Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged the deaths caused by COVID-19 during his Republican National Convention address on Aug. 26, 2020. "Tonight, our hearts are with all the families who have lost loved ones," he said. "We mourn with those who mourn, and we grieve with those who grieve. And this night I know millions of Americans will pause and pray for God’s comfort to each of you." COVID-19 has killed more than 177,000 people in the U.S. to date. Pence thanked first responders and others on the front line of the fight against the pandemic, calling them heroes and adding that "a country doesn’t get through such a time unless its people find the strength within."
