Donald boi was busy focusing on Namaste Trump, returns back on 25th Feb.
It took nearly 52 days, 1701 confirmed cases and 40 deaths for him to declare it as a national emergency.https://t.co/OwxFvkLbf8
So many people for whom I happen to be their NYT contact — parents’ friends, sources from old stories, etc - are reaching out to say thank you for the front page. Here’s the backstory on my amazing colleagues who crafted it. I thank you too. https://t.co/Rztk1ZxmPq— Amy Harmon (@amy_harmon) May 24, 2020
"Putting 100,000 dots or stick figures on a page doesn’t really tell you very much about who these people were, the lives that they lived, what it means for us as a country”— Sascha Venohr (@venohr) May 24, 2020
Zoom in and read closely. It's much more than a list of names. How it was made: https://t.co/uVJAS7yUVg
The backstory about Sunday's NYT Page One: @marclacey says "I wanted something that people would look back on in 100 years to understand the toll of what we're living through." I'm sharing the front page on @CNN with @AnaCabrera now... https://t.co/QJ253FNsk8— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) May 23, 2020
"Mr. Bodkin said he did not remember any front pages without images during his 40 years at The Times." The story behind today's @nytimes, conceived by @simonelandon & brilliantly executed by the paper's print and digital teams (online version shown here) https://t.co/IYE6Ct11bj pic.twitter.com/HFaCsveWJN— Michael Bierut (@michaelbierut) May 24, 2020

Barbara Harvey ('20), Alex Matthews ('20) & Yuriria Ávila ('21) part of @nytimes team that creates stunning, historic 1A without images—instead passages from newspaper obits across the country—to convey the vastness and variety of lives lost to Covid-19. https://t.co/bT6ZVWsv66— Berkeley Journalism (@ucbsoj) May 24, 2020
They were all a father, a mother,— Naoko Mori 森尚子 (@naoko_mori) May 24, 2020
a son, a daughter. As @nytimes says “They were us”.
To think that these 1,000 people are ‘only’ 1% of the nearly 100,000 people in the US who’ve died..
And the 343,364+ people worldwide...
Utterly heartbreaking 💔https://t.co/OaKaFC1hEf
A front page full of obituaries. @nytimes marks the incalculable loss of a hundred thousand lives in America to #COVID19.. it is a numbingly sad image, but a necessary reminder that the fear of contagion is real. This is us, the paper says. It is, indeed. https://t.co/WA23v1NErQ— Maya Mirchandani (@maya206) May 24, 2020
These were our friends, neighbors, and family—they were us. 100,000 have been lost to the gross incompetence of the American government. This loss could have been avoided.— Andom Ghebreghiorgis (@AndomForNY) May 24, 2020
We need to rebuild this country for the living as a nation of compassion. https://t.co/0cFVzBh4VP
4/ @nytimes this morning has a sobering front page w/ short one-line obituaries of some of the 100,000. I wrote my piece anticipating this milestone w/ no idea they were doing this. I’m glad to see this affirmation of the value of human life here. https://t.co/p1oKaer6Gr— Alan Cross (@AlanLCross) May 24, 2020
