A new projection of opioid overdose death rates in the United States suggests that the number of fatal overdoses — which reached 47,600 in 2017 — will rise sharply in the coming years. By 2022, such deaths would peak at about 75,400. According to Jagpreet Chhatwal of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, who led the research, the opioid epidemic “is not finished growing.” Currently, opiates kill an average of 130 people a day in the country, an increasing proportion of which were initially hooked on street drugs like heroin.
