January 30 According to the data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on January 30, 437 Variant cases of COVID-19 have been found in the United States.
The latest COVID-19 model forecast released by the Institute of Health Statistics and Evaluation of the University of Washington shows that if the Variant novel coronavirus spreads widely in the United States and some people relax their precautions, there may be a “spring surge” in COVID-19 deaths in the United States.
On the 28th, the United States confirmed for the first time that a case of Variant novel coronavirus infection reported in South Africa was confirmed by South Africa.
The two infected people were residents of South Carolina.
They have no recent travel history and have no connection with each other. Minnesota confirmed on the 25th that it had discovered the first case of Variant novel coronavirus infection reported in Brazil in the United States.
The infected person had recently traveled to Brazil.
According to the data of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the 30th, there have been 434 cases of Variant novel coronavirus infection reported in the United Kingdom in the United States.
Model projections from the University of Washington Institute for Health Statistics and Evaluation show that the COVID-19 epidemic may worsen again in California, Florida and other places this spring; if the Variant novel coronavirus spreads widely in the United States and the population mobility of the coronavirus vaccine returns to pre-epidemic levels, it is expected in the worst case.
By May 1, the number of coronavirus deaths in the United States will reach 654,000.
The model also predicts that if the mobility of people can be reduced and people can strictly abide by social distancing regulations, the number of deaths may be reduced by about 30,000.
“It’s important to move the coronavirus vaccinations quickly, but masks remain one of the best tools to reduce the spread of the virus and prevent the worst from happening,” said Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Statistics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.
He believes that people who have been vaccinated also need to continue to comply with prevention and control regulations, because more infectious Variant coronaviruses may spread in the United States.
In order to curb the spread of the virus and reduce the mortality rate, U.S. states are now stepping up the promotion of coronavirus vaccination.
According to the data on the website of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of the 30th, about 29.6 million doses of coronavirus vaccine have been vaccinated in the United States.
According to statistics released by Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of the evening of the 30th, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States exceeded 26.07 million, and the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 439,000.
