At present, the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States has exceeded 450,000. According to CNN on February 4, the latest forecast of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States may exceed 530,000 by the end of February.
That means more than 80,000 Americans will die from COVID-19 this month.
According to the latest projection released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States may reach 534,000 by February 27.
In addition, U.S. public health experts warn that the progress and vaccination rate of tracking COVID-19 variants infected people in the United States are still slow compared with the spread of COVID-19 variants. Experts worry that the rapid spread of viral variants will lead to a surge in infections in the United States.
Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, warned on February 3 that mutant strains will cause great trouble, and the most “dark” days in the United States are still ahead.
Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota: I think the darkest days of the epidemic are still ahead, so I say it’s because of these COVID-19 mutants.
These mutant strains are bringing us great challenges.
In addition, a new study by Imperial College of Technology shows that although the elderly are more likely to suffer from serious diseases or death in the epidemic.
But the latest study found that the largest group of coronavirus transmission in the United States last year was actually American adults between the ages of 20 and 49, and the number of infections in this group accounted for about 72.2% of the cumulative number of infections in the United States. Research institutions say that the main reason for this result is the large number of transmission within the community.
According to CNN on February 4, due to the mandatory mask order issued by the U.S. federal government for public transportation, major American airlines have also adjusted passenger announcements one after another, updated the pre-boarding and pre-take-off notices to remind passengers to abide by the mask order.
Some airlines say passengers who refuse to wear masks may be kicked off the plane and will be punished for violating federal laws.
