Medicine overdose deaths in the US tick up again to another record high, according to CDC data

The unknown rise in medicine overdose deaths in the United States continues, reaching another record high, according to new provisional data published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC estimates that people failed due to medicine overdose in the 12-month period ending November 2021. Periodic medicine overdose deaths have further than doubled over the once six times, jumping 16 over the once time alone.
Synthetic opioids– including fentanyl– were involved in about two-thirds of medicine overdose deaths over the once time. While deaths involving heroin have declined in recent months, deaths involving synthetic opioids or psychostimulants have nearly doubled in number over the once two times.
Over the once time, overdose deaths rose in all but three countries Wyoming, Hawaii and New Hampshire. A third of all overdose deaths passed in five countries California, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas.
