According to a comprehensive report from China News Service, January 25, according to data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of 6:30 on January 25, Beijing time, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States exceeded 25 million. 418,000 people died from the new crown.

  Currently, the number of confirmed and dead cases in the United States is still the largest in the world.

With the increase in hospitalized patients, hospitals in many parts of the United States are also facing the danger of nearly exhausting medical resources.

On January 13, 2021 local time, Anaheim, California, and Orange County, California, the government announced that the government has placed a large temporary COVID-19 vaccination site in the local Disneyland Resort, located in the southeast of the park.

ICU is almost exhausted in areas where 40% of the U.S. population lives

  According to the report, due to the surge in the number of hospitalized patients of the new crown, the space and medical supplies of hundreds of intensive care units in the United States are almost exhausted, and the United States is competing to hire temporary nurses from other places at high prices. Many such hospitals are concentrated in the southern and western United States .

  The Associated Press analysis of federal hospital data shows that since November 2020, the proportion of hospitals close to the tipping point has doubled.

Today, more than 40% of Americans live in areas where ICU space is almost exhausted, and only 15% of the beds are available.

  In New Mexico, a hospital system spent millions of dollars recruiting 300 temporary nurses from outside the state to care for a surge in ICU patients.

  In Los Angeles, some medical centers have encountered a shortage of oxygen cylinders that can be taken home, which means that some patients who could have gone home to recuperate have to stay in the hospital for longer periods of time, occupying already limited beds.

On January 1, local time, citizens of San Francisco, California, USA, relaxing in a park.


number of new crown deaths

before May

or nearly 570,000

  At the same time, the number of deaths in the United States is still rising, with a total of 418,982 deaths.

According to the New York Times, one in every 800 people in the United States will die from the new crown.

  In addition, the University of Washington’s model predicts that by May 1, 569,000 people in the United States will die from the new coronavirus.

  The model also predicts that by then 157 million people in the United States will be vaccinated. Assuming that the vaccine has an effective rate of at least 50%, this means that 36% of the United States will be immunized.

  However, the researchers pointed out that this does not guarantee that the United States will not encounter the new crown epidemic again in the next winter, "because a quarter of Americans said they will not be vaccinated, and another quarter said they are not sure."

  This prediction does not take into account the potential spread of mutant viruses found in the United Kingdom and South Africa. "If they spread widely in the United States, they may extend the wave of autumn and winter to the end of spring."
