U.S. to Hit Record COVID-19 Deaths in January, But ‘Pro-Life’ Evangelicals Don’t Seem to Mind
According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, the U.S. is poised to hit a record number of COVID-19 deaths in January.
So far more than 79,200 people have died in January, which will likely outnumber the 77,400 who died in December 2020, reports CNBC:
Over the past seven days, the country has reported an average of more than 3,300 Covid-19 deaths every day, up 12% compared with a week ago, according to Hopkins data.
“Pro-life” evangelical activists, who claim to care about human lives, have been mostly silent during the entire deadly pandemic, and continued their silence in January.
So far, 427,432 Americans have died from COVID-19.
Christianity Today noted in June 2020 that white evangelicals (who are usually pro-life) were fading in their concern about the deadly virus.
Baptist News noted the coronavirus was not in the top three concerns of white evangelicals in October 2020.
