Coronavirus in US: More than one lakh new cases of COVID-19 were reported in America on Saturday. Earlier, there were so many cases in winter. The reason behind these cases is the highly contagious delta variant of the virus and another reason is the low vaccination rate in the south. Health officials fear that if more Americans do not get vaccinated, the number of hospitalized patients and the death toll could increase steadily.
Full vaccination of 50 percent people in the country has been done. More than 70 percent of the adult population has had at least one vaccine. Rochelle Valensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told CNN this week, ‘Our models show that if we don’t vaccinate people, there could be thousands of cases a day that peaked in January. May be equal to the cases at the time of arrival.
11 thousand cases were coming every day in June
On an average, 11,000 cases are being reported every day in the country since the end of June. Now this number has increased to 1,07,143. In the US, after a gap of nine months, the daily average number of cases reached 100,000 in November. By the beginning of January, the daily cases had reached around 2,50,000. The number of patients admitted to the hospital and the death toll is also increasing. Although both these figures are still less than in January, but it is worth noting that vaccines were not available so widely then.
Increase in the number of hospitalized patients
Right now more than 44,000 people suffering from COVID-19 are admitted in hospitals. According to the CDC, these have increased by 30 percent in a week. These figures have increased four times as compared to June. In January, more than 120,000 people were admitted to hospitals. According to John Hopkins University, on an average, about 500 people died within a day on Friday, according to an average of seven days. Two weeks ago this figure was about 270 deaths. In January this figure was 3,500 per day.
the situation is worse in the south
The situation is particularly bad in the South of America, where vaccination rates are the lowest. According to the CDC, the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in the Southeast region has increased by 50 percent compared to the previous week. Last week, where an average of 11,600 patients were getting treatment daily, now this number has increased to 17,600.
