Johns Hopkins University database confirms over 200,000 COVID-19 deaths in US

The John Hopkins University released a report on Tuesday related to the coronavirus-related deaths in the US. The report stated that the US surpassed 200,000 COVID-19 deaths. The deaths linked to COVID-19 in the US since February have also surpassed the number of Americans who lost their lives in World War I, the Korean War, the Afghanistan War, the Vietnam War, and the Iran War combined.

The US is the country that is being hit most fatally by the coronavirus. Brazil is in the second position with at least 137,000 confirmed deaths. In the world, the US possesses one of the highest COVID-19 mortality rates. The coronavirus infection killed 6 out of 10,000 infected Americans. Spain has a higher mortality rate compared to the US.

In the US, at least 6.8 million, the highest in the world, coronavirus cases have been reported so far. India is behind the US with 5.5 million confirmed COVID-19 cases. Brazil reported 4.5 million cases while Russia reported 1.1 million confirmed cases. According to the John Hopkins report, the number of newly infected cases decreased in the US in August.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top US health expert, said that Americans would face difficulties throughout the winter. He added that the weather conditions in winter would force Americans to stay indoors. It can increase the number of COVID-19 cases. The larger gatherings of people indoors can also spark the coronavirus spread, according to the health experts.

According to a model created by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, there is a probability of 175,000 more deaths in the US by January 1, 2021. An ease in the restrictions can increase the number of deaths up to 225,000. However, a global mask mandate can reduce the projected deaths by up to 65,000, the model predicted. The White House is using this model to take action in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
