HIV-Related Deaths Have Dropped Over Last Decade


Deaths related to HIV in the United States have declined 48% over the past decade. This is according to data released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, mortality rates for the virus are about 40% higher among Black people. This rate is in comparison to White and Latinx people, according to UPI. The trends are based on an analysis of deaths among HIV patients in the US between 2010-2018. Overall, death rates among HIV-positive people of all causes dropped 37% between 2010-2018.

  • Report: US Cancer Deaths Dropped By Roughly A Third In The Last Two Decades

    A new analysis by the American Cancer Society reveals death from cancer in the United States fell 31% between 1991 and 2018. Nevertheless, the organization also estimates that this year, nearly 1.9 million people will be diagnosed with cancer and more than 600,000 will die from it. According to UPI, cancer remains the second-leading cause of death in the United States. Significant gains have been made in four of the deadliest and most common cancer, namely lung, breast, colorectal, and prostate. Lung cancer is still the most common cause of cancer death nationally. However, the data showed death rates for the disease fell 2.4% annually between 2009 and 2013 and 5% annually between 2014 and 2018.

  • Buttigieg Slams Trump Jr. For Saying COVID-19 Deaths Are 'Almost Nothing'

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg lashed out at the eldest son of President Donald Trump on Friday. On Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. falsely minimized the deaths related to coronavirus, telling Fox News the Trump administration had the pandemic under control. Cases and deaths from the novel coronavirus in the US are rising rapidly. The US broke its single-day coronavirus case record last week with over 88,000 new COVID-19 cases in a single day, in addition to over 1,000 deaths. Business Insider reports Buttigieg criticized Trump Jr. for being 'out of touch' when he said US coronavirus deaths are down to 'almost nothing.' Tell that to any of the Americans who are confronting what is literally the worst mass casualty event in this country since World War II. Pete Buttigieg

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
