The CDC released new data that depicts how many Americans who have died from COVID-19 also had contributing conditions.

Only 6% of COVID-19 deaths have the virus as the only cause mentioned, according to the report, revealing that 94% who died from coronavirus also had other “health conditions and contributing causes.”

“For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVOD-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
