Omicron infection peaks in parts of the United States, experts say the number of epidemics is still underestimated


2022-01-14: [Article Link] Original title: The Omicron infection peaks in parts of the United States. Information diagrams On January 14, the U.S. cable news network reported a surge in Omicron infection, pushing the number of confirmed cases and hospitalizations in the U.S. Covid-19 to an all-time high. Indications this week suggest that the Omicron infection wave is reaching its peak in the north-eastern part of the United States, where Covid-19 has a higher diagnosis rate than in the rest of the United States. New York City health department data indicate that although positive detection rates tend to be “stable”, confirmed cases are increasing, as are hospitalizations and deaths. In addition, data on the last 10 days of the epidemic are considered incomplete. In a statement, the Department stated that “from the point of view of Covid-19 cases, hospitalization and death, New York City is in the midst of a wave of Omicron infections. The Philly Health Commissioner, Cheryl Bettigor, stated on Tuesday (11) that, in terms of a range of indicators, the local population “may now be at the peak of the epidemic”. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the United States currently reports on average more than 786,000 confirmed cases per day, twice as many as two weeks ago. Andrew Pavia, an infectious disease doctor at Utah University, believes that the reports of the epidemic in recent days have been underestimated. “Survey resources in many parts of the United States are challenged and may stagnate simply because of limited PCR testing. In addition, many family tests are not included in official reports. Pavia also indicated that, as the health system is pushed to the brink of collapse, overstretched and understaffed health sector reporting may lag behind. Some epidemiological models predict that the United States is likely to reach a peak in the coming weeks. Although there are indications that Omicron is less toxic than Delta, the high number of infections may lead to a new wave of hospitalization and death. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the number of hospital admissions in the United States by Covid-19 has reached an all-time high, with more than 151,000 hospitalizations due to Covid-19, and the number of intensive care wards is close to record levels. The death toll of Covid-19 has also begun to rise sharply, with nearly 1,800 deaths a day in the United States due to Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University, an increase of almost 50 per cent over a week ago. “We hope that this is really the height of the epidemic, not the false peak.
