The United States Surpasses 1 Million Covid Deaths

US president Joe Biden gave a presidential announcement to the whole world yesterday, confirming that over 1 Million people have died from Covid-19 in the United States.

The United States now holds the highest number of verified Covid-19 deaths in the world, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The first reported case of Covid-19 in the US was on January 20th 2020 in Seattle, Washington State, after a tourist coming back from Wuhan in China tested positive.

The WHO and the US government surmise that this is due to 6 reasons:

1: America's high obesity rate.

2: The large number of Americans with Hypertension.

3: Overworked and Understaffed private hospitals.

4: Vaccine Hesitancy during early and mid 2021.

5: America's large number of elderly citizens.

6: A majority of Americans living in large metropolises like NYC and San Francisco.

Of the 50 states in the Union, California has the most with 90,000 confirmed Covid-29 deaths in the Golden State and counting.
