New Kovid-19 diagnosis and hospitalization continue to increase rapidly in the US, with the worst outbreaks of the entire pandemic, trailing deaths.
Experts say the federal government, led by Lame Duck President Donald Trump, has begun “vaccination”, which is weeks away from the initial approval of the vaccination.
Dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, Drs. Ashish K Jha told NBC on Tuesday, “We should not go to this position. “We are 10 months into this epidemic, everyone knew it was coming, and again our federal government had not prepared in the last few months.
“It is decided to check it out completely.”
According to Johns Hopkins University, 166,045 cases were reported in the US on Monday with 995 deaths. It was the 14th day in a row with over 100,000 cases.
The latest increase comes ahead of one of the most important holidays in the American calendar, thanks to what experts have repeatedly warned that there may be a “chain reaction” of super-spreader events as families celebrate indoors.
Experts have said that Americans should wear masks, avoid social distance, indoor ceremonies and do not gather members of different homes together. Jha said his own family had canceled traditional thanksgiving plans, which usually include his elderly parents.
“We are so close to a vaccine rollout, this is not the time to start a bad alternative,” he said.
According to the Kovid tracking project, the US has recorded an average of 150,000 cases in the last seven days. During the peak of summer in the southern and western states, positive tests reached about 70,000 a day.
Hospitalization has also reached an all-time high. There are currently more than 73,000 American hospitalizations, compared to about 60,000 in summer peaks. The epidemic has also reached a wider area, causing a current nursing shortage.
Deaths are expected to increase. They are considered “lagging indicators”, as people often take several weeks to die after contracting Kovid.
In the north-eastern states in the spring, the worst mortality rate from Kovid-19 occurred at the onset of the epidemic. The hospitals were drowned, killing more than 2,000 people per day. Today, more than 1,000 are dying a day and the number is increasing.
The governor and mayor are taking measures to curb the epidemic, but the restrictions are different from those imposed on board this spring.
In Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, the Democratic governor, banned restaurants, casinos, sports events, gyms, and individual classes for high school and college students. However, young children are still in school, with an acceptance that they are both less likely to spread the disease, and need to maintain childcare.
“You don’t need a national lockdown that you need to target, efforts focused on things that we know are actually spreading the disease,” Jha said. “It is good to see some states doing this, and I wish other states would follow this quickly.”
A vaccine rollout is increasing by about an inch. Pfizer / BioNotech and Modern have announced preliminary data that showed their vaccines could be more than 90% effective. This is far better than the initial expectations of experts.
However, advisors for presidential election Joe Biden have insisted that the data should be analyzed independently before vaccine approval. In addition, the two promising vaccines are the most logically difficult to deliver, as they require extreme cold storage.
The former head of the US Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, Drs. “We still have a lot of work to do to make sure that these vaccines are still available to all Americans,” said Rick Bright.
Bright became a whistleblower during the Trump administration, and has since been appointed to Biden’s Coronovirus Advisory Board.
“It is important that the new team has all the information of the existing team,” he said.
“Life is at stake here.”
