Covid-19 Worsening and Returning to Early Pandemic Stages in the US

It’s been months since the Covid-19 vaccine was made available to the majority of the US population, and things are starting to resemble the early stages of the pandemic: cases are increasing, events are being postponed, and restrictions are returning. The problem is a lack of vaccinations, and one solution, according to Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

He is also a member of the US Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee, is to require people to take action to protect themselves and their communities. Initially, there was a lot of excitement about becoming vaccinated, but now many people are hesitant or resistant to getting vaccinated. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 49.3 percent of the US population is completely vaccinated.

It is significantly less than the 70 to 85 percent that experts predict will be required to limit or stop the virus’s spread. We used to give out three million dosages every day. We may have reached a population immunity level of around 80% if we had continued on this path. And the number of cases is on the rise once more. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, 49 states are reporting an increase in cases, with 35 of them having a seven-day average of new cases that is at least 50 percent higher than last week.

The Washington Nationals’ MLB game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday was cancelled after 12 Nationals players and staff members tested positive for Covid-19. The rising number of cases has prompted several places to reinstate mask requirements.
