Until September, the daily number of cases was declining, as the country is rebounding from the high tide of summer.
But the infection roared in an unprecedented way.
According to data from Johns Hopkins University, Wednesday recorded the highest total number of daily infections in the history of the United States (over 143,000), while the new recorded average has 7 days per day (over 127,000).
This average is more than 3.5 times lower than the summer high of $34,198 on September 12.
Moreover, the number is much higher than the 7-day peak in summer, which was approximately 67,100 on July 22.
However, due to the cold weather, dangerous indoor gatherings may result, and there is no vaccine available at the moment, experts warn that there is still room for daily infections to grow.
Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN on Monday: “If there are more than 200,000 new cases appearing every day in the next few weeks, it will not make me Surprised.”
Some health experts say that hospitalization can more accurately measure the severity of the pandemic-although the rising number of cases is a warning sign because the patient’s hospitalization can proceed well after diagnosis.
According to the COVID Tracking Project, as of early Thursday, the country’s test-positive rate in 7 days averaged 8.7%.
This is higher than the highest seven-day average (approximately 7.9%) in the summer in mid-July.
According to reports, there are now more Covid-19 patients in American hospitals than at any time before the pandemic.
According to the COVID Tracking Project, about 65,300 coronavirus patients were in these facilities on Wednesday.
This is more than double the amount since September 20, when the country was at a post-summer low of 28,608.
It exceeded the summer peak of 59,718 on July 23 and the spring peak of 59,940 on April 15.
The article reads: “These hospitalizations prove that the current surge in Covid-19 cases is not only the result of screening asymptomatic people. On the contrary, the cases we are testing are the main indicator that many people are seriously ill.”
Seventeen states reported Covid-19 hospitalization records on Tuesday: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio States, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, the tracking project said.
Over time, the number of hospitalizations may become more accurate-the COVID Tracking Project states that Florida will not report hospitalizations until July 10.
The country’s recently announced Covid-19 daily death toll has not reached record levels, but it is still rising.
Since the summer, the average daily death toll this week exceeded 1,000 for the first time this week.
Johns Hopkins (Johns Hopkins) data showed that Wednesday the average was higher than 1,130, the highest level since August 1.
On Wednesday alone, more than 2,000 deaths were reported. The data may reflect a new high since May, although Georgia’s statistics may be on the high side, which may include a backlog of deaths.
This reminds people of records at the beginning of the pandemic, when more than 2,000 deaths were reported every day in April. On April 24, the highest daily average of the week was 2,241.
But as hospitalization breaks records, the daily mortality rate may rise further.
