House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) issued a statement on Monday expressing her sorrow for the reported 500,000 lives that have been lost in this country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The loss of 500,000 American lives from the coronavirus is an horrific human toll of staggering proportions and incomprehensible sadness,” Pelosi said. “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,” she said. “As we pray, we must act swiftly to put an end to this pandemic and to stem the suffering felt by so many millions.”

NBC News reported on Sunday that, according to its count, 500,000 people have now died in the United States as a result of COVID-19. “The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 500,000 on Sunday, according to an NBC News tally,” NBC reported.

The Johns Hopkins University website on Monday was reporting that the total number of U.S. deaths as a result of COVID-19 was 499,186.

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which bases its numbers on actual death certificates, as of Feb. 17 there had been 460,234 deaths in the United States “involving COVID-19.”

The CDC explains the lag time in its count of COVID-19 deaths as follows: “It is important to note that it can take several weeks for death records to be submitted to National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), processed, coded, and tabulated. Therefore, the data shown on this page may be incomplete, and will likely not include all deaths that occurred during a given time period, especially for the more recent time periods. Death counts for earlier weeks are continually revised and may increase or decrease as new and updated death certificate data are received from the states by NCHS. COVID-19 death counts shown here may differ from other published sources, as data currently are lagged by an average of 1–2 weeks.”
