More than 10,000 patients were hospitalized in Florida on Sunday, the state is continually surpassing all the previous records.
The increase in the number of cases compelled Governor John Bel Edwards to urge the people of the states to wear a mask while at home or indoors. The medical officers are worried about the next stage of the virus and how its vigorous spread is going to affect the citizens of the United States. Dr. Catherine O’Neal, chief medical officer of Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana said in an interview, “It is becoming difficult to give adequate care to the patients, there is a deficit of medical staff as many nurses were out sick”.

In Arkansas also the hospitalization of infected people is soaring and breaking all the records. In California and San Francisco Bay Countries, a new rule is passed to reinstate wearing masks mandatory in public places from Tuesday midnight. The Governors of New York and New Jersey stated that jail, hospitals, nursing houses, home workers, transport workers will be required to get vaccinated or submit to regular testing to resume their work.
The inoculation will be mandatory for more than 11,000 employees in the city. In some parts of the United States, the mask mandate was removed. Especially barring schools from requiring face coverings. The parents were asked to make the decision for their children about wearing the mask at school. The Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York urged bars, restaurants, hotels, and other private businesses to allow only vaccinated customers to avail of their service. This bold move was to encourage vaccination and prevent the spread of the virus.
They also emphasized that the rules will be further clamping down if the number of cases does not decline. The strict rules and regulations are coming into force to spur reluctant Americans to get them vaccinated as the Delta Variant of Coronavirus surges across the country.
Florida has one of the worst outbreaks in the US. The hospitalization rising to 10,0000 from 2,000 per day in less than 30 days is a matter of concern for all. Although the number of deaths due to infection is still below the peak levels. It is the younger age group that is observed being hospitalized. The Delta Variant is a significant risk for the younger population. With so many rules and regulations coming into place, the motive of the US administration is to bring the situation under control, get more and more people vaccinated, and improve medical services to offer better treatment to the patients.
