Of course, there's no denying how unprepared the entire world was for this pandemic...

And Donald Trump's eagerness to tone down the virus didn't at all go to plan.

And even when the president tested positive for COVID himself...

He continued to play it down and insist that we can simply "live with the virus."

This was extremely alarming for many to hear from one of the most powerful leaders in the world...

And it got us all wondering... What's the progress with the much-needed vaccine?

More than 1 million people across the world have now died...

And it's heartbreaking to know that this number could have been prevented if more people abided by the vital social distancing and mask-wearing rules.

And now, our tragic death toll has just surpassed a horrific milestone. This is truly shocking, and reactions to the news came pouring in...
