new York.-The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday that a highly infectious coronavirus mutation first discovered in the UK has become the most common new source of infection in the United States. Warns that the fourth wave of viruses may appear.
Federal health officials stated in January that variant B.1.1.7 (which began to appear in the UK in December and has been hitting Europe since then) could become the main source of coronavirus infections in the United States, leading to a heartbreaking increase in cases And dying.
Since the peak in January, the number of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths has declined, and after the plateau period, new infections have increased. According to the New York Times database, further progress in reducing new cases has stalled, hospitalization has stabilized, and an average of about 800 people continue to die every day.
As of Tuesday, there were an average of nearly 65,000 new cases per day, mainly in the metropolitan area of Michigan and the New York City area. Compared with two weeks ago, this is an increase of 19%.
The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, warned last week that she felt “due fortune is coming.” 52 of the agency’s 64 jurisdictions, including states, some major cities and regions, are now reporting “interest.” Including B.1.1.7.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this variant is more common in Michigan, Florida, Colorado, California, Minnesota, and Massachusetts. Researchers say that a false sense of security can lead to premature restrictions.
