Daily Cases Rise Against 100K During the Pandemic Period in the USA! The Number of Coronavirus Dead Increases!
According to the White House statement, 50 percent of the population in the United States has been fully vaccinated. However, the Delta variant of the Coronavirus, which continues to spread rapidly in the country, has again increased the daily average number of cases above the threshold of 100 thousand.
In June, the average number of new Coronavirus cases per day in America was around 11 thousand. This figure is currently 107 thousand 143. Increases are recorded especially in regions where the vaccination rate is lower.
As of the beginning of the pandemic, it took about 9 months for the daily average number of new cases to exceed 100 thousand, and this average reached its peak in January 2021 in the country, seeing 250 thousand. However, it is a concern that the average of new cases, which was 11 thousand in June, reached 100 thousand again in just 6 weeks.
The fact that this increase was recorded at a time when 70 percent of the adult population in the country received at least one dose and 50 percent of the total population received a full dose raises concerns about the effect of the Delta variant.
According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, the average daily death toll based on seven days is also on the rise. As of Friday, August 6, the average daily death toll from the Coronavirus in the United States rose to 500. The average daily death toll for the previous two weeks was around 270.
Experts underline that the virus is spreading more especially in the southern states where the vaccination rate is the lowest.
In the southern states, where the rate of anti-vaccine is higher, hospitalizations due to the virus have also increased.
“Half of Americans get the full dose”
In America, one of the countries most affected by the pandemic, half of the population received the full dose of the Corona virus vaccine. The statement on the subject came from the White House.
Cyrus Shahpar, the White House's director responsible for Coronavirus data management, in his message shared on Twitter yesterday, "Today it has been recorded that 821 thousand doses have been applied. These include 565,000 new vaccine recipients. The 7-day average of those newly vaccinated increased by 11 percent compared to the previous week and by 44 percent compared to the last two weeks. 50 percent of Americans are now fully vaccinated. Keep going!" used the phrases.
Johnson & Johnson warning from EMA
On the other hand, before Shahpar's message, the European Union Medicines Administration (EMA) warned about the Coronavirus vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson company, whose headquarters is in America. The EMA's warning called for a mandatory medical warning of possible side effects from the vaccine.
EMA officials drew attention to dizziness and tinnitus, as well as blood clots that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can cause.
On the other hand, Johns Hopkins University Corona Virus Research Center also warned that the Coronavirus continues to spread rapidly again, especially recently due to the Delta variant.
The number of deaths worldwide has exceeded 4 million 200 thousand due to the Coronavirus, which was first detected in Wuhan, China about 20 months ago and caused a pandemic. The total number of confirmed cases is more than 200 million.
The United States, where more than 35 million cases have been recorded, is one of the countries most affected by the pandemic, followed by India, Brazil, France, and Russia.
