According to data provided by the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, as of Friday evening there have been more than 849,000 total deaths in the U.S. attributed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Late last week, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky made the stunning admission that 75% of COVID deaths in the U.S. occurred in people who had at least four co-morbidities.
COVID-19 cases continue to increase rapidly across the U.S., though this increase in case count is directly proportional to testing density. The increase in testing density is a direct result of local, state and federal vaccine or testing mandates, in addition to the fear porn being pushed various government entities and the mainstream media. As such, it is an unreliable indicator.
Additionally, amid surging demand for rapid COVID-19 antigen tests, a small real-world study suggests they may not be a reliable tool to curb transmission.
COVID-19 infections are increasing in Canada. There have been more than 31,000 COVID-attributed deaths reported in the country since the pandemic began.
LATIN AMERICA & THE CARIBBEAN
While fatalities are plummeting, Mexico leads in new reported COVID-19 deaths, followed by Brazil and Columbia. Across the region, more than 1,566,000 deaths have been attributed to the virus.
New cases are rising fast across Europe. Russia still leads the region in COVID-related fatalities, followed by Poland, UK and Germany. As of January 14, more than 1,914,000 COVID - attributed deaths have been reported across the region since the pandemic began.

VACCINE ADVERSE EVENT REPORTING
According to the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) between mid-December 2020 and December 3 of this year, more than 1,016,000 adverse events have been reported following COVID19 vaccinations. As it is estimated that only 1% of adverse events are recorded into the system, these numbers could be significantly higher.
Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.
Current VAERS reports (U.S. only) related to COVID-19 vaccines incl:
Urgent Care: 89,025
Bell's Palsy: 2,960
Heart Attacks: 4,825
