On Wednesday, Johns Hopkins University reported at least 1,893 U.S. deaths from the virus – the highest daily death toll in the country since the beginning of May.
Already, more than 241,700 have died. As the virus continues to run unchecked within American communities, that number will continue to rise.
New reports show that the epidemic is on the rise as things approach a bad holiday season.
Reports warn of ‘the most widespread spread experienced to date’
Over the next several weeks conditions for Philadelphia policy laboratory projects in the West Coast, northeastern and mid-Atlantic states will worsen.
Hospital admissions, ICU admissions and ventilator use are on the rise in every state, the lab said.
“In every Midwestern state, COVID-19 patients occupy more than 25% of ICU beds,” it said.
These findings echo the warnings of many leading health officials who have urged Americans to lean on safety measures such as masks and social distance.
An important holiday
But experts are worried that their warnings may fall on deaf ears as some Americans prepare for the Thanksgiving holidays – where large family and friends’ gatherings could help increase infection numbers even higher.
“For those who do, outdoor events are safer than indoor ones, and the remoteness of the consciences of aging vulnerable individuals from the rest of the family is important,” it said. “But more important than that is the commitment to isolation before the family visits.”
During the holidays many college students return home to thank their family and unknowingly bring the virus back with them. College campuses in 50 states have reported Govt-19 cases since the outbreak, and companies across the United States continue to implement new measures amid a resurgence of epidemics.
Security measures do not deviate at any time
“We hope to get more good news about vaccines. It will take time for all countries to measure production to get them, and then enough people can be vaccinated, so life goes on before the deadline,” said Dr. Samia Swaminathan, chief scientist at the World Health Organization. Said during the show.
Even if a vaccine comes in, people may need booster shots in the future, Dr. Anthony Fucci said Wednesday.
“I do not think this is the same thing as they say,” Fowzie told Financial Times reporter Hannah Kuchler.
But a vaccine can suppress the spread of the virus beneath infections and infections.
“Then you have to be careful, because when new vulnerable people cooperate globally, they will be more vulnerable,” Fucci said. “And those who are immune will lose their immunity and they will be affected again.”
Although the effectiveness of the Covit-19 vaccine being developed is promising, it remains to be seen how long the immunity against the virus will last.
“Traditionally common cold corona viruses and if you look back at the experience we had, this is not a virus that usually gives lifelong immunity,” Fucci added.
