On the 4th in the United States, the cumulative number of people who died from infection with the new coronavirus exceeded 900,000.

Although the number of infected people is declining, the number of people hospitalized and dying remains high.

According to a summary by Johns Hopkins University, the cumulative number of people who died from infection with the new coronavirus in the United States exceeded 900,000 on the 4th.



The death toll exceeded 800,000 in mid-December last year when the Omicron strain began to expand, but in just over a month and a half, another 100,000 died.



In the United States, more than 1 million infected people were reported daily, but as of the 3rd of this month, the average number of infected people per day has decreased to about 384,000 per week. It has become a trend.



However, as the number of infected people increases, the number of people who become seriously ill also increases, and the number of people who are hospitalized with the new coronavirus is about 120,000, and the average number of deaths per week is about 2,400. It is still at a high level.



The CDC = Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that by the 26th of this month, the cumulative death toll could increase from 930,000 to 960,000.



The CDC continues to call for vaccinations and boosters to increase efficacy, and calls for continued infection control measures such as wearing indoor masks and avoiding large gatherings.
