Moreover, the coronavirus is only the third cause of such deaths. In the first place, heart disease is usually heart attacks; on the second – cancer. Together, these factors caused 600 thousand deaths over the specified period, and the coronavirus – 350 thousand. It is noted that such a drop in life expectancy was recorded for the first time since the Second World War.
Overdose of drugs and diabetes are called dangerous in terms of the number of deaths – about 100 thousand people died from this disease in two years. And the overdose, according to experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, began to go off scale during this period.
However, the largest category of preventable deaths remains the coronavirus. There are now nearly 810,000 deaths from this virus in the United States. High mortality rates from covid persist even now, amid the spread of vaccines: more than 1,000 Americans die from the virus every day, and most of them are unvaccinated.
