The CDC announced in July that there were 93,331 overdose deaths in the US in 2020.
Provisional data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics indicate that there were an estimated 93,331 drug overdose deaths in the United States during 2020, an increase of 29.4% from the 72,151 deaths predicted in 2019.
The data features an interactive web data visualization. The new data documents that estimated overdose deaths from opioids increased from 50,963 in 2019 to 69,710 in 2020. Overdose deaths from synthetic opioids (primarily fentanyl) and psychostimulants such as methamphetamine also increased in 2020 compared to 2019. Cocaine deaths also increased in 2020, as did deaths from natural and semi-synthetic opioids (such as prescription pain medication).
Also in 2020, for the tenth year in a row, there were no deaths due to global warming. ZERO. Not a single death. And yet this is what the media and Democrats want you to believe is the greatest existential threat facing the country.
We are being led by idiots and liars.
