Other Diseases Did Not Rest During the Pandemic


According to recent studies, more people are dying in the United States during the pandemic, but not because of COVID-19. With limited access to proper medical attention, more people are stuck at home without any means of finding relief.

Another factor that could be contributing to this dilemma is that people are afraid to come and see an Internal Medicine Physician in McKinney, Texas.

In a study led by Dr. Steven Woolf, professor of family medicine and population health at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, they found a huge increase in excess deaths from underlying causes such as diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease in Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania – the five states with the most COVID-19 deaths in March and April.  New York City experienced the biggest jumps, including a 398% rise in heart disease deaths and a 356% increase in diabetes deaths.
