According to a recent report from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 60000 death been reported so far. Rise in the number of death is not only because of the coronavirus but also because of other illnesses. Because of the pandemic situation, many people are not visiting hospitals on the fear of this deadly virus. Dr. Arnold Monto University of Michigan researcher said that everybody is currently afraid to go to the hospital, and that’s why they are dying more frequently in the absence of getting proper treatment. There is no doubt that coronavirus has become popular in some places because many people are getting diagnosed with it daily, and killing hundreds of people. However, it’s not the only thing which is increasing the number of deaths in the country because people with heart disease and other illnesses require daily needs also.
They are not getting medical help because of the lockdowns happening all over the country. In Connecticut, the situation is quite worse because it has reported 2335 coronavirus deaths in April. Statistically, it has an average 2500 deaths in a month; however; the deaths mentioned above happened because of the coronavirus only. Other states like New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan witnessed 3000 more deaths in a single week, and it’s been certified by CDC statistics. The number of fatalities is currently about one week, and health experts think that the number would get significantly increased in upcoming weeks when they will get a more clear picture of the ongoing situation.
So far, the COVID-19 death toll has crossed the 60000 benchmark, which is an indication that this virus is far worse than expected. However, deaths happening because of car crashes are still the same in some areas, even during the lockdown. In some areas, car crash deaths are still the same because some people are deciding to drive like crazy even when there is no traffic.
