The New York Times newspaper has devoted Sunday’s entire front page to a long list of names of people who have died in the coronavirus pandemic.

The names and brief descriptions culled from obituaries from around the country fill six columns under the headline: "U.S. Deaths Near 100,000, An Incalculable Loss," with a subheadline reading: "They Were Not Simply Names on a List.  They Were Us."

The all-text list takes the place of the usual articles, photographs and graphics in an effort to convey the vastness and variety of lives lost, according to Simone Landon, assistant editor of the graphics desk.

A tally kept by Johns Hopkins University says more than 97,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the United States, while the Worldometers website showed more than 98,000 U.S. deaths.
