2021 US COVID death count surpasses 2020 toll: Live updates


Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Data shows that COVID-19 caused more deaths in 2021 than it did in 2020.

The disease was reported as the underlying cause of death or a contributing cause of death for an estimated 377,883 people in 2020, accounting for 11.3% of deaths, according to the CDC.

As of late Sunday, 770,461 people total have died as a result of the coronavirus, CDC data says. That means around 14,700 more people have died in 2021 than last year due to COVID-19 — and there’s still more than a month left in the year for that number to grow.

The CDC figures only account for reported deaths, and it’s likely that more people died in 2020 due to COVID-19 than the recorded number; 2020 coronavirus-related deaths in the U.S. weren’t tracked until February.

In 38 states, new COVID cases are on the increase. Health officials were anticipating a spike in the number of these cases in the winter. 

Experts believe the sudden surge in cases is due to a mix of factors, including the seasonality and waning immunity of many Americans who are still not vaccinated.

Despite the rising cases, fully-vaccinated family members can “absolutely” enjoy the holidays together inside without wearing masks, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
