The invisible deaths of Covid-19
876,664 deaths from Covid-19. There’s a statistic that the CDC has been tracking for a long time, which is basically this. You add up the number of people who died. You do this for a few years. You then draw a curve to ‘predict’ how many people die the next year. 876,664 more people have died than the predicted curve of deaths due to Covid-19 since February 2020. 385,326 is the official CDC count for 2020. 371,636 is the official CDC count for 2021. The rest are people who died indirectly due to Covid-19.
