IN A YEAR

About 100,000 Americans have died from drug abuse

About 100,000 Americans have died from drug abuse in a year, an unprecedented balance linked to the Covid 19 pandemic and stockpiles of more dangerous narcotics, health officials said.

The number of deaths from narcotics overdoses has been rising for more than two decades, while it has accelerated in the past two years and, according to new data published on Wednesday, it has jumped by almost 30 percent in the most recent period.

 

Experts believe that the main causes are the increasing amount of deadly fentanyl in illegal drug stocks and the covid pandemic, due to which many addicts have been isolated and are unable to be adequately treated or receive other support.

 

"As we continue to make progress in the fight against the Covid 19 pandemic, we cannot ignore this epidemic of loss that has hit families and communities across the country," US President Joe Biden said in a statement.

 

"The figure is catastrophic. We have not seen that extent of drug overdose in this country so far," said Catherine Keys, an expert at Columbia University.
