Grim Reaping

  • Total US deaths due to covid since 18 March 2020 : 547,510
  • Number of minutes in a year : 525,600
  • Deaths per minute over that 525,600 minutes : 1.04
  • Average rate at which Americans died of covid : 57.5 sec

I have to say, I'm impressed by these numbers.  For me that death rate was unimaginable 13 months ago.  I knew that it got high during the peaks, but until the anniversary of the shutdown I didn't think to notice that total deaths exceeded the minutes in a year.
