Highest Covid-19 Death Toll in 6 Months Reported

Highest Covid-19 Death Toll in 6 Months Reported

Oliver Atkins, Writer

Over 1,700 deaths due to Coronavirus were reported on Tuesday, November 17th, this being the highest reported in over 6 months. At this rate, research shows an American is dying every minute from Covid. With this, on average researchers are seeing 70,000 to 80,000 infections a day. 

Although this is a horrible statistic, breakthroughs in a vaccine by pharmaceutical companies are providing some hope. Success rates in a vaccine are 95%, which is much higher than the flu’s vaccination success rate. But this does not mean that people can begin going about their normal lives. 

Some cities, such as Denver, are going into an even deeper lock down due to people breaking Covid-19 guidelines. This vaccine will not be ready for distribution for months, so with this rise in cases, and deaths, shown on November 17th, things are looking worse and worse.
