Johns Hopkins University data released Thursday shows that Covid-19 cases have increased at least tenfold in at least 21 states, confirming that the fight against the pandemic isn’t over yet.
In the State of Michigan, Hospitals are struggling to deal with the increasing number of new Covid-19 cases every day. The State and local health officials are rolling out stricter precautionary measures to prevent another wave. Health officials are all eyes out for people to get vaccinated as soon as possible to prevent an uncontrollable spread of the virus. According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and a CNN Analysis indicates that most U.S states could vaccinate all willing adults by June among the 30% who already have been vaccinated.
Governor Jay Inslee told reporters his state’s infection numbers have turned upwards again this week as “we have knocked down this virus three times, but we need to knock it down a fourth time.”
Researchers at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation of the University of Washington believe little progress is being made in preventing the spread of the Disease which would lead to an increasing number of future deaths. Weighing the result, Researchers state that letting the thread lose over restrictions and precautionary measures could lead the virus to spread again. People should not drop the use of masks, changing this habit can increase the risk of people catching the virus again, resulting in another wave.
Due to the vast availability of Covid-19 vaccines around the U.S, Mortalities have come under control despite the cases of infected people have risen. The vaccine prevents the virus from taking serious health related hits to carriers. People who get vaccinated can prevent serious health issues caused by the virus and eventually recover at a better pace over those who aren’t vaccinated. Emory University executive associate dean of medicine Dr. Carlos del Rio stated that “ The vaccines have saved thousands of lives already, We’ve seen mortality in the US decline despite cases going up, and that’s because we’re vaccinating people.” The vaccine cannot fully prevent all variations of Covid-19, though, People who are vaccinated are somewhat safe from the virus and won’t catch it as easily as people who aren’t, Once a vast majority of population has been vaccinated and a person in a community develops the disease, It will be hard for the disease to spread as the community around the carrier will mostly be vaccinated and have somewhat of a protection bubble around them.
What can we do to prevent infection?
Researchers and Doctors have urged governments to not lift Covid-19 implications. They have also said to the public to avoid gatherings, Wear masks, Use sanitizers and get vaccinated. People have been seen not taking the Pandemic seriously now-a-days and avoiding the use of masks. Masks should be made obligatory again and Covid-19 restrictions should not be lifted so soon as the virus is seemingly growing again. As vaccines are not available currently in most parts of the world, People who aren’t introduced to the vaccine yet are pleased to follow all safety guidelines, Wear masks, Use Hand Sanitizers briefly and as soon as the vaccine is brought, Get vaccinated as soon as possible.
