US Covid deaths reach 800,000, infections top 50 million
TRT World says Even with vaccines widely and freely available, US has lost more lives to the coronavirus this year than in 2020 due to the more contagious Delta variant and people refusing to get inoculated.
The United States has reached 800,000 coronavirus-related death and cases topped 50 million, as the nation braces for a potential surge in infections due to more time spent indoors with colder weather and the highly transmissible Omicron variant of the virus.
The milestone means the US death toll from this one virus now exceeds the entire population of North Dakota.
Even with vaccines widely and freely available, the country has lost more lives to the virus this year than in 2020 due to the more contagious Delta variant and people refusing to get inoculated against Covid-19.
