New cases of Covid-1 var have once again increased in more than half of the United States, as authorities rush to vaccinate more people before high-risk infections become more prevalent in the country.

As of Sunday, the seven-day average of new cases in 27 states has increased by 5% or more, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. In the U.S., the country recorded an average of 54,30,008 new cases per day last week, an increase of one percent from the following week, according to the statistics.

Although the U.S. has picked up the pace of vaccinations, giving about 25 million shots a day, some health officials have warned that the country is in an uncertain place. In many states the lifting of sanctions and the U.S. The spread of more infectious diversity in India threatens to undo the nation’s progress, which has seen cases, hospitalizations and deaths all come down dramatically since the beginning of this year.

‘Serious threat’

The ban is a “serious threat to the progress we have made,” said Dr. John H. Snyder, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Rochelle Valensky told reporters at a press briefing on Monday. He said he is concerned about the inevitable increase in cases. “We are at a critical stage in this epidemic, a thorn in the side.”

With new deaths continuing to occur every day, the death of Covid-19 is likely due to preference for vaccination in the elderly and people with comorbid conditions. About 68.8% of these people aged 65 and over have received at least one shot of the vaccine by Sunday, according to the CDC. In total, more than 124.4 million doses have been given, but most of them are for two-dose vaccines.

As vaccination continues to generate additional optimism, many states have begun to ease restrictions on businesses and gatherings, despite warnings from the CDC not to do so. However some states, such as New Jersey, have begun Stop reopening as cases begin to grow.

The White House Chief Medical Adviser, Dr. Anthony Fawcett last week urged states to declare victory prematurely.

He said he was concerned about several states and cities that are withdrawing to public health measures and abandoning the mask order.

“So it’s unfortunate but I’m not surprised that you’re seeing an increase in the number of cases every day in regions – cities, states or regions, even though the vaccine is being distributed at a good clip of 2 (million) to 3 million per day.” Said on Friday. “Preventive and public health measures that we can all discuss can be eliminated if certain areas are withdrawn prematurely.”
