The United States and the United Kingdom are developing records for new Govt-19 cases. According to experts, delta types and mainly Ômicron are causing a new wave of infections. The average number of seven-day moving cases in the United States reached 267,000 on Wednesday, the 29th. The New York Times. The United Kingdom added 183,000 new infections in 24 hours – nationwide, 90% of those who did not take the booster dose.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the “tsunami” of Ômicron infections over the past seven days has increased the pressure on health systems, which are “on the verge of collapse”. In the United States, Ômicron overcame delta variation in just a few weeks and represents 96.3% of new cases in the three northwestern US states (Oregon, Washington and Idaho), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In the UK, the situation is recurring. In Scotland, for example, 15,849 new trials were positively reported to Kovit in 24 hours, the highest daily total since the outbreak, breaking the previous record of 11,030 set on December 26. The UK daily number also set a record, with 138,287 cases reported on Wednesday and 117,093 on Tuesday.

With the registration of new cases, hospital admissions also increase. There are an average of 71,000 people a day in the United States. Mortality is also on the rise, with a daily average of 1,243 – as of January 26, 3,342 deaths were reported in the country, the highest ever. “The tidal wave of Ômicron cases will flood most of the country within the next month,” said Neil Sekel, a professor at the University of Maryland.

Micron variation is faster than vaccinated ones, including delta. In the UK, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said 9 out of 10 ICUs infected with Govt disease did not take the booster dose, making a fresh appeal to the public to take an extra dose before New Year’s Eve. “The Ômicron variant continues to cause real problems. We see an increase in cases in hospitals,” Johnson said.


Due to the increase in cases and hospitalizations, the United Kingdom has launched a new campaign to promote the vaccine. At least 57% of the population over the age of 12 has already taken the extra dose. The goal is to provide reinforcements to full-grown people by the end of the year – officials say. In the United States, President Joe Biden’s government is also seeking to accelerate further measures. So far, 32.7% of people have received a booster.

“The overall risk associated with micron variation is very high,” the WHO warned in its weekly report. The document shows that the number of cases doubles every two to three days. (With international companies).
