Whoa, Covid-19 is now the second leading cause of death in the US when we look at deaths per week for April 6 to 12.
- Heart disease 12,626
- Covid-19 12,392
- Cancer 11,437
- COPD 3,279
- Accidents 2,911
Next week I fully expect Covid-19 to officially become the official leading cause of weekly deaths in the US.
Actually and because we are so undercounting the additional deaths above expected right now (think nursing homes where people die without testing and so are not counted), Covid-19 deaths are undoubtedly the leading cause of death in the US this week.
Covid-19 is not the flu. Please give it the fear and respect it deserves.
