The President Biden administration is warning that America could possibly see 100M COVID-19 cases coming Fall and cold weather, as US officials widely stress the need for additional funding package from the U.S. Congress to prepare Americans.
The White House official told the reporters in April that the Joe Biden government would renew its drive with policymakers to secure Coronavirus funding in the subsequent week when the United States Congress returns from break, following inaction from the U.S. Senate on a ten billion dollars funding before the Easter break.
The President Biden administration warned that the U.S. could see 100M Coronavirus-linked infections and a possibly significant surge of fatalities in the coming Fall and Winter, driven by highly contagious subvariants of the Omicron version that have shown a remarkable ability to escape jab protection.
Moreover, the projection, made yesterday by a senior official of the government during a background conference as the country nears a Coronavirus death number of one million, is part of a wider push to enhance the nation’s preparedness and encourage legislators to appropriate billions of dollars to buy a new allotment of COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines.
COVID-19 Community Levels
Many health experts have agreed that a significant wave coming Fall and cold weather is potentially given disappearing immunity from jabs and infections, relaxed COVID-related restrictions, and the rise of new virus transformations better capable of dodging the immunity. Additionally, several experts have cautioned that coming back to more comfortable behaviors, from going without face masks to joining packed indoor social congregations, would lead to increased Coronavirus infections.
The COVID data tracker weekly average shows that new Coronavirus cases in the U.S. increased twofold from 29312 to about 71K on May 7, a little more than a month later. So, unfortunately, a total of 81831854 Coronavirus infections have been reported in America as of May 5, 2022. And there’re seventy-eight counties, districts, or territories – 2.42 percent – with a high ‘COVID-19 Community Level’; 2862 (87.76%) counties with a Low Community Level, and 316 (9.81%) counties with a Medium Community Level.
According to media reports last month, President Biden’s government asked for $22.5B in additional Coronavirus relief package in March 2022 in as huge government spending, but it was stripped from the massive bill. That appeal included money for COVID-19 testing, vaccines, treatments, and averting looming outbreaks.
As of May 5 morning update by the JHU Coronavirus Resource Center, more than 997318 Americans have lost their lives.
