ارتفاع معدل الوفيات جراء الجرعات الزائدة في الولايات المتحدة

By Ninian Carter

July 15, 2021 - عدد قياسي من الأميركيين توفي في العام الماضي جراء تعاطي جرعات زائدة من المخدرات، مرتفعاً ما يقرب من %30 إلى أكثر من 90.000 حالة وفاة، وفقًا لتقرير CDC الجديد*.

Drug overdose deaths in the United States rose by 29.4% in 2020, according to a new report by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.

An estimated 93,331 drug overdose deaths were reported in 2020 up from 72,151 estimated fatalities the year before.

Overdose deaths from opioids rose 37% in 12 months, to 69,710, largely fuelled by synthetic opioids like fentanyl and semi-synthetic opioids such as prescription painkillers.
