As the coronavirus pandemic continues to hemorrhage 1,000 lives daily in the U.S., COVID-19 now ranks third for cause of death in this country. The leading causes of death in the U.S. are heart disease and cancer, but COVID-19 is gaining fast, CNN reported Monday. “Covid is now the No. 3 cause of death in the U.S. – ahead of accidents, injuries, lung disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and many, many other causes,” Dr. Thomas Frieden, a former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told CNN. “Last week, Americans were eight times more likely to get killed by COVID than were Europeans.”
