US Covid-19 Deaths Increase with the Delta Variant

According to a Reuters calculation, the number of coronavirus-related deaths in the United States hit 800,000 on Sunday, as the country prepares for a potential spike in infections due to greater time spent indoors with colder weather and the highly transmissible Omicron strain of the virus. The number of people who have died in the United States as a result of this virus has now surpassed the population of North Dakota.

Due to the more contagious Delta strain and people refusing to get immunised against Covid-19, the country has lost more victims to the virus this year than in 2020, despite vaccines being readily and freely available. Over 450,000 people in the United States have died after contracting Covid-19 since the beginning of the year, accounting for 57 percent of all Covid-19 deaths in the country since the epidemic began. According to health authorities, unvaccinated people accounted for the majority of the deaths this year. Despite breakthroughs in Covid-19 patient care, death rates have risen.

According to a Reuters investigation, the spike from 600,000 to 700,000 deaths in the United States took 111 days. It only took 73 days for the next 100,000 people to die. According to the Reuters study, other countries have lost much fewer people per capita in the last 11 months. According to a Reuters analysis, the United States ranks last among the Group of Seven (G7) wealthiest nations in terms of Covid-19 per capita deaths between January 1 and November 30.

The death rate in the United States was more than three times that of Canada and eleven times that of Japan. Even when compared to a bigger pool of wealthy countries with vaccine availability, the United States scores near the bottom. The United States is ranked 30th out of 38 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
