Health researchers have warned that the U.S. The number of people killed in India could almost double in the next few months despite being vaccinated nationwide.
A December 4 report published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., predicts a combined 539,000 deaths in the U.S. as of April 1.
U.S. More than 279,000 people have died from the virus and more than 14.3 million have been infected, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The country is expected to approve one or more vaccines as early as December and begin distribution.
IHME researchers predict that the expected vaccine rollout will reduce mortality by 9,000 just before April 1, and say a quick vaccine rollout targeting high-risk individuals could save 14,000 more lives.
“Vaccination on a large scale in 2021 means we have a way back to a normal life, but there are still a few rough months left,” Christopher Murray, director of IHME, said in a statement. “We should be vigilant to protect ourselves at least in the month of April, when, according to our estimates, the effect of vaccines will begin.”
The researchers also said that wearing masks could save the lives of 66,000 people by 95% by April 1, and urged states to enforce the order to reduce the spread and reduce the pressure on the healthcare system.
“Especially in the Northern Hemisphere, it is crucial for governments to impose or re-impose mandates that limit gatherings and require masks.” “Where winter growth drives the spikes in the infection, there will be many people who can still become infected and possibly die before the vaccine is completely broken.”
Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated in the U.S. A fatal epidemic is entering a new phase and there is a record number of patients in hospitals since the epidemic began.
More than 227,800 Kovid-19 cases were reported in the country on Friday, a record since the outbreak began, while 2,600 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins data. U.S. On a weekly average, more than 2,000 deaths are reported each day.
