Anthony Fassi, the White House’s chief adviser on the fight against the epidemic, told NPR, a public radio station, “we now see a sharp rise.” He commented on the data collected by New York Times.
The country recorded 214,499 new cases on Sunday, 83 percent higher than the 14-day average. The United States is approaching the daily record of 251,232 positive cases set in January 2021. The average number of deaths in the last fourteen days has increased slightly (+3 percent) to 1,328. In New York, the number of children admitted to hospital with Govt-19 disease has also increased, health officials said.
The outcome of the explosion is very difficult to predict, Fassi said. “As we have seen in other countries, such as South Africa, we expect a recession to follow.”
In the country where the omigran variant was first discovered, the number of infections has been declining since the outbreak. Fauci said it may be due to overdose because the variant has reached all vulnerable people, such as those who have not been vaccinated. In the United States, many more are not vaccinated.
