Although the number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States has recently decreased in a single day, the rapid spread of COVID-19 variants is still sounding “alerts” to the United States.
According to the latest statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 699 cases of Variant strains have been reported across the United States, the vast majority of which are caused by the Variant strains of COVID-19 found in the United Kingdom.
Warrensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: As of February 7, 34 states in the United States have reported 699 cases of COVID-19 variant strains, of which 690 have been found in the United Kingdom.
So far, Florida is the state with the worst pandemic of Variant strains in the United States, with more than 200 cases.
Variant strains spread rapidly, confirmed cases in the United States may surge again
A study shows that the coronavirus variant found in the UK entered the United States through several different channels last November, is spreading rapidly and is likely to have caused large-scale community transmission.
The report warns that this is likely to cause the number of new confirmed cases in the United States to rise again in a single day. Peter Hotez, a professor at Baylor University School of Medicine, also said in an interview with CNN on the 8th that the continued spread of COVID-19 variants will hit the United States again.
In addition, since less than 1% of all coronavirus tests in the United States will be tested for COVID-19 variants at the same time, some experts believe that the real number of cases of Variant strains is much higher than the number of reported cases.
It is predicted that at the end of March, Variant will dominate in the United States.
The report also predicts that by March this year, the variant strain of the novel coronavirus found in the United Kingdom will become the dominant novel coronavirus in the United States.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: This is true. According to the forecast, the coronavirus variant found in the United Kingdom by the end of March this year is very likely to dominate the United States.
