For the timeframe between January 1, 2020 and December 15th 2021, 53,000 people have died of COVID-19. In the same timespan, as many as 79,000 people have died from fentanyl.

Fox News spotlighted this and highlighted the parties that raised the alarm about recently published CDC data. The Families Against Fentanyl activist group highlighted the issue of fentanyl poisoning to their Twitter feed on Wednesday.

James Rauh, founder of the group, proposed "declaring illicit fentanyl a weapon of mass destruction would activate additional and necessary federal resources to root out the international manufacturers and traffickers of illicit fentanyl and save American lives."

Politicians like Senator Ben Ray Luján have tried to stress the danger of the opioid epidemic to Congress.

It’s believed there is a connection between the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic and the steep rise in fentanyl deaths. The DEA reported the main sources of fentanyl coming into America have been from Mexico and China. Places like Snapchat are said to be a marketplace where fentanyl is advertised.

Within the week of December 7-14, Arizona troopers seized 37 pounds of fentanyl as it was transported over state borders. Yahoo News paints a much more grim picture – they report that the 15,000 pounds of fentanyl seized in 2021 is more than enough "to kill every American." That report also mentions the social media factor of the equation in facilitating the black market for illicit drugs.

They noted that the cartels offer to sell on commonly used U.S. social media sites, she said. "The cartels have harnessed the perfect drug-delivery tool — social media applications that are available on every single smartphone in the United States."

An earlier report by the New York Post says that with the state of Texas seizing 886 pounds of fentanyl, that equals roughly 200,790,522 "lethal doses."

The drug seizures are part of Operation Lone Star – a Texas initiative to curb the entry of human traffickers and drug runners into the state.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced Monday that his government would release a report on the fight against synthetic drugs like fentanyl. The report is expected to look at seizures over the last three years.
