The Coronavirus outbreak that is ramping up hospitalization rates high in parts of the South is also hitting US states such as Oregon and Hawaii that were previously known as success stories in American.
With the passage of time, the states kept hospitalizations and infections at controllable levels, they are losing progress as a number of Coronavirus cases beat extremely tired health care staff.
In recent days, Oregon, along with several other states like Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Florida, has admitted more population in the hospital with Coronavirus than at any other stage in the epidemic. Moreover, Hawaii is also very close to entering the threatening stage too.
Both American states are having inoculation rates above the national rate as of earlier week. Louisiana and Arkansas were notably below average, but Florida was about even. At the same time, Mississippi positions at the lowest for inoculation rates.
People are exhausted – Dr. Jason Kuhl
The chief health officer at Providence Medford Medical Center of Oregon, Dr. Jason Kuhl, described that it is heartbreaking, people are exhausted, and you can see it in their eyes. In the medical center, COVID-19 infected people left on wheeled stretchers in hallways and their monitoring gadgets beeping away. Furthermore, other patients requiring treatment for heart disease or cancer are being turned away.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is likely to approve a 3rd Coronavirus vaccine jab for specific people with weakened immune systems, like cancer people and other organ transplant receivers, to provide them with an additional vaccine dose to get robust immunity and protection.
America is watching the Coronavirus hitting back, significantly driven by a novel variant known as delta strain which experts say is more dangerous and highly transmissible. Besides this, the inoculation rates are very low, particularly in the South and several other rural areas and conservative regions of the United States.
Novel infections across the country are about 123,000 daily, the same level had been observed at the start of February, and the fatality rate stands at over five hundred daily, which was previously seen in May.
