According to the Associated Press on January 25, the number of new coronavirus cases and deaths in the United States has decreased slightly, but the overall value remains alarming.

At present, the task of fighting the novel coronavirus variant is urgent.

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that the current remission of the epidemic is the natural result of “the epidemic peaks and then remains stable” after the holiday, not the vaccine.

Fauci warned that the United States should not relax its vigilance because of the epidemic of the more infectious coronavirus variant.

So far, more than 20 states have reported cases of the novel coronavirus variant virus found in the United Kingdom, and South Africa has also found a novel coronavirus variant virus.

Fauci said the current COVID-19 vaccine remains effective for both variants, but it is “slightly weakened”.

Scientists are studying and upgrading the coronavirus vaccine.

The Associated Press reported that the distribution and vaccination process in the United States is full of chaos, and there has been a recent shortage of vaccines in many states, forcing large-scale cancellation of vaccine appointments and vaccinations everywhere.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “The City is ready to get the vaccine at a rate of 500,000 per week, but we don’t have a vaccine to match it.” Chief Taiwan reporter Liu Xu)
