NEW YORK – The New York Times dedicated Sunday’s front page to a long list of names of people who died in the coronavirus pandemic. Names and brief descriptions from obituaries across the country fill six columns under the title “Deaths in the United States almost 100,000, an incalculable loss “, with the subtitle:” They were not just names on a list. They were us. “

According to Simone Landon, deputy editor-in-chief of the graphic design office, the list of full texts replaces the usual articles, photographs and graphics in order to convey the vastness and variety of lives lost.

A count by Johns Hopkins University indicates that more than 96,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States.

Tom Bodkin, creative director of The Times, said he did not remember any front pages without pictures, although there were pages with only graphics, during his 40 years at the newspaper.
