COVID-19 data is an unreliable warning of the spread of contagion still in American health, and could wreak havoc in northern states in the future.
In fact, the U.S. wave of Covid-19 has made hospitals worse in some states, with more severe cases than reported in many countries.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 15 states have more recognized or suspected intensive care beds than those with COVID-19 in the past year. In Colorado, Minnesota and Michigan, 41%, 37% and 34% of intensive care facilities were occupied by Covid-19 patients, respectively.
The increase means there will be less hospital space for people with other life-threatening illnesses. “A lot of doctors have reached the beginning,” said Ali Mokdad, a professor at the University of Washington Institute for Health Measurement and Evaluation. “It is not easy to see deaths every day in the emergency room, in intensive care because they are not vaccinated.”
This information is an unreliable warning about the potential for the epidemic to spread to health care in the United States and could lead to further problems in the Midwest and northern states, where patients increased in the weeks that followed. the Rocky Mountains.
Despite widespread vaccination, the rapid spread of the delta virus has been shown to locate those most at risk in the community. During this time, most states have returned to pre-contagion lifestyles.
The state of Michigan, which has the highest single-person incidence in the country, encourages people to get vaccinated and wear masks. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services released the face-to-face statement on November 19. However, President Gretchen Whitmer had no more plans. has issued new restrictions on public gatherings, spokesman Bobby Leddy said.
This increase begs the question of when America can turn the page on the spread. Pfizer Inc. The new Covid-19 will help like any other plumbing treatment. At the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore last week, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates predicted that a combination of vaccines and natural remedies and new oral treatments across the world would be possible, affected like the flu. by mid-2022. I did it. Incredible reversal if so.
count the dead
The United States has reported on average more than 1,000 deaths from COVID-19 per day for more than three months. An increase in mortality is often followed by infectious disease.
At the moment, it’s unclear exactly which hospitals are where and how safe they are. Many affected states now have average vaccinations. It is not as high as in the northeast, and not particularly low as in the south. Michigan’s overall vaccination rate was 54%, behind the national average of 59%, but Colorado and Minnesota both performed better than the United States as a whole.
In New York, rural areas recorded a quality improvement rate of over 8%, while New York City remained below 2%. State police reopened 13 major vaccination sites across the state and created 200 pop-up sites to provide vaccinations to communities.
New York President Kathy Hochul said Monday during Turkey’s presentation: “We are entering a time of great danger. “The good news compares to last year and this year is that we now have the weapons to fight back.”
Vaccines also work great to protect people who take them, but community disruption is another issue. Unvaccinated people continue to report higher hospital stays due to COVID-19, according to new data from the CDC’s Covid-Net surveillance network, updated Friday and counting with numbers through September.
Mokdad said he didn’t expect the full impact of the COVID-19 hospital to last this winter, but in some hot spots the story was different and everyone had to be prepared. “No country is safe,” he said.
From Maine to Idaho
Maine, one of the most vaccinated states in the United States, is building an outbreak of the disease in hospitals with nearly 300 cases in recent days. Among the least vaccinated cities, the largest increase, according to CDC data.
Idaho on Monday closed health regulations for hospitals, with the exception of the northern enclave, where protection needs have increased, but the system remains tense. As one of Idahos’ largest hospitals, St. Au Luke Health System, 21% of the hospital’s seniors have Covid-19 and 41% of intensive care patients have been treated for the disease, Chief Medical Officer Jim Souza said. Souza said in a brief statement online that luckily no “decision-making” with treatment was pending.
In New Hampshire, where staff and patient grievances have reached new heights, Wentworth-Douglas Hospital in Dover has reached a point of incompetence for which it announced a Facebook app asking people to go to emergencies only when there is real health. violence. On a short note Monday, President Phil Murphy said New Jersey hospitals grew 15% last week and intensive care patients rose 24%.
“The numbers went through people who weren’t vaccinated,” Murphy said.
