Global CCP Virus Death Toll Surpasses 1 Million

More than one million people have died as of Monday from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, commonly known as the coronavirus, a grim landmark for a pandemic that has smothered the global economy and changed the way of life for billions of people around the world.

“Its not just a number. Its human beings. Its people we love,” said Dr. Howard Markel, a professor of medical history at the University of Michigan who has advised government officials on containing pandemics and lost his 84-year-old mother to the CCP virus in February.

“Its our brothers, our sisters. Its people we know,” he added. “And if you dont have that human factor right in your face, its very easy to make it abstract.”

The true extent of the death toll from the pandemic remains unknown due to potential concealment by some countries—most prominently by China—where the ruling communist regime has instituted a harsh crackdown on information about the disease.

Discounting the CCPs concealment, the United States accounts for 205,000 deaths—the largest amount worldwide. Parts of Europe are getting hit by a second wave, and some experts fear the same fate may await the United States. Nearly 5,000 deaths are reported each day on average, according to official government data collated by Johns Hopkins University.

“I can understand why … numbers are losing their power to shock, but I still think its really important that we understand how big these numbers really are,” said Mark Honigsbaum, author of “The Pandemic Century: One Hundred Years of Panic, Hysteria and Hubris.”

When the virus overwhelmed cemeteries in the Italian province of Bergamo last spring, the Rev. Mario Carminati opened his church to the dead, lining up 80 coffins in the center aisle. After an army convoy carted them to a crematory, another 80 arrived. Then 80 more.

Eventually, the crisis receded and the worlds attention moved on. But the pandemics grasp endures. In August, Carminati buried his 34-year-old nephew.

“This thing should make us all reflect. The problem is that we think were all immortal,” the priest said.

The CCP concealed the contagion from the Chinese people and the worlds people for at least six weeks after becoming aware of the outbreak of the virus in Wuhan. By the time world leaders were notified, the virus had already spread far and wide.

In the United States, President Donald Trump moved quickly to ban travel from China at a time when his political opponents were focused on the impeachment proceedings.

The pandemics toll of 1 million dead in such a limited time rivals some of the gravest threats to public health, past and present.
