The US and the UK have been witnessing a surge in the numbers of COVID-19 deaths. In the US, the number of fatalities increased to an average of over 1,900 a day for the first time since March. On the other hand, the United Kingdom recorded 160,000 deaths, as yet.
According to reports, the increasing number of COVID-19 infections have crowded the hospitals, complicated the commencement of the school year and delayed return to offices in the United States. Experts in the US opined that the coronavirus disease is preying largely on a distinct group: the unvaccinated Americans.
As per the US department of health and human services, the seven-day average of US hospital deaths with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 dropped by 8.9 percent from the latest peak on September 16. Reportedly, around 24 individuals died in one week at CoxHealth Hospitals in the US Springfield Branson area.
In addition, West Virginia has had more deaths in the first three weeks of September when compared to the past three months. Georgia is recording nearly 125 deaths per day.
A data from Johns Hopkins University stated that around 64 percent of the US population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and yet, the average number of deaths per day increased by 40 percent in the last weeks. It increased from 1,387 to 1,947 in the past two weeks.
On the other hand, official data issued on Friday displayed 35,623 new COVID-19 cases and over 180 deaths in the last 28 days. The UK’s Office for National Statistics stated that there have been 160,000 deaths registered in the country where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 vaccination in the UK continues to be an incredible success. As yet, 93,350,658 COVID-19 jabs have been administered across the nation.
