The United States recorded more than one million new cases of COVID-19 on Monday | Coronavirus


The number of cases reported over the 24 hour period was 1,080,211 at 8:30 p.m. on Monday evening. However, it should be taken with caution, as the number of cases recorded on Monday is generally very high, especially after a weekend of three days as was the case for New Years in the United States.

However, this is more than double the number of cases recorded last Monday, after the three-day Christmas weekend, when more than 489,000 infections had been recorded by the university.

The average of cases over seven days, considered more significant by the experts, was established Monday evening at nearly 486,000 cases daily.

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are due to meet with the pandemic management committee on Tuesday to provide an update.

Dr Anthony Fauci, senior White House adviser on the health crisis, said on Sunday that the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the United States was on a curve almost vertical.

Omicron is now the dominant variant in the United States and accounted for about 59% of new cases in the week ending December 25, according to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC).

Anthony Fauci said he hopes the current wave will peak after some weeks before reversing, as happened in South Africa.

Deaths and hospitalizations in the United States have also increased recently, but to a much lesser extent. But they could still climb, as they usually reach their peaks after the contaminations curve.

Nearly 206 million Americans, or 62% of the population, are fully immunized against COVID-19 according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 69 million additionally received a booster dose.

The previous record average recorded by the United States in previous waves was 258,000 daily cases during the week of January 5 to 11, 2021.
