Covid will be a leading cause of death in the U.S. indefinitely, whether or not the pandemic is 'over'
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, or IHME, a research organization at the University of Washington that regularly models Covid deaths, predicts a decline in Covid deaths over the next two months.
According to findings from the Lancet’s Global Burden of Disease study in 2019, Brunei has 1,574 cases of dementia, with the figure expected to rise to 7,317 by 2050, Health Minister Haji Mohd Isham said.
Chris Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, estimates that only 4% to 5% of infections are being reported, because so many are uncovered through at-home tests and aren't reported to public health departments, or they aren't being detected at all.

‘Massive global failures’: Experts call out world leaders for COVID response. Here's what went wrong.
In The Lancet Commission published Wednesday, authors detailed “massive global failures” that led to more than 6.9 million reported deaths and ultimately an estimated 17.2 million deaths, as reported by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
"La ricerca IHME - riferisce Christopher Murray, direttore dell'istituto IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) che ha messo a punto il metodo usato per il conteggio - mostra che nei primi 2 anni di pandemia quasi 145 milioni di persone in tutto il mondo hanno sofferto di uno dei tre gruppi di sintomi che caratterizzano il Long Covid: affaticamento con dolore fisico e sbalzi d'umore, problemi cognitivi, mancanza di respiro.
“Knowing how many people are affected and for how long is important for health systems and government agencies to develop rehabilitative and support services,” said Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which conducted the research for the WHO.
"What has happened is [people in] the states where they refused to get the vaccine, or were hesitant to get the vaccine, got infected," Dr. Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist with the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle, told ABC News. "What we are seeing is due to waning immunity, we are going to enter winter with a higher percentage of people who are susceptible."
A pesar de que muchos pacientes con coronavirus se recuperan con el tiempo, alrededor del 15 por ciento todavía experimenta síntomas después de 12 meses, según el Instituto de Métricas y Evaluación de la Salud (IHME) de la Universidad de Washington.
While many long COVID patients recover over time, around 15% still experience symptoms after 12 months, according to the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).
Un estudio sobre la edad de iniciación del tabaquismo a nivel global elaborado en 2019 por el Instituto de Métricas y Evaluación de la Salud (IHME, por sus siglas en inglés) estima que alrededor del 82% de los fumadores actuales comenzaron a fumar entre los 14 y los 25 años.
The JAMA pediatrics study utilized excess mortality-derived estimates from the WHO, The Economist and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
Ali Mokdad, professor of global health at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, said only high-income countries, and the rich in several countries, are able to access the drug at the moment.
Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, said his group is predicting a rise in COVID cases, deaths and hospitalizations this fall. “But the rise in mortality and hospitalization will not be similar to what we have seen before, simply because most people have some kind of immunity against illness,” Mokdad said.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington built an influential Covid-19 forecast model early on in the pandemic, but will not be doing the same for monkeypox. "In our mind, this disease is not going to spread into the community as wide as we've seen with Covid," said Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist and professor of health metrics sciences at IHME.
