(Bloomberg) – Kovid-19 cases are rising again in the US, with the course reversing after months of decline and there is a risk of another setback in a return to normalcy.
According to Johns Hopkins University data, on Wednesday, the average of new cases jumped to 57,695 on the seventh day, a 9.5% increase from the previous week, which would be the largest increase since January 12.
While this is a fraction of the peak in mid-January, the change in direction is worrisome as states open up their economies, a wide variety of cases escalate, and countries vaccinate more and more people to avoid another wave Scrambles to apply.
“We are not out of the woods yet,” said Ali Metkad, a professor at the Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s Health Metrics Sciences, which produces estimates of Kovid-19. “We are slowing down and in many places we are going in the opposite direction.
New York case numbers recorded this week by Johns Hopkins appeared to be inaccurate after data was delayed. However, this did not significantly affect the national trend, which is increasing to a similar degree without New York.
“Now is not the time to give.” We have goals, we need more vaccines, and we need more effective ways to get out of this, ”said Isaac, Medical Epidemiologist and Assistant Professor Issac Vesews at Cornell University in New York. “At this stage, it is really a tragedy that someone gets infected and dies.”
With a 10% increase, states should reconsider planning again and try to accelerate vaccination, targeting the most affected areas. The growing epidemic among young Americans, especially during spring break, is a major concern for those traveling, as they are less likely to receive vaccinations.
According to the Bloomberg Vacancy Tracker, the United States has vaccinated 1 in 4 people and has taken an average of 2.5 million doses per week in the past week. This is not enough to regain herd immunity, and many public health experts fear that there may be another surge before the vaccination drive reaches its full strength. Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama are among the slowest states in the country, which could reflect vaccination among Republicans, especially men.
