NY Times: BTW, More People Have Died From COVID This Year Than Last

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hey, remember this?

And then just 5 days before he took office?

Biden proposes a science-led New Deal to end pandemic suffering

There have been lots and lots of plans, lots of pledges and promises. All sorts of mandates, with more mandates in the works. Yet

Despite Vaccines, the U.S. Has Lost More Lives to COVID This Year Than Last

This was supposed to be the year vaccines brought the pandemic under control. Instead, more people in the United States have died from COVID-19 this year than died last year, before vaccines were available.

As of Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had recorded 386,233 deaths involving COVID-19 in 2021, compared with 385,343 in 2020. The final number for this year will be higher, not only because there is more than a month left but because it takes time for local agencies to report deaths to the CDC.

COVID-19 has also accounted for a higher percentage of U.S. deaths this year than it did last year: about 13% compared with 11%.

Experts say the higher death toll is a result of a confluence of factors: most crucially lower-than-needed vaccination rates, but also the relaxation of everyday precautions, like masks and social distancing, and the rise of the highly contagious delta variant.

Essentially, public health experts said, many Americans are behaving as if COVID-19 is now a manageable, endemic disease rather than a crisis — a transition that will happen eventually but has not happened yet.

OK, let’s consider: in January 2021 there were about 95,000 deaths. Let’s cut a third of, as Joe took office on the 20th. That would leave us with around 323,233 deaths since Biden took office. Will there be enough deaths by the end of the year? Hopefully not, but, this was just about the only other reason that Biden was elected, dealing with COVID, over Trump. The other being Trump was a big meanie. But, Trump dealt with a novel virus released by China (intentionally or unintentionally). Biden has been dealing with the known. His plans do not work. He loves restricting citizens (while playing Mask Theater himself), but, what’s working?

They can blame this on some refusing vaccination and other things, but, Joe said he would end this. The masking hasn’t worked. Trying to force vaccination hasn’t worked. And Joe has nary a bad word for China. You know if Trump was president this would be top of the page reporting for every Credentialed News outlet, Blamestorming him and his administration.

    If not enough people get vaccinated, there will be more people dying from Covid in 2022 than died in 2021. DUH.
