Lansing, Michigan —Michigan has become the newest coronavirus epicenter in the United States, but this is a mystery.
Scott Niswonger said: “I don’t know what’s going on. Michigan is just one of the worst-hit areas.”
Dr. Meredith Hill, director of the emergency department at Sparrow Hospital, said the increase was even greater compared to the previous two weeks. She said: “I think there is obviously more community outreach now.”
Niswonger, a COVID-19 patient, said that his son may have been infected in a daycare center. Since Friday, he has been in Lansing̵
Niswonger said: “All of us have been tested and all of us have returned to a positive state and have been downhill since then.” “It feels like a person, a 500-pound guy sitting on my chest. I can’t push him down.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that the latest peak of COVID-19 cases across the country is. One theory: the possible connection with the school’s reopening and after-school sports activities.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “We have learned that many outbreaks of young people are related to youth sports and extracurricular activities. According to the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these activities should be restricted.”
The B.1.1.7 variant that originated in the United Kingdom has also seen a surge and is now considered to be one-third of all cases in the United States
Valensky said: “We know that B.1.1.7 is more transmissible, with a transmission rate of 50-100%. Is it more spread in populations of different ages that we have not yet reached,”.
However, there is also good news across the country. Four million vaccinations were reported on Saturday. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 23% of American adults have received a full vaccination, while 40% have received at least one dose.
As of Monday in Michigan, anyone 16 years of age or older can get the vaccine, expanding eligibility along with 27 other states.
Hill said: “Because the vaccine has come out, you are very excited, it is a bit frustrating to see that the vaccine has spread more than the vaccine.” “We are just trying to support each other and do our best to stay positive.”
