As the United States continues to increase the pace of vaccination activities, and now an average of more than 3 million vaccines are injected every day, people in the most vulnerable age group are leading the trend. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 65% of Americans aged 65 years and older have received at least one vaccine, and more than half have received the full course of vaccination.
Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a call to reporters on Monday that the number of emergency department visits and hospitalizations related to people 65 and older is declining.
These trends are “good news about vaccination capacity,”
U.S. Covid Case
Due to the decline in the number of daily cases on Easter Sunday, when many states did not report coronavirus data, Johns Hopkins University trackers showed that the United States recorded about 79,000 new Covid-19 cases on Monday. Currently, the average number of new cases per day for seven days is 64,600, which is higher than the lowest point of approximately 53,000 cases per day in the country at the end of March, but shows some signs of stabilization.
Rochelle Varensky, director of the CDC, told members of the media at a White House press conference on Monday that the demographics of people who are infected with the virus are changing.
Varensky said: “As data trends have shown that the number of cases across the country is increasing, and we see this happening mainly among young people.”
She added that many outbreaks among young people are related to youth sports and extracurricular activities. Varensky said that the use of a rhythm test strategy can prevent the risk of outbreak groups.
Varensky said that changing demographics indicate that vaccines are having an impact. He mentioned that emergency department visits and hospitalizations related to people 65 and older have declined. Most people in this age group have been vaccinated at least once.
Covid death in the U.S.
According to data from Hopkins University, there are nearly 800 deaths from the new coronavirus every day for an average of 7 days, which is far below the winter peak in the United States.
Valensky said that little is known about whether the new virus variants are more deadly.
She said: “With these variants, we can still see an increase in its transmission. We don’t know that its morbidity and mortality have increased.” “We still have to be highly vigilant about these variants.”
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States has an average of seven days of vaccination every day, and more than 3 million Covid-19 vaccine injections per day.
After injecting more than 3 million doses of the vaccine for four consecutive days, Monday’s report indicated that 2.1 million doses have been injected. White House Covid-19 data director Cyrus Shahphar wrote in a tweet that although Monday’s numbers largely reflect the vaccination situation during the weekend and therefore usually show lower numbers, Easter Sunday also caused data reports to be lower. Reasons for normal levels.
Proportion of U.S. vaccinated population
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly one-third of the US population has at least one shot of the Covid-19 vaccine, and 18.8% of Americans have been fully vaccinated.
