The U.S. this week hit another grim milestone as the coronavirus death toll in the country eclipsed 400,000 on Tuesday morning. Even more worrisome is that the death toll isn't only increasing but also accelerating.
From March through mid-August, the number of COVID-related deaths in the U.S. stood at about 157,758. Since then, the death toll has increased by a factor of 2.5. As it stands now, the U.S. is seeing an average of 3,200 coronavirus-related deaths per day, a huge increase from July when the U.S. was seeing an average of 500 COVID-related deaths per day.
