Mainstream media is making COVID-19 sound like it’s killing billions of people. The reality is, yes, it is a new form of mortality, but it is not killing as many people as you think. As of today, the United States has confirmed 301K COVID-19 deaths. We are sitting at about 25,000 deaths per month on average. Some months are bad; some are not so bad.
Our population is still increasing despite coronavirus. Data shows that the United States is still averaging an increase of 25,333 humans per month. (during coronavirus) Compared to the 61,833 monthly average growth in 2019. It is also anticipated we will see also see a coronavirus baby boom in 2021.
As a human population, we are still thriving and possibly overpopulated. Some researchers do not think coronavirus will make much of a difference in world population increase over time. Our world is still increasing in population at a drastic rate. Below is data on births and deaths.

Data gathered from the CDC*
Around the world, human population growth amounts to around 83 million annually or 1.1% per year. The global population has been growing from 1 billion in 1800 to 7.8 billion in 2020. It is estimated that it will keep growing, and despite COVID-19, the total population could hit 8.6 billion by mid-2030. By 2050 we would be looking at 9.8 billion, and by 2100 we could accumulate to 11.2 billion people.
The human population will have come to a real concern in the next hundred years. Sustainability and resources will become scarce. Maybe mother nature understands this concept better than we do. It sometimes seems like the earth creates catastrophes to cut down the population for its good.
