Reflexes

  • The United States has the highest death toll of any country.
  • More than 200 million Americans, or more than 60 percent of the population, have been fully vaccinated.
  • At the time of the first introduction of vaccination, the death toll in the country was about 300,000.

Baltimore: The death toll from the corona virus in the US surpassed 8 lakhs on Tuesday, of which more than 2 lakhs died when vaccines were available. On these deaths, Democrat Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress were silent on the steps of the Capitol building last night to pay tribute to them. The death toll, compiled by Johns Hopkins University, equals the combined population of Atlanta and St. Louis, or the total population of Minneapolis and Cleveland. The United States has the highest death toll of any country.

The United States accounts for about 4 percent of the world’s population, but accounts for about 15 percent of the 5.3 million known deaths since the start of the pandemic in China two years ago. The actual death rate in the US and around the world is believed to be much higher because many cases of death were overlooked or hidden.

Forecasting models from the University of Washington project a total of more than 880,000 deaths in the US as of March 1. Health experts lamented that there were many cases of death in the US that were heartbreaking because they could have been prevented by a vaccine. The vaccine was available a year ago in mid-December and was available to all adults in mid-April of this year. About 200 million Americans, or more than 60 percent of the population, have been fully vaccinated.

At the same time, to keep the virus in check, scientists say it is too little. Dr. Chris Bearer, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said: “The lives of those currently dying from the infection could have been saved. It’s happening because they didn’t get the vaccine and you know it’s a tragedy terrible “. When the vaccine was first introduced, the death toll in the country was about 300,000. In mid-June this figure reached 600,000 and in October it exceeded 700,000.
