 on Wednesday. The milestone incited a wave of media coverage, reactions and reflections on the extent of the pandemic in the U.S. over the past four months. Many reports compared the death toll to that of other historical disasters and armed conflicts. Some left-rated coverage framed the milestone as a blow to President Donald Trump, who's accused of downplaying the virus and purportedly leaving the nation unprepared. Some right-rated coverage looked more at specifics of the death toll, such as the hardest-hit communities and various supposed policy failures that led to otherwise preventable deaths.
