New Delhi: In America, the havoc of the new variants of Corona and Corona, Omicron, is increasing continuously. Corona cases in America have broken all their previous records. In the last 24 hours, about 1.3 million or 13 lakh new cases have been reported here. Earlier on January 3, a new case of 1.03 million i.e. 10 lakh 3 thousand corona infection was reported here.
Let us tell you that America has been the most affected by this epidemic in the world. Most of the cases being reported in the US are from Omicron variants. Because of this, the concern has increased further. The World Health Organization and various experts have already warned about the pace of infection of Omicron.
According to data from Johns Hopkins University, on Sunday, the total COVID-19 cases in the US reached 60 million. There have also been 8,37,594 deaths in the country since January 2020.
Let us tell you that earlier last week one million cases were reported in America for the first time, after which President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris held an emergency meeting with the White House’s Corona epidemic monitoring team.
Significantly, the corona vaccine was first started in America. After this, the booster dose and giving vaccine to children below the age of 18 years has also started here. Even after this, the arrival of so many cases is raising a big question.
Although Omicron is being described as less lethal, but the truth is that its infection rate is very fast and due to this patients have to be admitted to the hospital and due to this death is also happening in different countries. There is tremendous pressure on hospitals due to increasing cases in America.
