About 40000 corona patients are hospitalized in the US, which is less than during the peak of corona in January.
People are being requested to wear masks
Earlier on Tuesday, CDC Director Rochelle Valensky urged all Americans to wear masks in public in high-risk areas. He said that the new advice on wearing masks is based on evidence, which shows that the delta variant is spreading even among vaccinated people. Even if the number of people who fall seriously ill due to corona is not the same without getting the vaccine. Significantly, the delta variant of the corona is more infectious and dangerous than the original virus. Due to this, cases are increasing in fast-paced vaccination countries.
Biden also asked to be cautious about Delta variants
At the same time, US President Joe Biden said that the number of deaths due to corona in the country has come down significantly due to the vaccination program. But there is a need to be cautious about the delta variant of COVID-19. Biden stressed the need for people to be vaccinated, saying that almost all of the patients who died due to COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized were those who had not been vaccinated. The delta variant is the cause of 80 percent of new cases of infection in some parts of the US.
