The number of confirmed cases of new crown pneumonia in the United States has increased to more than 26.21 million, with 440000 deaths. Last month (January) alone, more than 95000 people died, the highest number of deaths since the outbreak of the epidemic. Some experts pointed out that those diagnosed with new crown pneumonia still have the chance to be infected with the variant virus after recovery.
Fudge, director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases of the United States, told CNN that patients who had been infected with new coronavirus had a great chance to re infect South Africa’s variant of new coronavirus. He explained that according to South Africa’s experience, if the variant virus becomes the mainstream, even if the diagnosed person recovers, his antibody is not enough to protect him from the variant virus infection.
At present, 53 million people in the United States have been vaccinated with the first dose of the new crown vaccine, while only 5 million people have been vaccinated with the second dose. However, recently, the appointment period for the second dose has been full, causing people’s concern that they have not been vaccinated with the second dose on time.
