As of the 19th local time, the New York Times counted an average of 93,000 new COVID-19 cases per day in the United States over the past 7 days.

This is a 30% increase from two weeks ago and the 90,000 level for two days in a row.

In the United States, the average daily number of confirmed cases climbed to the 80,000 level on the 13th and has continued to rise.

If the southern part was the epicenter during the fourth outbreak last summer, this time, the northern and northeastern regions of the Midwest, where the weather is cold, are leading the spread.

Michigan and Minnesota have the highest number of new cases per capita.

The United States experienced the worst Corona 19 situation last winter, with up to 300,000 new cases per day and up to 4,400 deaths per day.

Health experts have warned that a similar pattern could be repeated this winter.

It is interpreted that the US health authorities expanded the vaccination target to all adults over the age of 18 despite controversy over the effectiveness of vaccine booster shots, that is, booster vaccinations, reflecting these concerns.

It is drawing attention as to whether health experts’ concerns will materialize as it is predicted that the number of travelers on Thanksgiving Day, the largest holiday in the United States on the 25th, will be close to the pre-pandemic level of COVID-19.
