According to an internal memorandum by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the number of COVID-19 cases in the United States surged again after the traditional holiday in late November, according to an internal memorandum by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Some American medical experts pointed out that in the next two months, every American should be prepared to fall into disaster.
According to the internal memorandum of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, from the 1st to the 7th of this month, there were 13,41,309 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States, an increase of 18.8% over the previous seven days.
During the same period, 15,202 new COVID-19-related deaths were added, a surge of 50.6% over the previous week.
When the average daily death toll in these seven days is close to 2,200, the average number of new deaths per hour is 90, which means that three Americans die of COVID-19 every two minutes.
The memo also shows that in about 29% of hospitals in the United States, the use of intensive care beds has exceeded 80%.
Expert: The United States should be prepared for “disaster” in the next two months.
According to the U.S. Consumer News and Business Channel, according to the data of the COVID-19 tracking project, as of the 7th local time, a total of 102,148 COVID-19 patients in the United States were hospitalized.
Among them, on average, 43.8 COVID-19 patients are hospitalized in New Mexico, with a full rate of 103.3% of intensive care beds. Existing beds are no longer accommodated, to the point that “medical rationing” may have to be started.
Wayne Gupta, a professor at the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation of the University of Washington, said in an interview on the 7th that in fact, “medical rationing” will be extended to the rest of the United States, and every American should be prepared for “falling into disaster” in the next two months.
Gupta also cited a number of epidemic prevention measures he called common sense, including urging people not to travel by bus or plane, minimizing gatherings, not eating in restaurants and canteens, etc
