US coronavirus: Nation reports highest number of deaths since May and experts say pandemic is accelerating

On Wednesday, at least 1,893 people died from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University – the highest death toll in the country since early May.

Already, more than 241,700 people have died. And as the virus runs rampant in US communities, that number continues to grow.

Another 110,000 Americans Are estimated According to the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, they will lose their lives in the next two months.

Things are as dire as they seem, with new reports fueling the epidemic as the country approaches a critical holiday.

Reports warn of ‘the most widespread outbreak experienced to date’

White House Coronavirus Task Force Reports distributed to states this week warned of “accelerating community in half the country.” The taskforce warned last week of a “significant decline in the Sunbelt”, leading to “the most widespread outbreak experienced to date”.

Another indication from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Policy Lab projects is that it will intensify in the coming weeks in the West Coast, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

Hospitalizations, ICU admissions and ventilator use are on the rise in every state, the lab said.

“In every Midwestern state, more than 25% of COVID-19 patients occupy ICU beds,” it reported.

The U.S. reported the highest number of hospital admissions Wednesday – with more than 65,000 Kovid-19 patients nationwide, COVID Tracking Project.
“The almost universal increase in hospitalization rates across the state, especially in our colder regions, is a pattern of increasing as we go into the holidays,” Policy Lab Said.

A critical vacation ahead

Experts are concerned that some Americans may turn a deaf ear to their warnings as they prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday – large family and friends’ gatherings here could help increase the number of infections.

“For those who do, public events are safer than at home, and the gap is important to the conscience of individuals who cause old harm from other families,” it said. “But more important is the commitment to detention before visiting the family.”

The holidays mean that many college students return home to spend Thanksgiving with family and unknowingly bring the virus back with them. College campuses across all 50 states have reported Kovid-19 cases since the epidemic began, and organizations across the U.S. are implementing new measures amid a resurgence of infections.

Syracuse University Announced Following the “increase in COVID-19 cases in our student population” it is becoming completely online learning. And the University of Maryland Football Program announced that it would pause all team-related activities following the “high number of COVID-19 cases in the terrapin program”.

Security measures are never far away

Also With the good news about Kovid-19 vaccines, A global health official said Wednesday that it is important to keep expectations realistic. For example, preventive measures – such as masks and social distance – need to be kept for a long time.

“We hope we get more good news about vaccines, take the time to increase production to take them to all countries and then vaccinate enough people, so life goes back to Kovid days,” World Health Organization chief scientist Dr Soumya Swaminathan said during a social media live Q&A.

Modena hopes to find out later this month whether its Kovid-19 vaccine works.

“I do not think it’s going to be the same as they say,” Fossie told Financial Times correspondent Hannah Kuchler.

But a vaccine suppresses the spread of the virus rather than epidemic and infection levels.

“Then you have to be careful, because when new harmful people enter the world, they have a chance,” Fauzi said. “And because people with immunity are losing their immunity, they are more likely to come back.”

While the effectiveness of the Kovid-19 vaccine is promising, it is too early to tell how long the immunity against the virus will last.

“Traditionally, if you look back at the common cold coronaviruses and the experience we have, it’s not the virus that usually gives lifelong immunity,” Fauzi said.
