2020

How many people died in 2020?

More than 350,000 Americans died of COVID-19 in 2020. According to preliminary weekly data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (as of April 26, 2021), 3,427,321 people died from all causes in 2020.

Deaths were above average for nearly every age group.

Deaths in 2020 were above average for almost every age group compared to 2015-2019, according to preliminary data from the CDC. Deaths were around average levels for people 25 and younger, which is the age group least affected by COVID-19 deaths. Total deaths in this age group were actually slightly below average during lockdowns at the start of the pandemic. This may be because travel was down, perhaps reducing the leading cause of death for this age group — accidents.

However, deaths were 20-50% above average levels for most age groups. Deaths among people 25-44 were particularly above normal for much of the year, since deaths among people this young are generally low.

Weekly flu and pneumonia deaths were higher at the beginning of the year during the end of the 2019-20 flu season, though flu deaths were not nearly as high as the 2017-18 season, when an estimated 61,000 died of the flu alone. For comparison, the CDC estimates that 34,000 died in the 2018-19 flu season, and 22,000 died in the 2019-20 season.

Flu cases generally peak between December and February, so it remains to be seen if deaths due to flu and pneumonia will be significantly lower in the 2020-21 season due to increased public health measures in response to the pandemic. However, the CDC continues to report that flu activity is lower than usual. For example, between October 1, 2020 and April 17, 2021, a sampling of sites showed that the cumulative hospitalization rate for the flu was 0.8 per 100,000 people, which is much lower than average.

I have been working on this article for over a year now. I have been waiting for the 2020 numbers to be posted by the CDC. They take forever to do so. So I got tired of waiting and posted the best preliminary numbers I could find. I will update this article when the official numbers are posted. I am posting this article because I believe it is important for people to have facts. They can’t possibly make decisions on faulty data. By trending deaths the last 10 years we can truly understand the implications of the Coronavirus pandemic. While it is dangerous disease, did it warrant the global panic that ensued and the draconian measures taken to prevent its spread? Only time will tell. It is said that we have to wait 50 years before we can actually have a factual history of any event. This is due to bias that occurs when we try an do an historical analysis any sooner. Some of my readers may be around in 50 years, I frankly don’t think I will be here. So send me message telling me what happened.
