Severe epidemic in the U.S.

The average number of infections in seven days exceeds the peak in the summer of 2020

  According to reports, due to summer travel and the accelerated spread of delta strains, the U.S. epidemic has rebounded sharply. The current number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 has risen to its peak in the summer of 2020, with more than 70,000 new cases per day, and most of the new cases come from Communities with lower vaccination rates.

  US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Valensky also said that the average number of patients with coronary disease in the United States in seven days was about 6,200, an increase of 41% over the previous seven days.

  In Florida, on the 3rd, more than 11,000 new crown patients were being hospitalized, breaking the record for the number of hospitalizations for the third consecutive day, of which about 2,400 were being treated in the intensive care unit.

But Florida Governor DeSantis reiterated that despite the increase in cases, the state will not be locked down again and individuals should be vaccinated.

Florida was one of the first states to reopen.

Vaccination rate slowed down significantly

The vaccination rate of each state is "high in the north and low in the south"

  According to data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of August 2, 70% of American adults have received at least one dose of the new crown vaccine.

US President Biden originally hoped to achieve this goal on July 4, but as the rate of vaccination slowed significantly, this goal was achieved about a month late.

  US media statistics also found that the vaccination rates of the states show a "high in the north and low in the south". The one-dose vaccination rate in Vermont in the north has reached 75.7% of the state's population, but in Mississippi in the south it is only 39.8%.

  The White House Coordinator for the Coordinator of the New Crown Epidemic, Zientz, expressed concern at the epidemic briefing meeting about the continued increase in cases of infection with the Delta strain.

"These cases are concentrated in communities with lower vaccination rates. In fact, the seven states with the lowest vaccination rates account for only 8.5% of the U.S. population, but account for more than 17% of new U.S. cases."

After encountering setbacks such as supervision and logistics

The U.S. finally provides more than 100 million doses of vaccine overseas

  On the other hand, the White House stated on the 3rd that the Biden administration has delivered more than 110 million doses of the new crown vaccine to more than 60 countries and regions.

The White House stated that the 110 million doses of vaccines are a "down payment." "Starting from the end of this month, the government will begin shipping 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine. The United States has pledged to purchase and donate them to 100 low-income countries in need."

  Previously, due to "logistical, regulatory, diplomatic and other obstacles", the progress of "delivery" in the United States with a surplus of vaccines was once delayed.

  In addition, the World Health Organization estimates that a total of 11 billion doses of vaccine are needed to reach the vaccination target of 70% of the global population.
