The national outlook has improved considerably in recent weeks. Hospitalizations and new case reports have been falling since mid-September.
More than 700,000 coronavirus deaths have now been reported nationwide. Daily death reports have started to slowly decline, but it remains common for more than 1,800 fatalities to be reported in a day.

Daily case reports are flat or falling in 40 states, but hotspots have emerged in the northern third of the country, including Montana and Idaho. Parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are reporting their highest caseloads of the pandemic.
About two-thirds of eligible Americans are fully vaccinated. The daily pace of vaccination has increased somewhat in recent days as Pfizer booster shots became more widely available

Hello world!

here have been 5,000,425 Covid-19 related deaths recorded across the globe, according to Johns Hopkins University data Monday.
The total number of Covid cases and deaths are increasing around the world, albeit at a slower pace than in previous periods in the pandemic.
It comes as concerns increase in recent months about a rise in infections, hospitalizations and deaths as winter approaches.

More than 5 million people have died from Covid-19 in less than two years, as the world continues to battle the highly infectious delta strain of the virus and watches for new mutations.

There have been 5,000,425 Covid-19 related deaths recorded across the globe, according to Johns Hopkins University data early Monday. In the U.S., 745,836 people have died due to Covid-19, making it the country with the highest number of recorded deaths.

The coronavirus, which first emerged in China in late 2019, continues to take a deadly toll across the world.

It comes as many countries lift pandemic restrictions and end lockdowns that were imposed, to varying degrees, throughout 2020 in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.

The rapid development of Covid vaccines, which are clinically proven to greatly reduce severe infection, hospitalization and death from the coronavirus, has helped to dramatically lower the number of people dying from Covid, particularly in Western nations where the vaccination programs are at an advanced stage.

Health experts predict uptick in U.S. Covid cases due to new BA.2 variant

U.S. health experts are warning an emerging, highly contagious Covid omicron variant, called BA.2, could soon lead to another uptick in domestic coronavirus cases.

White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said BA.2 is about 50% to 60% more transmissible than omicron, but it does not appear to be more severe. Health officials continue to stress coronavirus vaccines and boosters remain the best ways to prevent serious illness from the virus.

“It does have increased transmission capability,” Fauci said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “However, when you look at the cases, they do not appear to be any more severe and they do not appear to evade immune responses either from vaccines or prior infections.”

The variant has already caused cases to increase in China and parts of Europe. It is estimated to account for about 25% or 30% of new cases in the U.S., but it could become the country’s most dominant variant, Fauci said.

Fauci said he expects “an uptick in cases” due to BA.2, but not necessarily a massive surge like other variants have caused. That’s despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently relaxing mask recommendations for most Americans.

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a board member of Covid vaccine maker Pfizer and a former head of the Food and Drug Administration, also expressed similar views on Sunday regarding BA.2.

Murthy said the variant could cause a new spike in cases but that the country is in a better position now than it was in the previous two years, when Covid-19 “defined our lives.”

“We should be prepared, Covid hasn’t gone away,” Murthy said during “Fox News Sunday.” “Our focus should be on preparation, not on panic.”

Gottlieb, echoing previous comments days before to CNBC, said he also expects “some uptick” due to BA.2 but “not a big wave of infection.”

“I think we’re going to continue to see low levels of infection through the summer. But before we get there, we’re probably going to see some tick-up of infection like the Europeans are seeing right now, maybe not as pronounced,” Gottlieb said Sunday during CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The CDC reported more than 31,200 new Covid-19 cases Saturday, including 958 deaths. Both are significantly down from the beginning of the year.
