Coronavirus on the rise in almost half the states of America.
All across the United States of America, lockdowns are being rolled back by the states. But this in no way implies that the Coronavirus pandemic has finished with America. Coronavirus cases are on the rise in almost half of the American states. This is definitely a huge worry for America, as more and more people are starting to get back to work and more people would be getting out in the summer.
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley said:
“The findings come as leaders worldwide struggle to balance the enormous and highly visible economic costs of emergency health measures against their public health benefits, which are difficult to see. The study did not estimate how many lives might have been saved by the policies because, with so many infections, fatality rates would be much higher than anything observed to date.”
After the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, the Governor of North Carolina has stated that he is rethinking plans that have been made about reopening businesses and schools. Texas is now witnessing the hospitalization of Coronavirus cases, the likes of which it has not encountered previously. Hospitals in Arizona have been informed that they should get ready to prepare for the worst.
What is the reason for the spike in Novel Coronavirus cases in America? According to experts, there are a number of reasons for this, inclusive of the lifting of stay at home orders, the lifting of closure of businesses and schools and the lifting of various other restrictions that had been put in place in America, in order to try and stop the spread of Coronavirus.
Another big reason for the spread of the New Coronavirus, that is now starting to take place all the more in America, is that the killer virus, has now started to fan out.
Dr Jay Butler, who oversees Coronavirus response work at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says:
“It is a disaster that spreads. It’s not like there’s an entire continental seismic shift and everyone feels the shaking all at once.”
In North Carolina, the number of cases is on the rise. Testing has increased in the past couple of weeks, as has the number of cases being reported to be positive.
Mandy Cohen, North Carolina’s top health official states:
“These trends moving in the wrong direction is a signal we need to take very seriously.”
Arizona’s stay-at-home order was put to an end by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. All restrictions on businesses were eased. Arizona residents who had been stuck in their homes for six weeks rushed to bar districts in the Phoenix-area, totally ignoring social distancing guidelines. Arizona started to see a spike in new Coronavirus cases and around 10 days later, hospitalizations.
Will Humble, Executive Director of the Arizona Public Health Association said:
“It seems pretty clear to me that what we’re seeing is directly related to the end of the stay-at-home order.”
In Alabama, there have been outbreaks in poultry plants and nursing homes. This has resulted in a huge spike in the number of Novel Coronavirus cases. Scott Harris, State Health Officer, said that Montgomery, the capital, has become an emerging hot spot.
Scott Harris says:
“I think reopening the economy gave a lot of people the wrong impression … that, ‘Hey everything is fine. Let’s go back to normal. Clearly, it is not that way. Really, now more than ever we need people to stay 6 feet apart, wear face coverings and wash their hands.”
Dr. David Thrasher, Director of respiratory therapy at Jackson Hospital, said:
“I can assure you that Montgomery’s cases are not going down, and if our community does not take this seriously, the virus will continue to spread, and at some point, our medical capacity will reach its limit.”
According to data, there are now over 100,000 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases being seen each day, all over the globe.
Experts are now worried about what will happen in America, over the next few weeks, as a result of the growing number of Coronavirus cases, all over the country.
