COVID death numbers studied

A new study of “excess deaths” estimates the pandemic’s true toll has already surpassed 1 million in the U.S.

Some 1.13 million Americans have died due to the pandemic, the researchers estimate. By comparison, the current total of reported COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. stands at around 960,000.

The new figures, published Thursday in The Lancet, are based on the number of “excess deaths” in countries around the world.

Researchers determined how many additional deaths occurred from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021 by modeling the number of “expected” deaths in years unaffected by a global pandemic, compared to the total number who actually died from any cause.
