This Delta type could be the last significant spike of the Covid-19 epidemic, but experts warn that the US should not become complacent just yet because the pandemic has not yet run its course. The average daily rate of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths from Covid-19 is decreasing across the country. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the daily average number of infections has reduced by more than 15,000 to more than 86,000, with an average of 200 fewer individuals dying per day.
However, not every region is doing so well. The numbers are increasing in the West and Midwest, and the extent of the impact in the Northeast is still unknown, he said. Although Gottlieb predicts that the worst will be over for most of the country by Thanksgiving and that prevalence levels will begin to fall by Christmas, not all health authorities are sure. Before celebrating, the US must continue to reduce the number of infections, hospitalizations, and fatalities, an accomplishment that requires more people to be vaccinated, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
