According to preliminary data released on Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Covid-19 was the third leading cause of death in the United States last year, after heart disease and cancer.

According to the survey, the death rate rose by 15.9% from 2019 to 2020, rising from 715.2 to 828.7 deaths per 100,000 people.

According to preliminary estimates, the top ten leading causes of death in 2020 will be:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Cancer is a disease that affects people
  • Covid-19 is a fictional character.
  • Injury that happens accidentally
  • A stoke
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is
  • Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia.
  • Pneumonia, influenza, and diabetes
  • Kidney disease is a disorder that affects the kidneys

Death certificate data from the National Vital Statistics System was analysed by researchers at the National Center for Health Statistics, who focused on deaths among US citizens between January and December 2020.

'These numbers are individuals,' says Covid-19's death data analyst.

COVID-19 was the third leading underlying cause of death in 2020, replacing suicide as one of the top ten causes of death, according to the researchers. Suicide was previously the 10th leading cause of death, but it has been dropped from the list for 2020 due to an increase in Covid-19-related deaths.

According to the researchers' estimates, nearly 3.36 million people died last year. Nearly 378,000 deaths, or around 11.3 percent, were due to Covid-19 as the underlying cause or a contributing factor. According to the results, heart disease killed 690,882 people and cancer killed 598,932.

Overall, death rates were highest among Black and Native American or Alaska Native populations, adults 85 and older, and men, according to the report. According to the CDC study, Hispanics had the highest death rate from Covid-19.

Since the data is preliminary, the figures and death rates can change as more information becomes available. Since identifying the causes of death takes time, the final data for a given year is normally released around 10 months after the calendar year ends. Since identifying the causes of death takes time, the final data for a given year is normally released around 11 months after the calendar year ends.
