Side Effect Of 4th Of July Celebration In America, New Cases Of Corona Doubled In Three Weeks
Corona cases in America have increased again after a month. During the three weeks, the new cases coming daily have almost doubled. The reason for this has been attributed to the rapidly spreading delta variant. One reason behind this is also being told about the Independence Day celebrated on 4th July in the country. A large number of people had gathered on this day. According to John Hopkins University data, 11,300 new cases of corona were reported in the country on 23 June. On Monday, July 13, their number increased to 23600. During the last two weeks, there has been a steady increase in cases in the Dakota and Maine states of the country.
Bill Powderly, co-director of the Infectious Disease Division at the School of Medicine in Washington, says that it is not a coincidence that cases are increasing at the same time as we expected this to happen. Experts had predicted an increase in the cases of corona in the country around the fourth week of July.
According to the CDC, there are five such states in the country where the fresh cases of corona have increased rapidly within two weeks. The reason for this is the lack of vaccination here. Only 45.9 percent of people in Missouri, 43 percent in Arkansas, 50.9 percent in Nevada and 49.5 percent in Utah have been given the vaccine. Due to rising cases, people in Los Angeles County and St. Louis has been instructed to wear masks in public places even if they have taken a dose of vaccine. Not only this, Chicago has made quarantine mandatory for ten days for those coming from Missouri and Arkansas.
