USA:As the COVID 19 is changing its mood with the time, crises with this also setting a new record. United States who is one of the most affected due to COVID 19 is now set a new record as the country recorded more than 2,700 deaths in the past 24 hours, this is the highest since the April.
The forbidding figure is reported on Wednesday, came as new hospital entries went past the 100,000-mark, prompting health specialists to warn that the numbers are expected to rise.
The US has reported almost 14 million COVID 19 cases and more than 273,000 deaths.
“We are now in that realm, potentially, to begin to see 150,000, 200,000 to 250,000 deaths a day of this virus,” Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“So the death concerns are real, and I do think, sadly, that before we see February, we could be like to 40,000 to 50,000 who have died from the virus,” he added.
The worrying projection appeared as the United Kingdom granted emergency permission to the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine next results showed its jab was 95 per cent efficient.
A US Food and Drug Administration committee of external advisers will meet on December 10 to examine whether to recommend emergency-use authorisation of the Pfizer vaccine.
Moderna’s vaccine, which employed similar technology as Pfizer’s and was too nearly 95 per cent effective in limiting illness in a pivotal clinical trial, is assumed to be reviewed a week later.
US officials hope that 40 per cent of adults in the US could be given the shots in three months.
“We can make our first purchase of the vaccine to states this month, and we are on track to be ready to ship enough vaccines for 20 million Americans before the edge of the year,” said US health secretary Alex Azar.
“Of course we are all keen to vaccinate every American who wants it and we expect to be at that period by the end of the spring,” he replied.
