Reporters claim that COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the US during the first week of December. According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, around 11,820 people died in the US during this week with is the highest of all. Ergo, this death rate number is very much high than the number of people who died because of heart disease, tracheal, bronchus and lung cancer, and some of pulmonary disease.
US is the nation where the COVID cases have surpassed around 14.3 million and more than 278,500 deaths have been recorded till now. And this is the highest number in all the countries suffering from the international pandemic of COVID. Furthermore, a model used by the US White House says that the death toll can reach half a million by March 2021 if the current going on trend remains continued. Whereas the same model says that if Americans will start wearing masks that too for 4 months only it will help in saving the lives of around 66,000 people. But it is up to the people only if they want to stay fit and okay or not.
Probing further, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance of universal mask wearing in all the activities taking place outside the house. CDC has also said that anyone who has been exposed to the disease should wear masks at home as well because this will help in protecting the other family members present there at the home. However, emergency approval of vaccines has already taken place just to prevent the people.
