Could 252 LGBTQ Americans Have Died Yesterday Of Covid-19 And Why Are We Not Talking About It?

The U.S. on Wednesday reported the highest number of new cases of the coronavirus and the most COVID-19 deaths since the pandemic began.
As of 1:30 a.m. Thursday, more than 3,600 Americans died Wednesday from complications of the coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking coronavirus infection data.
Data from the COVID Tracking Project revealed more than 230,000 new coronavirus infections and showed 113,090 Americans were hospitalized with the virus — a number that’s been on the rise since Dec. 6. America seems to be have a wave ontop of a wave. This data based on standard acceptance of the American LGBTQ population percentage means likely more than 252 LGBTQ Americans died yesterday of Covid-19. Queer News Tonight has repeatedly reported that the Queer community has been more adversely afftected by Coronavirus because of the effects on industry’s of entertainment, service (including restaurants and bars), travel and more. Cases, hospitalizations, and especially deaths are likely a greater percentage of simple population. There seems to be little study or analysis of the statistical affects of Covid-19 on the LGBTQ community. But at Queer News Tonight we draw attention to yesterdays record day of the harm of this pandemic. And very likely more than 252 of our Queer Brothers, Sisters, And Non Binary family were lost yesterday. As 2020 comes to a close, we remember.
