Terrifying COVID Stats: the Virus Killed 1 in 500 People in the US

If we take a look even at the first official data that we can see, we find out that the US has been dealing with a total of 42.6 million infections and more than 688,000 deaths caused by the ongoing COVID pandemic. These are stats brought by worldometers.info.
But the statistics when it comes to the coronavirus almost never bring good news. In fact, it can get worse. And here’s a good example: according to CNN, 1 in 500 US residents have died after an illness due to COVID.

Over 688,000 deaths

In the US, an incredible number of more than 688,000 people have died because of COVID infection since the very first outbreak of the virus in the country, according to worldometers.info. The US remains the hardest-hit country by the COVID pandemic, and there’s no telling for sure when the horror will end.

Even though a significant part of the US population is vaccinated for COVID, the Delta variant keeps spreading like wildfire. Our World in Data reveals that 180 million people from the US had been fully vaccinated for the coronavirus.
The King County from Washington State is preparing to implement a new rule for those willing to enter restaurants, bars, gyms, and other indoor venues. Starting October 25, those people will have to present either proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test result for the coronavirus.

In other words, it seems to become more and more difficult to live in society without being vaccinated for COVID. Officials keep saying that it’s highly recommended to get vaccinated. We don’t say that all this pressure is either good or bad, but we’re eager to read your own opinion in the comment section!
