US President Donald Trump also commemorated the deaths of the corona pandemic on the anniversary of the death of American soldiers on Monday.
“We are mourning all the families who have lost loved ones,” Trump said in Baltimore during a Memorial Day memorial meeting, looking at the corona crisis.
On the last Monday in May, war veterans and killed soldiers were traditionally commemorated in the United States.
Trump said tens of thousands of military personnel and members of the National Guard are currently fighting in the “war on this terrible virus.”
Together, they will defeat the virus and emerge stronger from the crisis, Trump said.
The United States has been most severely affected by the pandemic worldwide.
More than 1.6 million corona cases have been confirmed here, and approximately 98,000 people in the United States have already died as a result of an infection with the virus.
