American blogger Alex Montrealex drew attention to an amazing and positive fact: a sharp drop in coronavirus cases. Over the past three weeks in the United States, they have decreased by 44%, and in the world as a whole - by 30%, and not at all due to vaccination, since 8% of residents in America received vaccinations, and 13% in the world.
In total, 110,679 cases of covid infection were registered last Wednesday, while the 7-day average was 135,904, which is 44% less than 3 weeks earlier. Interestingly, the trend appears to be global, according to a Monday report from the World Health Organization that the incidence has been falling for three weeks in a row.
The number of hospitalized patients has also decreased by 30% from the peak on January 6 at 132 474 on January 6 to 92 880 today, which is the lowest figure since November 29, 2020.
At the same time, only in 6 US states the incidence is increasing, while in 44 it is falling. For example, in California, 21,451 new cases of the disease were registered, and the peak value in mid-December was 54,000, that is, by almost a third... The number of cases in New York has more than halved.
Analysts are confident that vaccination has nothing to do with it, since only 8% of Americans received the first dose, and only 2% both. Most likely, the decrease is due to the large number of infected people than is officially estimated, according to officials in the United States, about 90 million, and also to the fact that people move less compared to the winter holidays.
The author is confident that the deadliest month of the pandemic in America is coming to an end, and the rate of vaccination is increasing.
