Covid-19 cases continue to rise throughout the country, and millions of Americans remain unvaccinated, so this Thanksgiving will be drastically different from the last one but still loaded with risk.
There Has Been A Rise In Number Of Covid Instances As Thanksgiving
At this point last year, the daily case rate in the United States was around half of what it is now. There has been a 9 percent rise in the daily incidence of new Covid-19 cases in the last week alone.
According to the most recent statistics, cases declined quickly after the summer boom but have now rebounded to levels last seen in August. Michigan has the largest number of cases per capita of any state, with Minnesota not far behind, and a third of all new cases are recorded in Midwestern states.
Cases climbed by at least 10% in more than half of the states over the previous week, according to JHU figures. According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), “not unexpected” is the recent increase in cases because people are spending more time indoors during the cold-weather season, and their immunity is weakening, making them more susceptible to illnesses such as the common cold.
According to Fauci, there are a vast number of viruses in circulation. Since many individuals remain unvaccinated, this creates a “dynamic of virus” in the population that is both hazardous for those who have not been vaccinated and spills over into the vaccinated since no vaccine is completely effective.
According to Fauci’s announcement on Sunday night, unvaccinated people are now the “primary source” of coronavirus illnesses in the United States.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are around 81 million people in the United States who have not had their first vaccination. This is more than a quarter of the population.
There is a much-increased risk of hospitalization or death for those who are not entirely protected against contracting Covid-19 than those who are. Covid-19 testing was six times more common in unvaccinated individuals than it was in fully vaccinated people, according to the most current CDC figures. In comparison, deaths from Covid-19 were fourteen times more common in fully vaccinated people.
According to Fauci, vaccinated families may enjoy the holidays without wearing masks. As long as you have your immunizations, you may enjoy the holidays with comfort. Then, he added, “And if you aren’t, please be careful.”
According to new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people who completed their first immunization series at least six months ago are now eligible for a second dose of the vaccine, according to new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of those eligible for a booster shot hasn’t had one.
The number of Covid-19 hospitalizations has risen as a result of an increase in incidents. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, more than 50,000 people in the United States are now being treated in hospitals for Covid-19.
More than one in seven critical care beds are filled by patients infected with the Covid-19 virus, accounting for three-quarters of the total.
