Since the beginning of this year, more than 299,000 more people have died in the United States than the average in the previous five years, writes the US government agency CDC. According to the researchers, the figures again show that the impact of the corona pandemic is greater than previously thought.

The official death toll as a result of COVID-19 in the US is over 216.00. But because not everyone who dies from corona is registered in this way, these numbers are less reliable. Death rates are therefore seen as a better, rough measure of the consequences of the corona virus.

Of the 299,000 additional deaths recorded by the CDC, two-thirds are attributable to the coronavirus, the researchers report. As previous research has shown, black and Latino Americans have been disproportionately hit by the pandemic.

But the CDC researchers also noted that people between the ages of 25 and 44 are badly affected. The number of additional deaths in this age group is 26.5 percent higher than in previous years. According to the CDC, it is not clear whether the spike in this age group is because more young people died from the coronavirus, or if there are other explanations. Excess mortality measures all deaths and not just corona deaths.

“The number of people killed by this pandemic is higher than we think,” said Steven Woolf, research at Virginia Commonwealth University who has conducted many similar studies. The Washington Post. “This study shows it. Others have already done so.”

The United States is only two weeks away from the new presidential election, in which the corona virus plays a major role. The country still has the most recorded deaths and positive tests worldwide. President Donald Trump has come under fire for his handling of the virus, the seriousness of which he has long publicly denied.
