We should really just start dividing the count by vaccinated vs. unvaccinated deaths.

That isn't fair for the first half million or so that didn't have a choice.

But after that. Yes

I'm pretty sure we passed 1M a few months ago. Lots of under-counting, and especially in the early days, bad methodology. For example, in some jurisdictions, if someone died of covid, but was never tested, and many weren't, the cause of death was not listed as covid.

Lots of pneumonia in summer 2020 and into the fall.

Are there any good articles on excess deaths in 2021? I know 2020 has been discussed well, but I haven't really seen anything on 2021 to estimate about what might be COVID related beyond what is marked.

Some countries undercount, some overcount.

I'm hoping that the 'nu' variant that was first detected in South Africa is both as mild as reported so far as well as as contagious as reported so far.

I'm fully vaccinated pending a booster so I'm just gonna trust social isolation. And probably hashish.

Prediction: republicans are going to use Omicron as their excuse to get vaccinated, save face

I think we'll have to get booster shots every time we get a new "G", as in 5G, 6G, etc. It will just make sense to upgrade your tracking chip at the same time.

At this point just accept that there is a significant portion of humanity that hates other humans and has no regard for their lives or those of others, and do whatever you can to protect yourself until this burns out or kills you, whichever comes first. My mother used to say that you should never try to teach a pig to sing, it wastes your time and annoys the pig. We have a lot of swine among us, and they're all bad singers.

I am sitting out back, waiting  to check on my 11yo little girl.  She got her second shot this am.  She is not feeling well and vomited.  She told me 'Dad, I am fine.  I don't want to get sick from idiots.  I will sleep it off and tomorrow is a new day.'

Fark you jackwads that can't get your shot because your toilet facebook research said it is not valid.  If my 11 year girl can do it, you pansy ass trumpanzee farks can do it.

Excess deaths were over 1M.

And that is despite 3-5 months of 2020 having a huge drop in all other causes due to shutdowns, and the virtual non-incidence of all non-covid respiratory diseases during winter 2020/21.
 
2021-11-27 10:30:59 PM  
But which state has had the most Covid deaths per capita? Obviously California has had a lot; it's a big state with a lot of people.

My mom lives in a rural town in Idaho, population 171-- and she knows more people who have died of Covid than I do.

My youngest got really sick from her second shot as well.     I hope that your daughter is feeling better, and very soon.

I hope that you are feeling better as well as you seem to have some pent up rage or something going on.

I'm thinking more the 2021 numbers in particular though. Is there any good site that tracks that given that this year has had no lockdowns and vaccines? Just curious what this year looks like compared to say 2018/2019

The day before Biden took office, the US hit the milestone of 400,000 deaths from covid.

Now we're sitting at 777,000.

At the current rate of infection, Biden's death toll will surpass Trump's before year-end, this despite having vaccines widely available for the vast majority of his 10 months in office.

Though I'm sure someone will be along to assure us that on the issue of Covid-19 that Biden is winning the epidemiological battle if not the epistemological one.
