The names and brief descriptions culled from obituaries from around the country fill six columns under the headline “U.S. Deaths Near 100,000, an Incalculable Loss,” with a subheadline reading: “They Were Not Simply Names on a List. They Were Us.”The all-text list takes the place of the usual articles, photographs and graphics in an effort to convey the vastness and variety of lives lost, according to Simone Landon, assistant editor of the graphics desk.

A tally kept by Johns Hopkins University says more than 96,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the United States.Tom Bodkin, chief creative officer of The Times, said he did not remember any front pages without images, though there have been pages with only graphics, during his 40 years at the newspaper.

___SANTA FE, N.M. — A New Mexico state official says gatherings of more than 100 people may not be possible for more than a year because of the coronavirus pandemic.Tourism Secretary Jen PaulSchroer said it could be a year or 18 monthsbefore there’s either a vaccine or herd immunity. That creates the prospect that sports stadiums, concert halls and conference centers in the state could remain empty for months.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Schroer spoke during a webinar Thursday on reopening the state’s hospitality industry.The state had nearly 6,800 cases of COVID-19 with 308 deaths as of Saturday.___SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Hundreds of protesters rallied outside California’s state Capitol on Saturday to protest stay-at-home orders even as residents entered the Memorial Day weekend with newly expanded options for leisure.

California Highway Patrol officers closed the Capitol lawn to demonstrators, so speakers addressed the crowd from the back of a flatbed truck as an airplane flew above towing a banner with a picture of Gov. Gavin Newsom and the words “End his tyranny!”

Protesters waved dozens of flags and signs, many in support of President Donald Trump. Few people wore masks and there was little room for social distancing.The protest came as restrictions eased across much of the state. Some 45 of 58 counties have received permission to reopen most stores and many public spaces by meeting state standards for controlling the novel coronavirus.

Authorities continue to warn people to practice social distancing and other anti-virus measures, noting that the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths continues to rise.___HAGATNA, Guam — The Department of Agriculture in Guam has invited hunters to participate in a pig-hunting derby to provide food for families in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Pacific Daily News reported that the department announced that the two-day derby is scheduled to begin next Saturday. The department released a statement saying the derby is intended to feed families, foster familial hunter development and reduce the feral pig population.

Event organizers are working with mayors to distribute pigs whole and unprocessed to residents within their villages and provide safe handling guidelines.___RALEIGH, N.C. — Coronavirus outbreaks at meat processing plants are forcing North Carolina farmers to euthanize 1.5 million chickens, according to a state official.

Assistant Agriculture Commissioner Joe Reardon toldThe News & Observerthat this is the first time during the pandemic that farmers in the state have had to euthanize their animals. Roughly a third of the 1.5 million chickens already had been killed, Reardon said.

Chicken and hog farmers in other states also have been euthanizing millions of animals during the COVID-19 pandemic. North Carolina hog farmers have not taken steps to euthanize their animals, Reardon said.___FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — Eighteen soldiers assigned to the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division have returned to Fort Campbell after spending more than a month in New Jersey helping with COVID-19 response operations.

Fort Campbell officials say the soldiers deployed April 14 to help provide logistical support for the response to the new coronavirus outbreak throughout the Northeast. The troops helped receive, process and move supplies, equipment and personnel in critical areas affected by the virus outbreak.

Tim Walz is scrapping his 10-person limit on group gatherings and allowing churches to open at 25% occupancy if certain safety guidelines are met.

Walz’s decision comes after the state reported a record number of COVID-19 cases. He says the issue has been “a challenging one” because large gatherings raise the risk of spreading the virus.Walz says he understands the toll the pandemic has taken on the spiritual health of residents. His new executive order applies only to religious gatherings and not receptions.

While the leader of the Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis welcomed the change, the governor said parishes should not open if they don’t feel they can meet safety measures.Archbishop Bernard Hebda said in a letter to parishioners that limiting gatherings to 10 people had “burdened the Church’s ability to fully meet the sacramental needs of our faithful.”

___TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A woman who raised questions about Florida’s COVID-19 data after being ousted as the data’s curator had been reprimanded several times for violating Health Department policy, including for posting political commentary about the information, state records show.

Rebekah Jones’ comments over the past week and a halfin emails to researchers, interviews with a handful of media outlets, and blog posts have sought to sow doubt about the credibility of the data now that she is no longer in that role.State health officials strenuously deny any issue with the information’s accuracy as Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis seeks to make a data-driven case for a step-by-step reopening of the state’s battered economy following safer-at-home orders.

Jones has not alleged any tampering with data on deaths, hospital symptom surveillance, hospitalizations for COVID-19, numbers of new confirmed cases, or overall testing rates. She has, however, suggested Health Department managers wanted her to manipulate information to paint a rosier picture and that she pushed back.

___SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A hairstylist served 84 clients over eight days recently while experiencing symptoms of coronavirus, Missouri health officials say.The Springfield-Greene County Health Department said in a news briefing that the stylist worked between May 12-20 and announced in a Facebook post Saturday that 56 other clients were potentially exposed by a second stylist who worked five shifts from May 16-20 while experiencing very mild symptoms of the coronavirus.

All clients of the two stylists wore masks and will be tested. The owner of the business said in a statement that the salon will be closed until it goes through sanitizing and deep cleaningThe state health department reported 218 new confirmed cases of the new coronavirus, bringing the total to 11,558 since the pandemic began.

___RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina has failed to change its election laws to ensure that voters can safely cast ballots during the COVID-19 pandemic, voting rights advocates claim in a federal lawsuit.The nonprofit Democracy North Carolina and the League of Women Voters of North Carolina sued Friday on behalf of several elderly or disabled residents whose medical conditions make them more vulnerable to coronavirus.

The lawsuit alleges that several aspects of North Carolina’s absentee vote-by-mail requirements are unconstitutional because voters will have to risk exposure to COVID-19 to successfully vote.For example, mail-in absentee voters are required to complete the ballot in the presence of two witnesses or a notary. State law also requires voters to submit their registration applications at least 25 days before the election or else register in-person at an early voting site, the suit notes.

The lawsuit says that will result in millions of state residents either losing their right to vote or being forced to compromise their health in order to cast a ballot. The state Board of Elections and other state officials are named as defendants.___

___DOVER, Del. — The University of Delaware says it is laying off more than 1,100 part-time employees, mostly students, in a move to cut costs during the COVID-19 pandemic.TheNews Journal reportsthat students account for 805 of the 1,146 part-time employees who were notified of their layoffs on Thursday.

An email to employees said the layoffs, which take effect on June 1, do not affect adjunct faculty, graduate students, work-study students or employees whose wages are paid through external funding.But many adjunct professors will not have a teaching position in the fall due to a hiring freeze.

In April, the university announced that it faced a $65 million budget shortfall due to pandemic’s financial toll, including revenue lost from prorated housing and canceled athletic events.The university hopes to reopen campus in phases starting June 1 with certain research facilities.

___BAGHDAD — Iraq’s Health Ministry is reporting the steepest single-day spike in confirmed coronavirus cases since the government began recording cases in late February.The ministry reported 308 new cases Saturday, one day ahead of celebrations to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Curfew hours had been relaxed during the month of fasting, which contributed to higher daily rates of infection.

According to ministry figures, more than 4,200 people have tested positive for the virus in Iraq. At least 152 people have died.Roads have been clogged with traffic and supermarkets and shops have been packed with people preparing for the celebrations, likely contributing to the increase in infections.

___ALBANY, N.Y. — New York state reported its lowest number of daily coronavirus deaths in weeks in what Gov. Andrew Cuomo described Saturday as a critical benchmark.The daily death tally was 84 after a peak of 799 on April 8.Reducing the state’s daily death count to fewer than 100 seemed almost impossible several weeks ago, the Democratic governor said. That figure has remained stubbornly high even amid other signs of encouragement.

“In my head, I was always looking to get under 100,” Cuomo said. “For me, it’s a sign that we’re making real progress.”The number of hospitalized patients in the state that has been the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S. continued to fall, dropping to over 4,600.

Cuomo also announced that the region along the Hudson River north of New York City and south of Albany is set to begin reopening Tuesday, and that Long Island could follow suit Wednesday.___ATHENS — Two fatalities from COVID-19 were reported in Greece during the most recent 24-hour period, bringing the death toll to 171, health authorities announced Saturday.

Another three new infections have been recorded since Friday afternoon, raising the nation’s total to 2,876. The number of patients on ventilators stands at 20, while 99 have left intensive care.Greek authorities say they have performed 152,998 tests for the disease.

Thats a sad tribute to the people who suffered and died 😢 God bless them all They should also had names of people who suffered and survived Too bad within hours they have had to retract. Sellout media is such a joke! Trump's wish comes thru. You are all getting people mentally ill or making their mental issues worse. The perception from your headlines and constant 24/7 cable and internet news is that no one is surviving this, very little emphasis on the recover number, no hope on anti bodies, no hope on any treatment

3 million people die every year in this country. But you keep up the fear mongering. Then how were the deaths calculated if someone knows deaths are nearing 100,000 ? Any life insurance company would be able to give you a figure. That list would be ten fold if not for my president issuing a travel ban on the bar eaters.

BelindaBallard5 The Republican and Trump Cult Supporters are uninformed, ignorant, mostly uneducated and brainwashed. No amount of evidence will persuade an Idiot.' Mark Twain; In Trump's Orbit there are many Idiots. VoteBlue2020 Wonder if 'the truth' was listed as one of the deceased, after all the nytimes is where the truth goes to die.

Lets not forget the 600,000 babies that are murdered every year through abortion that the democrats love so much and endorse all the way to late term..... Did they mention anything about China? This is so much B'S. Who could possibly trust NYT, the propaganda spewing machine of the left. How can they actually know what these poor people actually died from!

“Incalculable”, yet calculates a number. God, nytimes is such trash. Previously read 10000 people. We’re pushing so fast to get to “normal” we’re not taking the time necessary to grieve. The lock downs haven't worked. Lmao. Only about 40% actually died from the boogieman in their system when they died from other ailments

Tragic Federal Reserves calculates it to be $6 trillion now and the future of American free enterprise and markets later. Seems pretty expensive to me. And how many human beings were ripped from their mothers wombs by abortion doctors since the beginning of 2020? That my friend is the incalculable number. Do they count? Instead of blaming China, you are blaming the president. Morons

About 500k people die from smoking in the US alone. Where is on this? please count all dead people as Covid 19 dead. It’s not incalculable if you know the number..... Thank you realDonaldTrump. Great job! It’s one of the greatest failures of presidential leadership in our history. realDonaldTrump YouAintBlack

Tragic ! So sad If you believe the Chinese low numbers ( Chinese are 10 times the US population) ( Wuhan is 2x NYC in Population ) I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. Social Distancing - The New Normal in the Corona Age Democrats governors in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are responsible for thousands of avoidable nursing home deaths.

Incalculable? What? Isn’t this illegal. Perhaps a HIPAA violation of PHI Wait we were told two million plus dead. Should not this smaller number b celebrated. ? And DeathlyDonald doesn't gaf about any of them. It will be the demise of his political career, failure that it is, in November. He murdered people via inaction.

..and your governor owns one out of each twenty of those deaths. One of every four is from your state.. I dunno...lots of old people who were more than half dead anyway. I’d bet a decent proportion weren’t exactly loving life Will it include the ones who died in nursing homes? You know the nursing homes NYGovCuomo forced to take WuhanVirus patients. YouAintBlack

Tragic beyond belief 💕💕💕💕 How did that happen? It was jus 30,000 two weeks ago. At this point that list could be full of people that did NOT die as a result of the WuFlu. Sure.. check 6 on the victim list.. SO they state a number of deaths, then say it's incalculable? Please include in that list of dead Americans, the death of trump’s presidency!

Just wondering, did the nytimes include the names of the nursing home victims that died as a direct result of Governor Cuomo’s death camp policy? It's calculable tho I think about those people everyday. But I am cynical over the NYT reporting it and that troubles me. Trump spent the day golfing and rage tweeting. You forgot to include that part.

Sensationalism is disgusting. We need more of this! More details on the lives of those we have lost to cv19. They are more than just numbers. It's not 'incalculable' if they know the number. If only this paper had told the truth from the beginning. Your lies cost lives. 😢 As far as I'm concerned, the nytimes and their 'Get Trump At Any Cost' style of reporting makes them culpable in this tragedy. 👀

In line with the early CDC forecast models. March 29. 2020 Why aren't flags lowered? Where are moments of silence? 'Nearly 100,000' is a calculation. It’s horrible the Wuhan China Virus was unleashed on the world. Fortunately we have a President that took decisive action banning flights from China. Pelosi and Biden wanted to keep the flights coming . Over a million U.S. lives were saved due to strong Presidential leadership.

Does this list only include those who died FROM the virus or does it include those who died WITH the virus? “A long list of names? We need every name. Age, gender, race etc. Remember when a 1,000 bed Navy hospital ship was docked in NY harbor, to house people with the wuhanvirus, with 0 patients but Cuomo put patients in nursing homes with elderly people? Remember that? 🤷‍♂️

there's also the point they are not dying FROM the coronavirus, they are dying WITH the coronavirus therefore the deaths are actually because the staffs weren't doing their jobs enough as well as the spread. WoW didn’t see them print the list of baby names aborted that dwarf that list in same time period!!!!!!!!

I will Make America Great Again with the +100.000 Zombie'sVodoo army that I will build with the covid19 that I am forming. nytimes' morbid obsession with deaths. NY has done well in trying to contain the new cases with 22% of the cases and around 30% of the deaths. Listing the names is a wonderful idea.

oh noez 33 911's, but to Republicans '100k American lives lost is tragic but...' OBAMAGATE And Trump yawns..... Actually sounds pretty calculated propaganda No proven accurate counts These deaths are ALL deaths No proof dying OF C-19 only WITH c-19 They want you to blame POTUS The virus was intentionally released from china / Stand up for your country!

But maybe its time to golf. The headline should be. “Thanks China” COME WITH ME! The failing NYT And then Donald Trump plays golf today. DumpTrump2020 Some morons still think it’s a hoax. Other morons refuse to wear a mask. including people who didnt die of covid at all ! NYT continues to be the purveyor of fake news

Who would buy a newspaper to read a list of 100,000 names? Now do alcohol related deaths. Better not include my dads name. I’ll sue them. DC stated Covid19, but he really died from heart failure. Did the nytimes publish a 1,000 names of the 80,000 Americans that died from the flu in 2017? No. Politicizing a deadly pandemic in an election year is not only shameful but disrespectful to those that died. Everyone should cancel there nytimes subscriptions, I am.
