(John Ransom, Headline USA) According to data released by the government, COVID still ranked as the third leading cause of death last year, despite massive efforts by Biden to promote masking and vaccines.
COVID was responsible for 460,513 in 2021, a 20 percent increase over the 2020 numbers, said the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), according to Reuters.
These numbers are a sharp rebuke to Biden administration efforts to vaccinate and mask people in 2021, claiming that vaccination and mask mandates would, at the very least, reduce the number of deaths if not eliminate the number of deaths entirely.
Heart disease and cancer took the top two spots for causes of death, as is normal, according to CNBC.
People over the age of 85, and men in general, had the highest risk of dying from COVID last year. Asians and multiracial individuals had the lowest chance of death according to race, CNBC added.

Over 200 million people have been fully vaccinated against Covid in the United States, with over a half a billion doses given, with 66 percent of the population totally vaccinated and 78 percent of the population with partial vaccination, according to Our World in Data.
Experts are warning that 96,000 to 210,000 people could die from COVID in 2022, based on models that have been shared by researchers, according to a project that tries to estimate the impact of COVID.
However, one thing that’s been clear over the course of the COVID pandemic is that the experts often know little more than the general public does and has been unable to consistently predict the future course of the virus.
The Delta variant and the omicron variants of the virus have largely been blamed for embarrassing the Biden administration after President Joe Biden predicted that anybody who have been vaccinated had very little risk of either being hospitalized or dying from the disease.
“Viruses constantly change through mutation and sometimes these mutations result in a new variant of the virus. Some variants emerge and disappear while others persist,” said the CDC’s alibi for the disastrous Biden predictions.
“New variants will continue to emerge. CDC and other public health organizations monitor all variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 in the United States and globally,” added the CDC.
