Monday night Joe Biden will hold a candlelight ceremony at sunset as the US is expected to hit a frightening number of half a million deaths due to COVID.
The president then will address the nation at 6 p.m. ET to mark the lives lost to the deadly virus.
To put this in perspective, the death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed American lives lost in WWII and the Vietnam War combined.
There is good news on the horizon though as infections have fallen 77 % over the last six weeks. Still, Dr. Fauci warns that we may still need masks in 2022 and the population may need a booster shot in the Fall because of the new variants.
