Los tiroteos masivos en los EE. UU. Aumentaron durante la pandemia de coronavirus, hallazgos del estudio

Los tiroteos masivos en Estados Unidos aumentaron durante la pandemia de coronavirus, e incluso se duplicó en julio 2020 en comparación con un año antes, según una investigación publicada en la revista JAMA Open Network Thursday.

Researchers focused on data between April 2020 y julio 2021 from the Gun Violence Archive on mass shootings, in which four or more people were killed or injured, not including the shooter.
In that 15-month period, había 343 more mass shootings, 217 people killed and 1,498 people injured in the US, than expected.
      The team observed an increase in mass shootings after May 2020, compared to trends in previous years. Había 88 such shootings in July 2020, 42 en julio 2019 y 45 en julio 2018, the team noted.
        City police departments are also reporting an increase in gun violence during the pandemic. En Chicago, shooting incidents are up 64% so far this year compared with the same period two years ago.
          El año pasado, había 611 mass shootings around the country, comparado con 417 a year earlier, according to Gun Violence Archives. This year there have been 498 tiroteos masivos, 34 just in September so far.
          After April 2020, the team said that there were an average of .78 additional daily mass shootings, .49 additional people killed each day and 3.40 additional people injured each day.
            Increases in mass shootings during the pandemic were observed across the 882 cities included in the data, but cities with both low and high pre-pandemic mass shootingsas opposed to cities in the middle of the rangecontributed most to the overall increase in fatalities.
            The large increase in mass shootings during the pandemic is consistent with the idea that this violence may be influenced by social and economic factors, the researchers note.
