Recently, the number of new confirmed cases in the United States has decreased in a single day, but the continuous spread of COVID-19 variants in the United States still causes experts to worry.
On the 1st local time, Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to the Biden administration and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned that if the COVID-19 variant dominates the spread in the United States, recovered COVID-19 patients may still be at risk of re-infection, and the United States may also reappear.
The number of confirmed cases has soared.
Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: The current coronavirus variant has not yet dominated the spread in the United States, but once it “dominated” the United States, as our South African counterparts have experienced.
Even if you have COVID-19, there is still a high chance of getting infected again.
According to CNN, the coronavirus variant species found in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil have been found in the United States.
Among them, the coronavirus variant found in the United Kingdom has been found in 32 states in the United States, bringing the number of infections to 467.
Many medical experts and institutions have warned about the danger of spreading COVID-19 variants.
The spread of viral variants may cause a surge in the number of cases in spring.
The prediction results of the COVID-19 model released by the Institute of Health Statistics and Evaluation of the University of Washington in the United States show that if the COVID-19 variant strain is widely spread everywhere, there will be a “spring surge” in COVID-19 deaths in the United States.
Osterholm, a well-known infectious disease expert in the United States, also warned that the United States may face a surge in new confirmed cases again under the influence of factors such as coronavirus variants, and he also described the risk as a “force 5 hurricane”.
Boston Medical Center expert Badria made a similar prediction in an interview with the American media.
Boston Medical Center expert Badelia: You are likely to see more new confirmed cases in February, which will directly lead to more hospitalizations and deaths in March.
