Remembering those who died of COVID-19 in 2021

We remember Belarmina Martinez, 66, of Reno, Nevada, who died of COVID-19 in January, and Courtney Isaiah Smith, a jazz pianist in Utah, who died of COVID-19 at the age of 37 this year.

These are just two of the more than 800,000 people who have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic began almost two years ago.
