Another tragic milestone has been reached by the United States in its fight against COVID-19. Two years ago, the first COVID-19-related cluster was identified in Wuhan, China, Friday saw the country surpass 900,000. According to public health experts, the coronavirus will soon cause 1,000,000 deaths.

Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist from Johns Hopkins University who has been keeping track of the deaths due to COVID-19 during the pandemic, said, “It’s absolutely astounding.” “It’s unreal, frankly. It’s an even greater heartbreak, as if the loss 900,000.000 souls wasn’t enough.

Lauren Ancel Meyers, University of Texas at Austin epidemiologist, said that the “horrible landmark” did not have to occur.

President Joe Biden recognized the “tragic landmark” and encouraged Americans to take action.

Biden stated that he urged all Americans to get vaccinated and have their children vaccinated. It’s easy, free, and effective. It can save your life and those you love.

According to data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rolling seven-day average daily death rate for COVID-19 has exceeded 2,000 since Jan. 23. This is nearly three times more than the November average of 700 daily COVID-19 deaths, which was reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vaccines can prevent most serious diseases and deaths

The number of Americans who have had at least one dose (of the COVID-19 vaccine) of the Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine has increased as a result.

The percentage of Americans who are fully vaccinated is only 64%. According to Rochelle Walensky, CDC Director, unvaccinated Americans were 97 times more likely than those who had their omicron boosters during the recent surge in the omicron variant.

Public health experts agree that more vaccinations and boosting would have decreased the number of deaths. “We would have at most 300,000 fewer death.” “Probably more… than that,” said Dr. Ashish Jha of Brown University School of Public Health. “But at most 300,000 Americans who died would still be with me. It’s tragic.”

The latest data from the CDC shows that 42% of eligible Americans received a booster.
