US covid cases on the rise

-

Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations within the us are at a six-month high, fueled by the rapid spread of the Delta variant across swathes of the country grappling with low vaccination rates.
Nationwide, COVID-19 cases have averaged 100,000 for 3 days during a row, up 35% over the past week, consistent with a Reuters tally of public health data. The surge of the disease was strongest in Louisiana, Florida, and Arkansas.

Hospitalizations rose 40% and deaths, a lagging indicator, registered an 18% uptick within the past week with the foremost fatalities by population in Arkansas.
The intensifying spread of the pandemic has led to the cancellation of some large high-profile events. One notable exception is an annual motorcycle rally in South Dakota which has been proceeding as planned.

Florida set records for hospitalizations for eight days during a row, consistent with the analysis. therein state, most students are due back within the classroom in the week as some school districts debate whether to need masks for pupils.

The head of the nation’s second-largest teachers’ union on Sunday announced a shift in course by backing mandated vaccinations for US teachers in an attempt to guard students who are too young to be inoculated.
The number of youngsters hospitalized with Covid-19 is rising across the country, a trend health experts attribute to the Delta variant being more likely to infect children than the first Alpha strain.

With the virus once more upending Americans’ lives after a quick summer lull, the push to vaccinate those still reluctant has gained fresh momentum.

States including California, by, and Virginia has mandated vaccinations or weekly testing for state employees, also as several cities.

The administration of President Joe Biden set new rules late last month requiring federal workers to supply proof of vaccination or face regular testing, mask mandates, and travel restrictions.
In the private sector, a growing number of companies also are mandating COVID-19 vaccinations. United Airlines, meatpacker Tyson Foods Inc and Microsoft are requiring employees to get vaccinated.
