In the United States, deaths from COVID-19 have fallen this year, but have not reached pre-coronavirus levels.
Based on preliminary data from the first 11 months of the year, fewer deaths are expected in 2022 than in the past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to recent reports, the mortality rate is expected to drop by about 3% by 2020 and by 7% by 2021.
The number of deaths in the United States is increasing each year due in part to the country’s population growth. The pandemic upended that record, making last year the worst year in U.S. history, killing more than 3.4 million people. If current rates continue, this year will be the first year since 2009 to see a drop in annual deaths.
Farida Ahmed, a mortality monitor at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in October and he said that the number of deaths from the virus in November has yet to be definitively determined, and that a spike in late December could change the final picture. I said it is possible.
“If the death rate holds up, the country’s death rate is still far from what it was before the coronavirus. This year’s census is expected to end with him a 13% increase compared to 2019,” he said. Told.
Amy Rose, professor of epidemiology and global health at George Mason University, said: “We are probably worse off than we were before the pandemic. Again, most of the annual variation is due to the COVID-19 ebb and flow, with more than 1,080,000 Americans dying from the disease since COVID-19 broke out in the United States in early 2020. .
Earlier this year, he had an estimated 73,000 deaths from COVID-19 in January alone, making him the third deadliest month since the pandemic began.
“The 2022 death cluster is within microwave range at the beginning of the year,” said Lily Ragtin, a researcher tracking COVID-19 mortality at the University of Texas. The numbers are down month-on-month, falling below 4,000 in April and averaging about 16,000 monthly deaths through November.
