Although 119,000 Americans spent COVID-19 in hospitals on Christmas Day, 616,000 still traveled on holidays.
U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) spokesperson Lisa Farbstein said that on Friday and Christmas Day, 616,469 people across the country passed through airport checkpoints for inspection.
Fabstein explained: “Christmas is usually not a very busy day in air travel, but the next day or two is usually busy because people go home after the holidays.” “If you choose to travel, please cover it!”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended on Christmas Eve that due to the continuous surge in coronavirus cases, families should celebrate the holiday with their immediate family members.
The agency said on its website: “With the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths continuing to increase throughout the United States, the safest way to celebrate winter holidays is to celebrate at home with people who live with you.”
Gathering with family and friends who do not live with you can increase your chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 or flu.
The CDC issued the warning because as the coronavirus cases continue to surge, hospitals are struggling to meet the increased capacity. The Dallas Morning News reported that as of Wednesday, there were only 17 ICU beds in Dallas County.
On Christmas Day, nearly 119,000 Americans survived COVID-19 in the hospital, and 1,541 deaths were recorded.
However, according to the COVID Tracking Project, on Friday, 20 states did not provide the latest information on their numbers, which means that the true number of deaths across the country may be higher.

The state that did not provide any updates on new cases and deaths last Friday is California. After 300,000 new cases were reported last week, the epidemic has brought the medical system to a critical point.
In Los Angeles County, one person now dies from COVID-19 every 10 minutes.
CNN reported that Los Angeles County Director of Public Health, Barbara Ferrer, said in a statement: “Now, every 10 minutes, one person dies from COVID-19 in Los Angeles County.” Since many deaths are preventable, our collective focus should be on doing the right thing to save lives.”
Earlier this week, California became the first state to surpass 2 million cases, as experts still worry about a further surge in Christmas and New Year travellers.
After setting a new record of 120,151 last Friday, the overall number of hospitalizations on Friday fell to 118,948, and the 7-day average for Christmas climbed to a new high, reaching 117,029.
Last Friday, there were 124,498 new cases reported, but the COVID tracking project warned that the data has been affected by the holiday.
Across the country, more than 18.7 million Americans have been infected with the coronavirus and 330,246 people have died.
The average number of seven-day hospitalizations on Christmas Day hit a record high of 117,029, as nearly 1119,000 COVID-19 patients spent their holidays in hospitals

As the impact of Thanksgiving on the country’s outbreak is uncertain, the Centers for Disease Control once again warned against traveling during the holidays.
Although the number of travellers is still low compared to previous years, health experts still worry that the number of people before Christmas is still the highest since the pandemic began.
Farbstein said Thursday morning that 1,191,123 people were checked at national airport checkpoints on Wednesday.
“This is the highest number of checkpoints since March 16, when 1,257,823 people were screened,” Fabstein said, adding that anyone traveling this holiday should “wear a mask.”
In California, the request for residents to stay at home has become more urgent, where doctors say the state is currently suffering from a “viral tsunami.”
In the past two weeks, the state’s cases have surged by 68%, and the capacity of the ICU remains zero due to the crowded hospitals being forced to even use their lobby space to treat patients.
“In most hospitals, about half of the beds are filled with COVID patients, and all ICU beds are filled with COVID patients, and two-thirds of the patients died of suffocation due to inflammation of their lungs, Los Angeles County Health Director Christie Said Dr. Christina Ghaly.
“They are so suffocating that they can no longer breathe, and they have to get someone to lower their throat to oxygenate the organ. She said many of them will not live in 2021.

Hospitals in Los Angeles County are transferring ambulances, leaving patients unattended for several hours.
County health officials sent a memo to doctors urging them not to send patients to emergency rooms unless absolutely necessary.
There is also a severe shortage of nurses and other medical staff, and the leaders of California are reaching out to Australia and Taiwan to fill the demand for 3,000 temporary medical staff.
Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh had an allergic reaction after receiving the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine at Boston Medical Center on Christmas Eve
Although a doctor in Boston became the first person to have a serious reaction to Moderna’s vaccine last Friday, officials still hope that the launch of the vaccine will continue to improve the situation. Moderna’s vaccine has been released in the country for the first time. A week.
According to the New York Times, Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh, an expert on geriatric oncology at Boston Medical Center, said that he had a severe reaction almost immediately after the vaccination, with dizziness and rapid heartbeat.
Sadrzad knew he was allergic to shellfish.
In a statement on Friday, Boston Medical Center spokesperson David Kibbe said that Dr. Sadrzadeh “feels that he is experiencing an allergic reaction and is allowed to manage his own potty.”
‘He was taken to the emergency room for evaluation, treatment, observation and discharge. He did a great job today,” Kibbe added.
An official from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said last week that the FDA is investigating five allergic reactions that occurred after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech SE in the United States.
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) predicts a leading COVID-19 model that shows that any vaccine holdup could have a fatal impact on the American public.
The latest forecasts show that if states begin to abolish regulations on masks and social distancing, as many as 731,000 Americans may die from COVID-19 by April 1.
If the vaccine is distributed as planned, more than 33,000 lives can be saved; if the vaccine can be introduced faster, it can save 45,000 American lives.
The model currently predicts that the death toll will reach 567,195 by April 1, and authorization and vaccines will proceed as planned.
