President Biden will order flags at half-staff Thursday to commemorate the deaths of one million Americans who lost their lives to COVID-19.

Biden released a statement Thursday morning honoring those who have died in the U.S. over the last two years of the pandemic. He is also set to address a global, virtual COVID-19 summit later in the day in a pre-recorded statement.

Various COVID-19 trackers have different totals for the number of Americans that died from the coronavirus.

NBC News has compiled data showing more than one million Americans have already been lost to COVID-19, while Johns Hopkins University’s tracker has the number at slightly above 998,000.
