US COVID-19 Death Toll: The White House said on Thursday that the number of people who lost their lives to Kovid in the United States has crossed one million. President Joe Biden said in a statement, “Today, we achieved a tragic milestone, the loss of one million American lives to COVID.” The President expressed his condolences to those who lost loved ones during the pandemic. He called on residents to “be vigilant against this pandemic”.

This is the highest official figure for deaths from Covid in the world – although the World Health Organization believes the actual death toll may be higher.

Over 80 million covid cases registered
The US has recorded more than 80 million Covid cases out of a population of 330 million. The first confirmed case was reported on 20 January 2020, when a person flew from Wuhan, China to Seattle. The 35-year-old survived after 10 days of pneumonia, cough, fever, nausea and vomiting, but deaths started coming in a few weeks later. In two years, the death rate has dropped, reaching a high of more than 4,000 a day in early 2021.

Public health experts attribute a number of reasons for the high US mortality rate – including high rates of obesity and hypertension, increased pressure on hospitals, hesitation about vaccines and a large elderly population. Each US state may have a slightly different way of defining Covid deaths, and such deaths are often not caused by the virus alone.

‘We have to be careful’
President Biden, marking one million deaths, said in his statement, “As a nation, we must not panic with such misery, to stay healthy, we must remember. We have to be vigilant against this pandemic and make every effort to save as many lives as possible.”
