Health officials in Santa Clara County warned on Thursday that the currency-driven coronavirus infection is on the rise, which is believed to be more easily spread and more resistant to vaccines that threaten to counter recent advances in linking potentially deadly pathogens.
The business has reopened after a drop in cases over the past two months, according to Santa Clara County Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody urged residents to avoid traveling, continue to wear face masks and avoid crowds and household activities with others, fearing cases would swell again before they were enough. People are vaccinated.
“We remain in a vague position as to our ability to contain this epidemic,” Cody said. “We all have cabin fever, we all want to get out, we all want to get back into our lives, but we can’t do that yet.”
County officials said most of the church has moved into the county. As of March 27, the two most populous counties in the area have confirmed 92 variants of the United Kingdom, up from 15 in mid-March. Three confirmed cases have been reported from South Africa, two in mid-March. There was a case of the Brazilian variant and more than 1,000 confirmations of the pair, known as the California or West Coast variant.
In addition, the county on Thursday recorded its first two cases of two types of New York, which are considered less risky, “types of interest.”
The announcement, made on the same day that California opened eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine for all adults 50 and older, continues to cause shortages in most areas, including Santa Clara County, and many who already qualify have set a schedule. Have been unable to. Shot.
“We’re in a race between forms and vaccines,” Cody said, as health officials shoot as many people as they can to save others as quickly as possible.
Some types of viruses that cause COVID-19 are worrisome because they have been shown to spread more easily in people and are more resistant to current vaccines.
The more contagious West Coast variant is now dominant in the state in California and has proven to fail protective antibodies used in vaccines and therapies, according to a study from the University of California-San Francisco.
Disease control centers have dubbed it a “variety of concern”, along with others first identified in the UK, South Africa and Brazil.
After receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine Thursday morning in Los Angeles, Gov. Gavin News said that “we need to be careful about new types and their potential for new cases. Infections have been on the rise in several states, including Michigan, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
“We are very thoughtful, we are very concerned about this change,” Newsome said Thursday. He noted that while California is opening with a case rate reduction, its reopening blueprint allows more needs to be rotated with more business and activity restrictions.
“The blueprint allows us to tug back if we see an increase in numbers,” Newsme said.
With the reproduction of the virus in infected people, there are variations, some changes which in some cases may make it more contagious or resistant to the body’s defenses.
None of the coronavirus variants for stress shown to significantly reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine currently exceeds the threat level of the highest “type of high outcome”.
According to a UCSF study, the West Coast variant – actually a pair known as B.1.427 and B.1.429 – has been found to be 20 percent more contagious than the original virus. Variables from the UK and South Africa are thought to be 50% more transmissible.
The UK variant, known as BK.1.1.7, has been found in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and is on track to become an influential variant of the country.
The South African strain, known as B.1.551, which seems more contagious and more resistant to some vaccines, originally appeared in Santa Clara County in February and was linked to travel. The second case came up in mid-March, the fourth in the state, and is believed to have resulted from a transmission to the community.
According to a clinical trial published last month in the New England Journal of Medicine Medicine, the South African variant is able to exclude the Astrazenka vaccine, which has yet to be introduced in the U.S. Not authorized in Moderna and the other two vaccines made by Johnson and Johnson offer little protection. But the South African variant has not gained much foothold in the United States.
According to a recent count by the California Department of Public Health, there are now a total of 8,800 cases across the state of the two variants, known as the West Coast Strain, 474 in the UK, 6 from the Brazilian Strain, p.1 And four South African strains.
