I think you missed the point.
With all the vaccinations throughout the world, a better treatment regime, and with two months of the year to go, the deaths are significantly higher.
Again, it is you who is missing the point. You are comparing almost 11 months of the current year against 9 months of the last year. It was end of March last year that the virus started to spread as is obvious from the graph. So first compare apples with apples. It is also clear if you take similar time durations, 1st March to December 31st last year compared to 1st January to Sept 30th this year, the cumulative death toll this year is similar if not less, not significantly higher.
If the provisions that have been taken, including vaccinations, deaths should be trailing off, or at worst stabilising. They obviously are not, they are increasing.
Death will always be increasing, if you are looking at a cumulative death count graph. But they do appear to be tapering off somewhat as we near year end. The problem is the provisions have not been taken to a large extent in many areas of the States and the effectiveness of the vaccine is now starting to wane, so a booster will be necessary.
Whether the deaths come from vaccinated or unvaccinated , they are still deaths.
You seem to be implying that is not relevant. That is very relevant.
What we cannot see in these graphs is the what the death toll would have been if no measures were taken and no vaccine was available.
