Human

IMG_3591Clinton Cargill, assistant editor to the National desk, Simone Landon, assistant editor to the Graphics desk, researcher Alan Delaqueriere,  and writer John Grippe, with help from various members of the TIMES team combed various sources across the country to get the names and gleaned phrases from people who’ve lost their lives to Coronavirus.

Editors and graduate students pitched in, and in a time when politicizing this pandemic is reaching a high, the New York Times went higher and humanized it in the way it should be.

I appreciate the heartfelt manner in which they came up with a way to acknowledge the people behind these numbers.

    Yes, they were human. I hate the way our Carona Virus is dehumanizing people. Reports say refrigerator trucks have been brought to many nursing homes to store bodies until more funeral homes open. One very small nursing facility near me had 80 cases not long ago.
