Increasing number of cases in multiple states rebounded sharply

  According to reports, there were about 71,000 new cases in a single day in the United States on July 29. After that, the epidemic situation gradually slowed down. By September 12, the average daily number of new cases in the United States fell to about 34,000.

  However, the average daily increase of cases in the United States in the past week has exceeded 55,000, an increase of more than 60% from mid-September.

At the same time, the number of hospitalizations across the United States is also rising.

  At present, the number of new cases in 19 states, including North Dakota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas and Indiana, has reached a record high.

  In recent months, Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Arizona, where the epidemic seems to be alleviating, have also seen an increase in cases.

On October 14, local time, the Simonhof Flower Park near Liberty City, Miami, USA, was filled with tombstone-shaped white plastic plaques to commemorate the deceased of the new crown. People's messages on the plastic plaques attracted tears.

The number of deaths across the U.S. may approach 400,000 in early February 2021

  According to real-time statistics from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of 9:24 am on October 18, Beijing time, the cumulative number of deaths in the United States has exceeded 219,000.

  According to reports, the recent increase in the number of deaths in the United States is about 700, maintaining a relatively stable state, which is still lower than the peak in summer.

From late July to mid-August, the average daily death toll in the United States was as high as about 1,000.

  However, Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said that the number of new deaths in a single day may increase.

  Researchers from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation of the University of Washington estimate that by mid-January 2021, more than 2,300 Americans will die every day, and by February 1, 2021, more than 389,000 Americans will be infected with the new crown. The virus died.

Expert: The United States has begun to break out in autumn and winter

  According to reports, previously, the United States had two waves of epidemic climaxes in spring and summer.

In view of the current situation of the epidemic, Collins said, “This is a good time for people to stop and ask themselves, what can we do to ensure that more infections are prevented?”

  He also warned that when the cold winter comes, people will spend more time indoors, which means that the infection may spread further.

  Former U.S. Food and Drug Administration Director Gottlieb also said on the 16th local time that the fall surge has begun, "I think we are in a difficult autumn and winter season."
