US COVID-19 Deaths In 2021 Surpass 2020, Johns Hopkins University

Covid- CDC Figures Reveal That 2021 Has Killed More Individuals Than 2020.

Research data shows that 377,883 individuals died from COVID-19 in 2020, accounting for 11.3 percent of all fatalities.

According to Johns Hopkins University research, the coronavirus has killed over 770,000 individuals since its discovery.

That means over 15,000 more people have died in 2021 than last year from COVID-19 – and there’s still more than a month left.

The CDC only tracks reported fatalities, so it’s possible more have died from COVID-19 in 2020 in which they didn’t include in their count.

New COVID infections are now on the rise in 38 states and health officials have been bracing for the possibility of a surge in cases over the winter.

Experts say a combination of factors are driving the surge: the seasonality of the virus, waning immunity, and many still unvaccinated Americans.

Despite the rising cases, fully vaccinated family members can “absolutely” enjoy the holidays together inside without wearing masks, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
