Nationwide, there have been 978,514 cases of COVID-19 and over 55,261 deaths attributed to the virus, although critics are now saying that anyone who died while infected with the coronavirus is counted as a related death, even if they die of another condition, due to hospitals being incentivized to state COVID-19 as the cause of death.
