The New York Times has given just one heading and description on the front page – ‘US Death Near 100,000, An Incalculable Loss’, which means about one million deaths, incalculable damage in the US. On the same page as the description, it is written on the left side – ‘They were not simply names in a list, they were as’, in this list, they were not just names, they were us’.
