1 in 500 Americans Died from COVID-19 – Consumer Health News

Only 53% of Americans are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, while 63% have had at least one dose, the CDC says. The nation is reporting a 30% increase in average daily cases during the past month, while average daily deaths have nearly tripled, according to CDC data reported by CNN. Unvaccinated people account for more than 9 out of 10 recent COVID deaths, according to CDC data.

“This statistic reflects the fact that for much of the pandemic the formidable toolbox in this country was not used, and many of these deaths were preventable,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, senior scholar with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. “This figure reflects how necessary it is to have political leadership that takes pandemic preparedness seriously while having a robust infrastructure to proactively spring into action, free from political interference.” The risk of dying from COVID-19 in the United States has now surpassed that of dying in a pedestrian, motorcycle or bicycle accident; drowning; choking to death on food, or dying in a fire.

The United States passed this tragic milestone as COVID-19 transmission spurred by the highly infectious Delta variant remained high in all states save for California, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s out of a total U.S. population of 331.4 million cited by the U.S. Census Bureau.
