The USA Exceeds Terrifying COVID Milestone: Over 800,000 Deaths
SHARE

The USA has become the most affected country by the COVID pandemic pretty rapidly, and it didn’t show signs of leaving the position for some other country. The nation still holds that statistic today, unfortunately. If we take a look at information brought by worldometers.info, we understand the magnitude of the situation: the USA has reported more than 51 million COVID infections since the pandemic started.

Most people who get infected with the coronavirus will have to deal only with mild to moderate symptoms. They’ll even recover without the need for special treatment. But unfortunately, many people lost the battle with COVID in the USA and left our world – hopefully, for a better one.

821,335 COVID deaths in the USA

So far, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has killed 821,335 people from the USA, according to information brought by the same source mentioned above.

The Delta variant of the coronavirus has made the disease spread faster than before. As a result, more Americans died in 2021 because of COVID than in 2020, as the CDC reports.

Dr. Anthony Fauci declared for CNN recently, as cited by Yahoo.com:

We’re dealing with Delta,

We’re dealing with a much more formidable virus in every respect.

Worldometers.info also reveals that the second most affected country in the world by the coronavirus pandemic is India, as the state reports a total of over 34.7 million infections and more than 476,000 deaths. Brazil occupies third place, with over 22.1 million infections and a death toll that surpasses 617,000 souls. The UK is Europe’s most affected country by the ongoing pandemic and the nation that’s positioned on the fourth place in the ranking mentioned before. However, there’s nothing surprising considering that the UK has reported more than 10.9 million infections and over 146,000 deaths caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Nations across the world are now fearing the new Omicron variant of COVID, as scientists are unsure yet about its potential.
