Coronavirus has become the third leading cause of death in the country after cardiovascular disease and cancer.
The past year in the United States became the deadliest in the history of the country due to the number of victims caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It was reported on Wednesday, March 10, by Politico, citing statistics voiced by specialists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
вЂњLast year, the US death rate rose 15% due to the COVID-19 pandemic, making it the deadliest year in United States history,вЂќ it said.
The official data, which are now at the stage of systematization, have been confirmed by representatives of the CDC and will be released soon in the regular official report on morbidity and mortality in the United States. This analysis is expected to present the full picture in detail, including by age, race, and demographic group.
At the same time, it is noted that deaths from COVID-19 became the third cause of death after cardiovascular diseases and oncology. Usually, in third place in annual statistics are вЂњunintentional injuriesвЂќ, officials say.
In total, more than 3 million people died in the United States in 2020, a government agency said.
Recall that the United States is in the first position in the world in terms of the number of detected cases of COVID-19 infection, as well as deaths. The top three also include India and Brazil.
