January 11th – Since entering 2021, the epidemic situation in the United States has continued to be severe. U.S. media found that in the first 10 days of January alone, 2.2 million new coronavirus cases were added. The trend is worrying.
According to CNN, it took 90 days to reach the first 2 million coronavirus cases in the United States in 2020, but in just 10 days in January 2021, 2.2 million new coronavirus cases were added in the United States.
At present, the number of new infections, hospitalizations and deaths are increasing.
In addition, the number of deaths in the past 10 days in January also exceeded 27,000.
U.S. media said that “January may be the deadliest month since the outbreak in the United States”, and at this rate, more people will die of the coronavirus in January than in any previous month. Currently, the highest number of coronavirus deaths, in months, occurred in December 2020, at 77,431.
“We are in a very difficult situation.” “We know how to slow the spread of the virus, which requires mandatory wearing of masks, people to stay at home and avoid any indoor gatherings,” said Dr. Ashsh Jha, dean of the School of Public Health at Brown University.
However, some officials reported that many Americans are doing the opposite and gathering with relatives and friends. As a result, the health care system across the country is becoming more and more crowded.
