In a rather unfortunate update, the social media is going frenzy and mournful after seeing the American news dailys publishing 15 pages of obituary messages, like never before. The US' newspaper Boston Globe published 15 pages of the obituary in memory and respect for victims of coronavirus.
In the state of Massachusetts in the USA, more than 38 thousand coronavirus cases are recorded and more than 1700 people died due to the virus. The state's governor Charlie Baker recently spoke about the crisis situation as many cities like Dorchester have been seeing the rapid growing cases of COVID-19.
Seeing the shocking lengthy columns of obituary on a prominent newspaper, users on Twitter recall what happened in Italy. The famous news dailys in Italy too came up with long tributary columns after seeing thousands of deaths in the country and the US had not guessed it would happen in the world's most powerful country.
In the US, more than 40,000 people died due to coronavirus so far while 759,800 people are infected. 248,438 infected are from New York state. More than 2,420,439 are infected worldwide and 166,205 died from 185 countries and regions so far due to coronavirus.
A tweet last month showing the massive increase in obituaries in an Italian town was jarring. It also seemed so far away.â€” Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) April 19, 2020
