Miami-Dade County joined the nation in honoring the 400,000 lives lost during the COVID-19 pandemic yesterday.
In a statement, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said, “So many families have lost loved ones during this devastating year. It’s important that we come together as a community and as a nation to mourn, reflect, and remember all those we have lost. We honor their lives by doing everything we can to protect our community and end this pandemic, as we work together for a better future.”
