January 26th according to the data of Johns Hopkins University in the United States, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States exceeded 25.25 million, and more than 420,000 people have died of the novel coronavirus.
About one person dies every 30 seconds
January may be the “deadliest” month of the pandemic.
Confirmed and fatalities are on the rise in the United States. The data shows that the average number of new confirmed cases and deaths reported daily in the United States in January is higher than in any other month.
So far in January, at least 73,259 people have died of the novel coronavirus in the United States. This means that about one person will die every 30 seconds.
U.S. media pointed out that this will make January the “deadliest” month of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
On the 25th local time, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, reflected on “why the United States has been hit so hard by the coronavirus pandemic”, saying that the transmission of mixed information, division and federal institutions “have cost us a heavy price.”
Fauci added that “large” differences in the United States, such as public health issues such as wearing masks, have become political issues.
In addition, he said, “We need to establish good cooperation between the federal government and the state governments, but this is what we don’t have.”
In addition, Jeffrey Shaman, an epidemiologist at Columbia University in the United States, estimates that more than 100 million people may have been infected with the novel coronavirus in the United States, which is far higher than the official announcement of more than 25 million.
The university’s latest model also shows that because the outbreak has spread uncontrolledly in the U.S. for a long time, even if millions of Americans have been vaccinated, the spread of the pandemic cannot be curbed in the short term.
Variant Coronavirus continues to spread
Biden will sign a travel ban
On the other hand, the continuous spread of Variant COVID-19 in the United States has caused concern.
Health officials in Nevada said on the 25th that the first case of Variant virus reported by the United Kingdom was found in Nevada.
On the same day, health officials in Michigan said that there are currently at least 17 cases of Variant virus reported by the United Kingdom in Michigan.
Michigan residents should be actively tested for the coronavirus and vaccinated, state officials have called on.
In addition, Minnesota officials reported that they found a new Variant novel coronavirus called P.1 in the United States for the first time from a traveler from Brazil, which worried health officials.
P.1 is reportedly one of the Variant viruses that CDC officials are paying close attention to.
It is the most common Variant virus of the large number of cases found in the Amazon region of Brazil.
But there is no evidence that it can cause more serious diseases.
According to the report, the White House announced on the 25th that President Biden will sign administrative measures to restore travel restrictions on Brazil and 26 other open-border European countries such as Ireland and the United Kingdom.
A White House press spokesman also confirmed that South Africa will also be on the travel restriction list.
