Increasing rates of Covid-19 instances, hospitalizations, and fatalities are decreasing, which is a promising indication for the pandemic’s long-term viability and survival.
However, since there are still so many unvaccinated Americans, the numbers may rise again, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who spoke on Fox News Sunday.
The Statistics For Covid-19 Are Improving Steadily
“If we don’t do very well in that respect, there’s always the risk there will be enough circulated virus that you may have a stalling of the decreasing of the number of cases, and when that occurs, as we’ve seen in the past with previous waves that we’ve gone through, there’s the danger of comeback,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Institute of Allergy as well as Infectious Diseases and top medical advisor to President Joe Biden,
According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, despite the fact that the number of cases continues to rise at an average of more over than 85,000 infections each day, the number of cases has decreased by more than 8,000 over the previous few weeks. Furthermore, since the beginning of the month, the number of fatalities has decreased by an average of much more than 200 each day. On the other hand, the poor vaccination rates continue to pose a danger to progress in the numbers. According to the Centers for Disease and Prevention in the United States, as of Sunday, 57 percent of the entire population has received a complete vaccination against the virus.
Moreover, although health experts are unsure of the precise percentage of the population that would need to be protected in order to prevent the spread of the virus, Fauci has said that the overwhelming majority will have to be immunized. The good news is that Fauci does not believe that another surge of cases is on the horizon. In the words of Fauci, “it will be within our power to prevent it from occurring.” “How far we can continue to slide down that slope will be determined by how well we perform in terms of getting people vaccinated.”
As additional Covid-19 boosters may become available in the future, doctors say individuals who got the J & J one-dose vaccination are “awesomely well protected.” However, they should still get another injection to ensure their optimum protection against the virus. “The J & J vaccination, on the other hand, does not seem to be nearly as successful as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. In turn, individuals who had (the J&J vaccination) at the beginning of this year have been slightly less protected. However, they are still very well protected, as a result, “Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, made the announcement.
Collins’ comments come after a US FDA advisory committee recommended that all adults who received a single-dose J & Johnson shot should receive a second daily dosage at least 2 months after their first dose. Collins’ comments are in response to the FDA advisory committee’s recommendation. The FDA will consider the committee’s recommendations. The vaccination experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will then be requested to consider it.
