Written by Brayden McCoy on May 13, 2022
Yesterday, President Joe Biden ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff until sunset on May 16th. This is due to the United States reaching 1 million deaths from the coronavirus.
Biden stated in his address, “One million empty chairs around the family dinner table. Each irreplaceable. Each leaving behind a family or community forever changed because of this pandemic. Our heart goes out to all those who are struggling.”
As of May 12th, Wyoming has had over 157,000 cases of the virus and just over 1,800 deaths.
