I checked the COVID numbers at the New York Times and saw that on Wednesday, October 28, there were 81,457 new COVID cases reported in the United States.

I made a Facebook post with the following statement:
“81,457 new cases yesterday.”

Then after pushing ‘post,’ I immediately edited it.
“81,457 newly diagnosed people yesterday.”

It’s always people, families, and communities.

Then on Thursday, we hit another record.
“Approximately 86,000 newly diagnosed people.”

The numbers have names.
