COVID-19 is The Third Most Common Cause of Death in US: CDC

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy explained why he still wears a mask on aircraft despite the lack of a mandate in a Twitter conversation, noting that “our actions impact others,” The Hill reported.

Today, we’ll look at new CDC statistics on COVID-19’s ranking as a cause of mortality, as well as how many fatalities may have been avoided if more people had been vaccinated.

According to a report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 was the third most common cause of death in the United States in 2021.

With 415,000 COVID-19 fatalities last year, the statistics illustrate the virus’s toll. After heart disease (693,000 deaths) and cancer (605,000 deaths), Coronavirus was the biggest cause of death.

COVID-19 was the third most common cause of mortality in 2020, although the virus caused 60,000 more fatalities in 2021 than in 2020.

Vaccines have been freely accessible since last year, but many Americans have not taken advantage of them.

Last year, COVID-19 was the fundamental cause of death for 415,000 persons, and that number rises to 460,000 when fatalities, where COVID-19 was a contributory factor, are included.
