St. Louis has seen 159 coronavirus deaths so far this year.
St. Louis has seen 125 homicides so far this year.
And 50 children were shot in St. Louis so far this year.
If the coronavirus continues to trend downward as it has in every country after around two months of pandemic then homicides will soon pass the number of coronavirus deaths in the city.
It’s good to keep things in perspective.
