New York Times admits more coronavirus deaths under Biden “despite vaccines”

The New York Times delivered a disastrous statistic the day before Thanksgiving, admitting that more people in the United States have died from the Chinese coronavirus this year, under the leadership of President Joe Biden, than last year, despite the widespread availability of vaccines.

The Times cited figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday, which reported 386,233 coronavirus-related deaths in the United States for 2021. In the year 2020, the United States recorded 385,343 deaths . The first number should only increase, as there is still more than a month left in the year.

Citing “experts”, the Times attributed the increase in the number of deaths this year to a “confluence of factors,” focusing primarily on what he described as “fundamentally below-needed vaccination rates, but also the relaxation of daily precautions, such as masks and social distancing, and the rise of the highly contagious Delta variant.

Speak Times:

In essence, public health experts have said, many Americans are behaving as if Covid-19 is now a manageable endemic disease rather than a crisis – a transition that will eventually happen but has not yet happened.

Yet many also refuse to be vaccinated in the numbers required to make this transition to what scientists call “endemicity,” which would mean that the virus would still circulate at a lower level with periodic increases and decreases, but not peak in the devastating cycles that characterized the pandemic. Only 59% of Americans are fully immunized, the lowest rate of any Group of 7 countries.

However, blaming “below-needed vaccination rates” seems to defy logic, as the vaccine has been widely available for most of the year.

The same can’t be said for 2020, when the world was just beginning to find out what the virus was and where it came from. While the Trump administration decided to start vaccine production through Operation Warp Speed, vaccines were not widely available to the entire eligible population until this year. Even so, the deployment demonstrated that vaccinated people can still spread and contract the virus.

The Times also attributed the increase in deaths to “loosening daily precautions” – one of the main incentives offered to Americans when rolling out vaccines, many of which have promised vaccines would pave the way for Americans to return to normalcy pre-pandemic. However, this turned out to be false, as many localities and blue states reintroduced restrictions, including mask warrants, regardless of vaccination status.

That aside, Florida single-handedly disputes the claim that lax mitigation measures attribute the spread and increase in deaths. The Sunshine State, whose Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has come under constant scrutiny throughout the pandemic for prioritizing personal freedom and refusing to keep the state locked up, continues to have the lowest per capita coronavirus case rate in the country.

He never had a statewide mask mandate, even during the height of the pandemic.

The Times’ Its own coronavirus tracker, last updated on Wednesday, shows Florida reports a daily average of 1,397 cases, or seven per 100,000 – the lowest per capita rate in the country. Florida’s most recent figures reflect a 5% drop in cases over the past 14 days.

States that have reinstated mandates, such as Illinois, are not doing as well, reporting a daily average of 4,599 cases, or 36 per capita. This represents an increase of 73 percent over the same period.

Other blue states, including Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania, are experiencing similar trends.

Last year, in the second presidential debate, then-candidate Biden blamed President Trump for coronavirus-related deaths in the United States.

“220,000 Americans dead”, Biden said. “If you hear nothing else from what I’m saying tonight, listen to this – whoever is responsible for so many deaths should not remain President of the United States of America. “
