A long line of cars lined up as if dominoes were parked.

Vehicles rushing in to be tested for Corona also occupied the surrounding roads.

Omicron mutations are spreading rapidly, and this is happening every day in many parts of the United States.

The number of new cases per day in the United States is at an all-time high.

As of the 27th local time, there were 441,200 new confirmed cases.

This is the highest number in the world, exceeding the 410,000 people counted in India in May.

On average over the past week, about 265,000 new cases were confirmed per day, surpassing the record at the time of the pandemic in January.

“The situation is very dire. I’ve been in emergency medicine for over 10 years and this is the worst scenario we’ve ever had.”

However, there is a possibility that some may have been overestimated as people who were not tested during the Christmas holiday flocked together.

The spread of COVID-19 is also on the rise in Europe.

France has recorded 208,000 confirmed cases in the last 24 hours, a new record high.

On the 25th, the number of people surpassed 100,000 for the first time, and it has doubled in 5 days.

“In the last 24 hours, 208,000 French have tested positive for COVID-19. This means that every second of the day and night, more than two people are infected with the virus.”

In the UK, 183,000 new cases were confirmed, breaking a new record, and Italy is also breaking a daily high, with the number of confirmed cases approaching 100,000 per day.

WHO repeatedly emphasized support for countries that lack vaccines, saying that the number of confirmed cases is increasing like a ‘tsunami’ due to the simultaneous spread of delta and omicron mutations.
