A closer look at U.S. deaths due to COVID-19


… critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

… Briand focused on total deaths per age group and per cause of death in the U.S.

… the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19

… the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same

… it has also not increased the total number of deaths

… related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual

… there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease

… this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes

… the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19

… number of total deaths by all causes before and after COVID-19 has stayed the same
