Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: New Coronavirus Mutated Virus May Become Major Source of Infection in the United States

  According to Fox News, on the 15th, an official from the Utah Department of Health stated that Utah had confirmed the first case of a mutated new coronavirus infection.

So far, about 10 states in the United States have reported confirmed cases of the mutant new coronavirus, and more than 70 people infected with the mutant new coronavirus have been found.

  On the same day, a research report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that by March 2021, the mutant new coronavirus may become the main source of infection in the United States.

The model also predicts that the mutated virus may see "rapid growth" in the next few months, causing more trouble to the healthcare system.

  The head of the CDC modeling team, Michael Johansson, said that the CDC is working hard to increase testing for the mutant virus.

The medical staff of the center also admitted that there is no evidence that the mutated new coronavirus is more deadly, but the speed of transmission is alarming, which will definitely lead to more infections.

Biden promises to expand vaccine supply: 100 million doses of vaccinations will be completed within 100 days of taking office

  According to a report from the US Chinese website, on the 15th local time, US President-elect Biden proposed a plan to manage the new crown vaccine, including vaccinating more people, creating more vaccination sites and increasing vaccine supply.

He also plans to launch a public education campaign to vaccinate those who are skeptical of the new crown vaccine.

In addition, its government will also pay attention to the issue of equitable distribution of vaccines across the country.

  Biden said, "Our plan is bold and clear: provide more people with free vaccines; provide them with more places to vaccinate; mobilize more medical teams to help people; increase the supply of vaccines and distribute them as soon as possible. Go out." He also called the new crown vaccination plan promoted by the current President Trump "the worst failure so far."

  He warned that the US epidemic "will get worse before it gets better," but he firmly believes that his government can complete 100 million doses of the new crown vaccine in his "first 100 days".

  The Biden government transition team has stated that it will “encourage states to open up vaccination qualifications other than medical personnel and long-term care facility personnel, including those in important industries such as teachers, first responders, grocery store employees, and people over 65. "

  Biden also said that it will use federal funds to create new community vaccination centers across the country, and cooperate with vaccine suppliers to launch mobile vaccination clinics to provide vaccination services in areas with relatively poor medical conditions.

He also plans to provide vaccines in pharmacies and increase vaccine reserves in chain and independent pharmacies across the country.

  According to the "Washington Post", on the same day, the Biden transition team announced that Biden had selected David Kessler, the former director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to lead the "speedy action" of the US vaccine program.

According to reports, as the head of the FDA, Kessler has reduced the time required to approve drugs for the treatment of AIDS.
