The COVID-19 Pandemic in the United States is still worsening. But with the arrival of the New Year holiday, the United States has once again begun to travel in large numbers. In a report on the 20th, the U.S. media pointed out that the epidemic situation in the United States will become worse.
CNN reported on the 20th that although the United States has made some progress in vaccines, for most parts of the United States, the epidemic is getting out of control, and the situation will only get worse before every American can be vaccinated.
U.S. media pointed out that despite repeated calls by doctors, officials and health experts to avoid going out, many Americans have chosen to travel in recent days.
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration reported on the 20th local time that more than 1.073 million people passed airport security checks in the United States on the 19th, and more than 1.066 million people passed the airport security on the 18th.
According to US media reports, this is the first time since March that more than 1 million people have traveled by air for two consecutive days. Health experts worry that more holiday travel will exacerbate the epidemic and put more pressure on the health care system.
In California, the most populous state in the United States and the state with the largest cumulative confirmed cases, only about 2.1% of the available intensive care beds are available, and ambulances have to wait seven hours to send patients to the emergency room.
According to the U.S. media, large numbers of people traveling and shopping in this situation will put the front-line medical staff at greater risk.
