According to the New York Times website on January 23, 25 million new crown cases have been reported in the United States. Experts say that although this figure is incredible, it still greatly underestimates the real number of people infected in the United States, and it is far from reflecting the extent to which the United States has lost control of the spread of the new coronavirus.
According to the report, the official statistics are equivalent to about one out of every 13 people in the United States, accounting for 7.6% of the total population.
“The 25 million cases reflect a tragedy on an incredible scale,” said Katherine rivers, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of public health, according to the report. &rdquo, she said covid-19 is one of the worst public health crises in history.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia is also reported to be the death toll in the United States, and more than 414 thousand people died of new crown pneumonia. This is equivalent to about one death in every 800 people.
According to the report, since the first case was reported in the United States in January last year, it took more than nine months for the United States to reach 10 million cases. The milestone of 10 million cases occurred on November 8. By the last day of 2020, there will be another 10 million new cases in the United States in just seven weeks.
According to the report, it took about three weeks to reach 25 million cases. In early January, it first reached the peak of 300000 cases per day, and then dropped slightly. The hospitalization rate peaked then, and then declined: according to the new coronavirus tracking program, the latest number of 116264 new coronavirus inpatients is the lowest since December 21 last year.
