Washington, D.C. — Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after our nation passed the tragic milestone of having lost half a million American lives to the coronavirus:

“The loss of 500,000 American lives from the coronavirus is an horrific human toll of staggering proportions and incomprehensible sadness.  Every life lost is a profound tragedy that we mourn and that breaks America’s heart.

“Members of Congress join Americans in prayer for the lives lost or devastated by this vicious virus.  As we pray, we must act swiftly to put an end to this pandemic and to stem the suffering felt by so many millions. 

“With the passage of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan this week, the American people will know that Help Is On The Way.”
