Far more Long Islanders died from COVID-19 this past summer than during the summers of 2020 and 2021, data shows, and doctors said those dying are mostly unvaccinated and vaccinated, but unboosted, people with weakened immune systems.

The increasing abandonment of mask-wearing and other precautions, and highly infectious omicron variants, are pushing COVID-19 positivity rates higher, contributing to the larger death toll, experts said.

From June 1 to Sept. 21, 304 Long Islanders died of COVID-19, according to state Department of Health data. That’s 46% higher than the 208 who died in the same time period in 2021, and 67% more than the 182 who passed away in the same period in 2020, before vaccines were available. Statewide death numbers also are up.

COVID-19 hospitalizations on Long Island and statewide also have been much higher than in previous summers.

COVID-19 positivity rates consistently have been high on Long Island for months — and more deaths than in previous summers.

Unvaccinated people, “are the people to which we unfortunately have to say, quote, the pandemic’s not over,” Glatt said.

There were an estimated 12,000 to 52,000 flu deaths a year during the decade before the pandemic, according to CDC data.

Modeling shows that the country is on track to see between 110,000 and 180,000 COVID-19 deaths a year, he said.

There were nearly 385,000 COVID-19 deaths in 2020, before vaccines became widely available, and about 460,000 in 2021, according to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.
