(ANSA) - NEW YORK, MAY 24 - While the United States is approaching 100,000 coronavirus deaths, the New York Times had decided to publish the names and brevinecrologists of a thousand victims on today's front page. "A thousand people represent only one percent of the total death toll - explains the newspaper in a brief introduction on the page entirely occupied by the text -. None of them were just a number". "JoeDiffie, 62, Nashville, Grammy-winning country music star" - reads one of them - and "Lila A. Fenwick, 87, New York City, first black woman graduated from Harvard LawSchool". And again: "Myles Coker, 69, New York City, freed from prison life", "Ruth Skapinok, 85, Roseville, California, courtyard birds loved to eat from their hand" and "Jordan Driver Haynes, 27, Cedar Rapids, Iowa , generous youth with a delicious smile. " "I wanted something that people could look at in 100 years to understand the extent of what we are experiencing," explained national editor Marc Lacey.
