According to the associated press report on January 25, the number of new coronavirus cases and new deaths per day in the United States has decreased slightly, but the overall number is still alarming. At present, it is urgent to fight the new coronavirus.
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases, said that the current relief of the epidemic is the natural result of “the epidemic peaked and then stabilized” after the holidays, rather than the vaccine.
Fudge warned that the United States should not relax its vigilance because of the epidemic of the more infectious new coronavirus variant. So far, more than 20 states have reported new coronavirus cases found in the UK and South Africa.
Fudge said that the current new crown vaccine is still effective for both variants, but its effectiveness is & quot; slightly weakened & quot;. Scientists are studying and upgrading new vaccines.
The Associated Press reported that the process of vaccine distribution and vaccination in the United States is full of chaos. Recently, there has been a shortage of vaccines in many states, forcing large-scale cancellation of vaccine appointment and vaccination.
Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City, said, “New York City is ready to be vaccinated at the rate of 500000 people a week, but we don’t have a matching vaccine. ”
