The New York Times has dedicated the entire front page of its Sunday newspapers to the victims of the coronavirus pandemic, and it is powerful. The Times lists the names, ages, occupations and hometowns of some of the victims.
The Times writes:
“Numbers alone cannot possibly measure the impact of the coronavirus on America, whether it is the number of patients treated, jobs interrupted or lives cut short. As the country nears the grim milestone of 100,000 deaths attributed to the virus, The New York Times scoured obituaries and death notices of the victims. The one thousand people represented here reflect just one percent of the toll. None were mere numbers.“
