NYTimes front page filled entirely with the names of 1,000 COVID-19 victims


‘An incalculable loss’: Powerful New York Times front page cover has 1000 names of people who have died from COVID-19 but that just reflects ONE PER CENT of the toll


A powerful New York Times cover for Sunday’s edition features 1000 names of people who have died from the coronavirus – just around one per cent of the total death toll.



The striking front page was shared across social media platforms on Saturday evening and had the head: ‘U.S. deaths near 100,000, an incalculable loss.’
‘They were not simply names on a list. They were us,’ the page reads.


Attached to each persons’ name is their age and a few descriptors about their lives.

Names continue to be listed inside, along with an essay from Times reporter Dan Barry.


The project was spearheaded by Simone Landon, assistant editor of the Graphics desk for the New York Times, who wanted to show the ‘vastness and the variety of lives lost.’


Landon and her colleagues also felt that ‘both among ourselves and perhaps in the general reading public, there’s a little bit of a fatigue with the data,’ the New York Times reports.
