US research institutions: mutation of new coronavirus or death cases in the US

Xinhua news agency, Washington, January 30 (reporter Tan Jingjing) – according to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and prevention on January 30, 437 cases of mutated new coronavirus infection have been found in the United States. The latest COVID-19 model prediction results released by the Institute of health statistics and evaluation of University of Washington show that if the variation of COVID-19 is widely spread in the United States and some people relax and guard against, the new US crown death case will probably have a “spring surge”.

The United States confirmed for the first time on the 28th the discovery of South Africa reported cases of mutated new coronavirus infection, two people infected with South Carolina residents. They don’t have a recent travel history, they’re not connected to each other. Minnesota confirmed the discovery of the first case of mutated new coronavirus infection reported in Brazil in the United States on the 25th. The infected person recently traveled to Brazil. According to CDC data on the 30th, 434 cases of mutated new coronavirus infection have been reported in the United States.

The model prediction of the Institute of health statistics and assessment of University of Washington shows that this spring, COVID-19 may deteriorate again in California and Florida. If the variant COVID-19 is widely spread in the United States, the population mobility of the new crown vaccine is restored to the pre epidemic level. In the worst case, it is estimated that the new US crown death will reach 65.4 in May 1st. Ten thousand cases. The model also predicts that if people’s mobility can be reduced and people can strictly abide by the rules of keeping social distance, the number of deaths may be reduced by about 30000.

Christopher Murray, director of the Institute of health statistics and evaluation at the University of Washington, said it was important to quickly promote the new crown vaccination, but the mask was still one of the best tools to reduce the transmission rate of the virus and prevent the worst results. He believes that vaccinated people also need to continue to comply with the prevention and control regulations, because there may be more infectious mutant new coronavirus in the United States.

In order to curb the spread of the virus and reduce the mortality rate, states in the United States are stepping up the promotion of new crown vaccination. According to CDC website data, as of the 30th, the United States had received about 29.6 million doses of new crown vaccine.

According to statistics released by Johns Hopkins University, as of the evening of the 30th EDT, there were more than 26.07 million newly diagnosed cases and 439000 deaths in the United States.
