CNN reported on the 21st that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that in less than a month, the United States may face up to 100,000 new deaths from COVID-19.
On the 19th of this month, the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States has exceeded 400,000.
According to the overall forecast released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States may reach 508,000 by February 13.
That is to say, in less than a month, there may be about 100,000 new deaths in the United States.
Since the end of 2020, the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States has risen rapidly, and it only took 36 days for the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths to increase from 300,000 to 400,000.
In these 36 days, the average number of people in the United States died of COVID-19 every minute.
California, one of the most affected states in the United States, has more than 4,000 deaths from COVID-19 in 2021 in Los Angeles County, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The death rate of COVID-19 patients admitted to hospital in Los Angeles County in the past two months has increased to 25% from 12.5% before, and That is to say, one in four patients admitted to the hospital died.
Experts from the Los Angeles County Department of Health explained that there is no room for hospitals to receive mild patients, which means that patients who can be hospitalized are generally in serious and the probability of death is increased accordingly.
Some analysts point out that due to the lack of a unified and national strategy and the transmission of chaotic messages to the people, the “face mask battle” continues to be staged in response to the pandemic.
Under the influence of many factors, the spread of the pandemic in the United States has been accelerating, with more confirmed cases and deaths than in any other country.
Rochelle Valensky, who just took over as director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also said recently that the consequences of holiday travel and gatherings on hospitalization and mortality have not yet been seen, and that the coming weeks will be a “dark moment” in the United States.
