COVID-19 Hot Spots Offer Sign of What Could Be Ahead for the US

A devastating delta storm pushed up a COVID-19 hospital in Mountain West and caused unrest in the North, a worrying sign of what could happen this winter in the United States.

While conditions are improving in Florida, Texas, and other southern states with the worst summer temperatures, the United States is not at its peak. COVID-19 is moving north and west during winter where people enter, close windows, and breathe air.

“We’re going to see a lot of outbreaks among those who haven’t been vaccinated that will cause serious illness but it will be terrible,” Drs. Donald Milton of the School of Public Health at the University of Maryland.

In recent days, Vermont College has suspended public gatherings following Halloween-related incidents. Boston workers closed the elementary school to control the explosion. A hospital in New Mexico and Colorado was attacked.

In Michigan, the Detroit area of three counties is another place, with the hospital system reporting nearly 400 COVID-19 patients. Insurance coverage in Michigan is declining for about 25% of the population, according to a poll conducted by the same university at the University of Washington.

“Concerns about COVID, in general, have disappeared, which is a shame,” said Drs. Jennifer Morse, chief medical officer at 20 Central and Northern Michigan health departments. “I felt intimidated by going into a closed store. They are famous. It is very different. Now the atmosphere is special. “

New Mexico is completing intensive care units despite higher vaccination rates than the state. The fading barrier can work. People who were vaccinated before vaccine development could increase the number of infections, even if they still have protection from the more serious consequences of this virus.

Ali Mokdad, a professor of physiology at the University of Washington, said, “The delta and its prevention are weak: this second link has left us.” “This virus will stay with us for a long time.”

It is the most common form of delta disease in the United States, accounting for more than 99% of diagnostic tests.

No state receives adequate immunization, even when used in combination with a vaccine, to avoid the type of outbreak that is currently occurring, Mokdad said.

Based on national advice, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ regulations on Thursday gave citizens 18 and over to have access to COVID-19 promotions, another step to prevent hospitals and health workers from harming the country and delta disease.

Progress in vaccination continues, but nearly 60 million Americans by the age of 12 have not been vaccinated. This is an increase over July, when 100 million did not have a vaccine, said White House spokesman for COVID-19 Jeff Zients.

The first round is around 300,000 a day, and efforts to vaccinate children aged 5 to 11 are starting to go strong, Zients said in an interview on Wednesday.

Linsey Marr of Virginia Tech, principal investigator of the airborne spread of coronavirus, predicts that the virus will spread northward with a Twitter feed on September 15. COVID spread through the air and can accumulate in enclosed spaces without air conditioning. The calm climate means most people inside breathe the same air, Marr said.

Suppose everyone you are with is a smoker and you want to inhale as much smoke as possible, he says.

“The more you smoke for a smoker, the more you are exposed to the smoke,” says Marr. “But if you’re in an unhealthy room, the smoke will build up over time.”

Marr said he and his family who received the drug should undergo rapid tests before they leave for Christmas to check for the disease.

“It’s hard to know what will happen to this virus,” Marr said. “We thought we knew, but Delta took us by surprise. We thought a vaccine would help in this, but things are still going on. It’s hard to know what will happen.”
