CDC: Coronavirus Deaths Increase 40 Percent in One Week 


Coronavirus deaths have increased 40 percent in one week, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky told reporters Wednesday.

While Joe Biden said Donald Trump was responsible for U.S. coronavirus deaths in 2020, the death rate in the past week has increased 40 percent, or per the CDC’s moving seven-day average, 1,633 deaths per day.

An estimated 339,000 individuals have died from the Chinese coronavirus under Biden’s watch.

For perspective, the CDC estimated about 358,000 people died in 2019 from stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes combined.
