Skip to comments.More COVID deaths already reported in 2021 than in all of 2020

More people worldwide have died of COVID-19 so far this year than during all of last year, according to data tallied by Johns Hopkins University. So far, 3.77 million deaths have been reported since the pandemic began — with 1.89 million reported in 2021 exceeding the 1.88 million deaths counted as of December 31, 2020. ...
...Worldwide, an average of more than 9,000 deaths from COVID-19 are still being confirmed daily. That rate of newly reported deaths has steadily declined from its last peak in April, but remains higher than record daily tolls from November of last year....
...In the U.S., B.1.617.2 has already been spotted by labs in 49 states. "Nowcast" projections published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate it could make up 6.1% of circulating virus in the country.

but, maybe the CDC would like to explain how a locked-down country with locked down international air travel like the USA, got enough India-variant contamination to 'make up 6.9%" of all cases - in less than 4 months ??
Dying WITH covid is completely different than dying FROM covid. They’re still not counting each category correctly.
“…explain how a locked-down country with locked down international air travel like the USA, got enough India-variant contamination to ‘make up 6.9%” of all cases - in less than 4 months ??”
Well, hopefully the unvaccinated and so-far-uninfected (and thus lacking natural immunity) are now small enough of a percentage of the total population that the variant won’t be able to spread rapidly or far. Time will tell.
“Billy, let’s go!”
not to dismiss your argument, my FRiend, but this is politics now. Trump was smeared with a claim of mismanagement causing 300K deaths in a year. Now, in less than six months, a similar bloody crown of 300K sits on Biden’s head. And I intend to rub the Dems’ noses in every death, whether it’s with or of.
There’s no doubt in my mind that the dems will try very hard to downsize the numbers to make Biden look better. But to do that, they’d have to downsize last year, too, something they’d be loathe to do because it would make Trump look not so bad after all. In the meantime, they’re painted into a corner so let them wallow in the humiliation of their very obvious and very public failure to control the pandemic they ran on ending.
Well, yes, but where do you draw the line? If someone who died had viral pneumonia and tested positive for covid, do you agree that he died from covid?
It’s not true that most people who died from/with covid would have died within months anyway. Where I live there lives a man is his 60s who climbs the highest mountain in the region (4,341 ft) every day (sometimes even several times a day). He dresses very lightly even in winter (without a T-shirt). We can say he is in top form for his age. He had covid and it was no walk in the park. He didn’t have to be hospitalized, but he had a very high fever for 10 days. If someone is in his 60s, covid can turn serious very easily, but such people can normally expect to live 5-15 more years.
Large countries like India withdrew Ivermectin and deaths soared. Then they re-instated ivermectin and deaths plummeted. So naturally, they withdrew Ivermectin AGAIN. I think they want to halt India from producing Ivermectin and shippign it to the rest of the world.
Then, they are seeing ‘breakthrough’ Covid, and ADE as a result of vaccination, which looks like Covid. These deaths result from vaccination but are being counted as Covid.
From what I have read about how Ivermectin works, it appears to me that it would interfere with these mRNA so-called “vaccines”. So, apparently you have to risk infection to get the injection.
It also appears that Medicine is gone, as a profession, along with the Hippocratic Oath. I grew up hearing that Doctors did not want to see antibiotics abused because they understood that mishandling their use could lead to resistant and more virulent strains of disease.
This virus is one giant mishandling of a deliberately released infection.
It is going to get worse, if our “leaders” have anything to say about it.
Idiot! Did you not see that the CDC admitted that only 9,210 people died from COVID-19 last year? The others died WITH the virus. Less deaths than the flu each year!
Idiot. A little strong don’t you think.
Let me help educate you understand this nonsense about death with vs from covid.
Let’s say you have stable lung disease and obesity like a good chunk middle age Americans. Your life expectancy is still another 20 years if you are 55 despite the comorbidities. You get Covid and it progresses to advanced stage and you die.
What killed you? Did you die with or of covid. In this case you died OF covid. You weren’t going to die anyway in the next week. But you would have us count this as dying with CoVId instead of covid. That would be wrong.
You just stop this bull crap that there are less than 10,000 primary covid deaths. I know y’all want to point to the occasional traffic death that had covid that got counted. Fine. Those are wrong. But after careful analysis and really understanding as on another threat there are 500,000 excessive deaths 2021 over 2020. Up 19%. This number usually stays plus or minus 1%. This leads to a number of around 450,000 deaths FROM covid last year in America (not the 650k reported on worldometer) but definitely. Not 10,000
Probably wise not to call people idiots when your statements would tend to suggest the same about you.
CBS News is not a reliable source.
Who in their right mind climbs a mountain several times a day? Just stay up there and come down later.
Just look at the death rates in countries with malaria....and look up on the CDC web site the drugs they take for malaria....Fauci killed thousands of people....
Every death is covid.
No one died of anything else.
Covid jabs are counted as covid deaths.
Good way to hide the poison.
The USA numbers do not look the same way as the world numbers.
From the National Center for Health Statistics (part of CDC):
USA - 2020 (53 weeks because of Leap Year) - 390,000 COVID Deaths
USA - 2021 (22 weeks) - 200,000 COVID Deaths
In terms of comparison, it is important to point out that 2020 had only 700 USA COVID deaths in the first 12 weeks of the year.
It is likely that USA COVID deaths in 2021 will be significantly less than 390,000.
We can’t believe ANY statistics having anything to do with COVID!
No one really KNOWS, everyone has an agenda.
WHO are you going to trust? Certainly not WHO.
China? Yeah, right. Biden, Yeah, right. Fow-Chi?, Yeah, right.
Trust your gut.
