Coronavirus Kills More Than 1000 Americans Per Day

    More than 1,000 in US die in a single day from coronavirus, doubling the worst daily death toll of the flu

    Michael James, USA TODAY


    The U.S. topped 1,000 coronavirus deaths in a single day for the first time Wednesday, a daily death toll more than double that of two of America's most deadly illnesses – lung cancer and the flu.

    Death counts from the virus are difficult to keep up to date, but the Johns Hopkins coronavirus database – whose sources include the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the European CDC and the National Health Commission of China – shows that the U.S. hit 1,040 cases Wednesday at 10:25 p.m. ET. Since the virus' first appearance in the U.S. in late January, 5,116 people have died and more than 215,000 have been infected.

    The previous high mark for a single day in the U.S. was Tuesday, with 504 deaths.

    Some researchers say the daily death toll could more than double – to 2,200 or more – by mid-April. That figure would eclipse heart disease, the nation's No. 1 killer with about 1,772 deaths per day, according to the CDC.

    “Our country is in the midst of a great national trial,” President Donald Trump said in a White House briefing on the virus. “We’re going to go through a very tough two weeks.”

    Lung cancer kills 433 people each day in the U.S. – that's the same number of seats on a Boeing 747 airplane, according to the Lung Cancer Foundation of America. Breast cancer kills about 116 Americans a day.

    The flu, a chronic killer that the nation has come to expect in yearly cycles – and the reason millions of Americans get flu shots – killed an estimated 508 people per day in the U.S. during the 2017-18 flu season, the nation's worst in the last decade, according to the CDC. This year's flu season has recorded an average of 383 deaths per day, CDC figures show.

    While health officials say COVID-19 is considered a flash medical event in that it is unlikely to maintain its deadly hold for more than three or four months, the 1,000 threshold is a significant one because it shows just how potent an unforeseen outbreak can be on the U.S. medical system.

    It also raises questions about COVID-19's possible deadly effects over time. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, has cautioned that the virus could become a recurring event, much like the flu. He said that the U.S. needs to get ready for the next cycle, possibly to occur in the fall of 2020.

    "We really need to be prepared for another cycle," Fauci said.

    Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, emphasized the need to continue developing a vaccine and test it quickly so it will be available "for that next cycle."

    A University of Washington study updated this week projects that if the entire nation makes an all-out effort to restrict contact, coronavirus deaths will peak in the next two weeks and patients will overwhelm hospitals in most states.

    Nationally, the University of Washington model predicts a peak daily death toll of 2,214 in mid-April, and a total of 84,000 Americans dead by the end of summer. That’s more than twice the lives claimed during the 2018-19 flu season, which killed 34,000 people, according to the CDC.

    But that figure represents the model’s most likely estimate. The range of scenarios spans from 36,000 COVID-19 deaths to more than 152,000, according to the research team led by Christopher Murray, founder and chair of the University of Washington’s Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation.

    As many as 240,000 Americans may die from the new coronavirus according to estimates released by the White House on Tuesday, a grim prediction that influenced President Donald Trump's decision to extend social distancing guidelines.

    Stopping medicine getting to sick people is a war crime, but that's just what the US does, at the behest of jedi pressure groups like "United against a Nuclear Iran".

    Bullshit numbers, based on laughable models and wild predictions, to be used as a vehicle for the New World Order's globalist plots. Not hard to figure out, if you have more than half a brain.

    Over 1000 people with sons, daughter, parents, nieces, nephews, friends, coworkers, loved ones, etc. dying from the coronavirus in a single day is not laughable nor bullshit.

    Oh, the virus is real, alright. And there's at least eight versions of it. Intentionally cooked up by the globalists in two Level 4 bio-labs in Wuhan, and then intentionally released in various parts of the world. They are using it as a vehicle to bring in their New World Order, or at the very least test for the next attack. The numbers are way overblown, based on flawed models which were intentionally altered to produce alarming numbers, in order to cause mass panic, mass fear, mass unemployment and mass shortages. The New World Order wants to destroy every society and every country worldwide, and then rebuild the world into their tyrannical One World Utopia of Peace and Security, but that will be far from the actual case. They have a worldwide army of disposable useful idiots at their command as well. To get to them, you'd have to go around the fools and the bought first.

    They keep two lists. Deaths due to underlying conditions who had the coronavirus, and deaths due to the coronavirus, but they keep the second list secret and refuse to disclose the numbers from that second list to the public. Anyone with even half a brain knows why, at this point.

    Why does the FBI keep documented records of all their crimes? These fuckwits record everything. They just figure you'll never get it.
