CDC projects more than 62,000 deaths from COVID-19 next month

AP TELLS STAFF TO ‘AVOID EMPHASIZING’ COVID CASE COUNTS AMID SHIFT IN COVERING PANDEMIC Since the pandemic’s beginning, 844,562 people in America have died of COVID-19. The CDC also pointed out that recent national total death forecasts have “shown low reliability, with more reported deaths than expected falling outside the forecast prediction intervals.”

In addition, it said that national forecasts predict 17,900-48,000 new hospitalizations will likely be reported on Feb. 4. The CDC added that state- and territory-level ensemble forecasts predict the number of newly reported deaths per week over the next month will likely increase in 33 jurisdictions.

The U.S. reported 2,421 new deaths in the past day and 12,442 over the past week, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.  COVID-19 HOSPITALIZATIONS REPORTED IN US HIT NEW HIGH

“We have seen … the death rates are down from omicron of about 91%. And, we will need to follow those deaths over the next couple of weeks to see the impact of omicron on mortality,” she said. “As you note, given the sheer number of cases, we may see deaths from omicron. But, I suspect the deaths that we’re seeing now are still from delta.” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

In a White House COVID-19 response team press briefing, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday that the delta variant was responsible for an observed 47% increase in deaths over the previous week. As the highly transmissible omicron variant of the coronavirus continues to infect across the nation, cases and hospitalizations have risen to record highs.
