Texas, Puerto Rico and U.S. The Virgin Islands stand alone in the decline in covid-19 cases in the past two weeks, as the country looks to a possible “third peak” of the disease.
Although there have been reports of a “slight decrease” in cases in Lone Star State over the 14-day period ending on Saturday, the news was better than most: 38 states, including Washington, Washington, DC and Guam, have seen an increase in all cases in the last 14 days. . , And nine states have gone plate-to-plate, according to NBC News leases. Rhode Island, like Texas, has seen a sharp drop in data over the weekend, and Missouri is currently not reporting data due to the Technolog issue.
Vermont and New Mexico have seen a 17% increase in cases over the past two weeks.
“We’re really struggling,” said Dr. Todd Vento, director of the TeleHealth Infectious Diseases program at Utah-based Intermont Ointain Health, on the NBC show “Today.” “People are doing heroic work, but they’re really reaching a point where it’s going to be literally inadvisable.”
On Saturday, thousands of people, many without masks, joined the Trump rally in Jensville, Wisconsin, as health officials urged residents not to come with anyone outside their immediate families. According to the state health department, 3,861 new cases have been reported in the state over the weekend.
In North Dakota,%% of the state’s population has contracted Covid-1 cont since March, with most cases occurring in the last few weeks.
According to NBC News, North and South Dakota lead the United States in per capita weekly virus cases, and ICUs are filling up across the state. According to figures recently released by the North Dakota Health Department, there are 16 ICU open beds in the state, the only one in the capital Bismarck. The state, which does not have a mask command, only recommends covering the faces of its residents.
“You know, from my point of view, the mask command, it’s going to be difficult to implement,” said Kirby Krueger, North Dakota’s director of disease control. “I think there’s a section of the population that doesn’t want to do this… it’s not that they think the government should put pressure on them.”
As the state’s cases continue to grow, government Doug Bergham continues to push for personal responsibility. “I think it’s important for the future of our state that we understand that there is something that is more powerful than the executive order – infinitely more powerful than the command – and these are the beliefs that hold in the hearts of individuals.” A press conference.
Bergum said he was “surprised” people are still discussing the mask command because “there’s no other way for a person to wear a mask than to choose to do it.”
In Texas, where the disease is declining slightly, more than 860,000 cases and about 17,500 deaths have been reported. While trends are somewhat positive, the government’s Greg Abbott on Friday deployed additional resources to Panahandel and the South Plains to support local hospitals there.
The state of Texas is providing assistance to hospitals in these two areas, as the Amarillo and Labb .k communities have been admitted to COVID-19 hospitals, The Boat said in a press release.
The cases spike almost nationwide as epidemiologists warn of a possible “third peak” of Covid-19, this time concentrated mostly in the Midwest and the plains.
“Between Thanksgiving and the New Year, we see potential six-week superprider events, exactly, in which we will go together with family and friends,” said Dr. Carlos del Rio, an infectious disease specialist at Emory University School of Medicine, told NBC News on Friday. “And we can see that a lot of diseases happen.”
