The US Covid-19 Cases Back On The Rise
In a new task force news conference about Coronavirus. The director of CDC, Rochelle Walensjy said that after two weeks of continuous decline, the cases as well as deaths have also risen by more than 2% in the last seven days.
As per Dr. Walensky, the recent decline in the cases have leveled off. These data reveal that the recent decline appears to be stealing.
On an average, 67200 new cases were detected every day. In addition to this, more than 2000 people are dying due to the disease. She also added that 513000 Americans have
Already died due to the disease. The data was compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The number is more than any other country in the world.
Amidst this horrifying data many states and localities are loosening the pandemic-related restrictions. This development is concerning many health professionals. As per Dr. Walensky, she is really worried about more states rolling back the exact public health measures. We have also recommended people to get protected from Covid-19.
Seventy thousand cases seemed good when we were just a few months ago. But, people need to now know clearly that at this level cases spreading may mean that we are going to lose the war.
Officials on Monday also said that the nation at present is currently administering an average wage of 1.7 million doses per day. As per the information provided by the CDC website, more than 75 million have been vaccinated so far. But, still the rate is still pretty short of the required rate and thus, it is not a good decision to allow the US to fully reopen the economy.

They also said that they are ahead of the schedule to meet the goal.
