Source Title: mutated new coronavirus has spread in the United States. Another warship is now infected collectively
According to data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of about 11:22 Beijing time on January 30, there were more than 25.92 million confirmed cases of new crown in the United States, and more than 430000 people died of new crown. The Centers for Disease Control and prevention of the United States says the mutated virus found in South Africa has begun to spread in the community in the United States; another US warship has been infected collectively; and the distribution of vaccines in the United States is still chaotic.
CDC: a mutant virus found in South Africa has spread across the United States
Fudge reminds us that the appearance of mutated virus is a “wake-up call”;
Two confirmed cases of South Carolina infected with the mutated new coronavirus found in South Africa indicate that the mutated virus has begun to spread in communities across the United States, CDC director wallensky said on the 29th local time.
&”I think it’s a matter of concern that we know that these two people don’t know each other and they haven’t been to South Africa. Therefore, the current presumption is that the mutated virus has spread in the community. Wallensky pointed out that under the leadership of Biden government, the scope and process of virus testing have been expanded, which means that the chance of finding more mutated viruses has increased.
At the same time, wallensky also worried that when the virus mutates and produces a dominant strain, the vaccine may not work properly. She stressed that scientists have developed new vaccines based on existing vaccines, which will more effectively target these mutated viruses;.
On the other hand, on the 29th local time, fudge, director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases, said at a White House news conference that the emergence of the mutated new coronavirus is a “wake-up call.”;. &”We will continue to see the evolution of variants. We have to be flexible so that we can adjust at any time. ”
Fudge also said that it is expected that by the spring of 2021, the mutated new coronavirus will become the main epidemic strain in the United States.
Death toll continues to increase
Another destroyer had a collective infection
Novel coronavirus pneumonia in South Africa is estimated to be 654000 in May 1st, according to IHME, estimated by the University of Washington health index and assessment institute (29).
Experts say novel coronavirus pneumonia deaths in novel coronavirus pneumonia are expected to exceed 590 thousand in May 1st, if Americans can use masks and maintain social distance. But if the Americans fail to comply with these measures, the total number of deaths will increase to more than 650 thousand.
On the same day novel coronavirus pneumonia was detected in the &ldquo, Chafee &rdquo, destroyer, about 12 sailors. The confirmed patients and close contacts have been evacuated from the ship and quarantined, but the destroyer will continue its mission.
Los Angeles vaccine distribution in chaos
Is it more effective to wear two kinds of masks?
In addition, it is reported that as more and more Los Angeles residents receive the first dose of vaccine, the tight supply and online scheduling problems hinder them from completing the two dose vaccination process.
On the 28th local time, thousands of people in Los Angeles may have their vaccine appointments delayed. At the same time, many other residents have problems using the county’s online booking system.
Local government officials say many people are worried about the second dose, so call centers in the county sometimes receive thousands of calls an hour.
This uncertainty exposes persistent questions about how the county manages its shrinking vaccine supply and how to share key information with communities that urgently need answers. Residents’ anxiety levels are rising because of the additional pressure of time constraints associated with the second vaccination.
Andrew noumer, an associate professor of public health at the University of California, Irvine, said, “there’s not enough transparency.”;.
Officials across the state said vaccine distribution is expected to shrink in recent weeks. While this may change, the lack of prior notice about the number of vaccines that states and counties will receive in the future has had an impact on long-term planning.
CDC, on the other hand, is currently testing the effects of wearing two kinds of masks.
Dr. Brooks, chief medical officer of CDC coping with new crown, said on the 29th local time that there is no experimental data for testing two kinds of masks at the same time. Once there is information, it will be shared.
Brooks also stressed that the most important thing is to let as many people as possible wear masks.
