Experts said that the increase in the incidence is mainly observed in areas with a low level of vaccination.
Over the previous week, an average of 19455 new cases of COVID-19 was registered in the United States, which is 47.5 percent more than in the previous week, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The increase in the incidence was observed in 43 states last week, which indicates that the pandemic in the United States continues.
The number of hospitalizations is growing again.
Mortality, being a lagging indicator, also seems to be starting to grow. At the same time, in more than 99 percent of cases, people who have not been vaccinated die, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.
Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo of the Center for Health Protection at Johns Hopkins University said that two-thirds of the counties where there is a steady increase in new infections are in states with low vaccination rates.
“But the fact that we are seeing an increase in the incidence even in counties in states with higher vaccination rates is alarming,” she tweeted. – Any places with a low level of vaccination are at risk!”
