【Ring the bell 900 times, for 900,000 people】

  The 12-ton bell inside the Washington National Cathedral is a tribute to the 1,000 dead with each ring.

In fact, whenever a funeral is held in that church, the death knell is tolled accordingly.

  200 times, 300 times, until now 900 times... The US media believes that this has become a "national expression of grief" in the United States.

The Washington National Cathedral in the United States said that every time the bell is ringed, it represents 1,000 dead, and the bell rings again and again.

  The death knell sounded again and again in the hearts of the American people.

  Some people who participated in the ceremony burst into tears.

This scene seems familiar, because the cathedral has held ceremonies many times, and the last time the bell was ringed for the 800,000 dead from the new crown happened more than 50 days ago.

On January 4, local time, in Puyalup, Washington, the staff of the nucleic acid testing site made preparations in a tent.

  Since the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the United States has been the country with the highest number of confirmed cases and deaths in the world.

  In 2020, the number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States was about 350,000, and in the following year, that number skyrocketed to more than 800,000.

  There was a bell ringing time during the period, only more than a month apart.

This means that in just over 30 days, 100,000 people in the United States died of the virus.

On September 15, 2021, local time, in Washington, DC, the United States, small white flags are being erected on the National Mall in Washington, each flag represents a person who has unfortunately died due to the new crown epidemic.

  At present, the epidemic situation in the United States is still very serious. There are hundreds of thousands of new confirmed cases of new crowns every day, and 99.9% of the new cases are infected with the Omicron variant.

The death rate of the new crown in the United States is higher than that of other developed countries, with an average daily increase of more than 2,600 deaths in the last week, a 30% increase from two weeks ago.

  The mandatory wearing of masks in schools and indoor public environments in California, Connecticut, Delaware and other states will expire or be phased out in February.

In some areas, opposition to wearing masks, vaccinations, and social distancing is still the goal of some people.

  Can this deafening sound like a flood of bells really "wake up" the country?
