La task force per il coronavirus della Casa Bianca avverte questa settimana che mentre ci sono stati alcuni progressi nel rallentare la diffusione della pandemia negli Stati Uniti settentrionali e centrali, cases are still surging in more populated states.

Stabilization in the Northern Plains, Upper Midwest, and some Rocky Mountain and Heartland states is being offset by significant deterioration in more populous states (82% della popolazione),” reports sent to states by the task force and obtained by CNN said, echoing comments made by Dr. Deborah Birx during a call with the nation’s governors earlier this week.
The reports offered another week of bleak assessments, detto, “The fall surge is merging with the post-Thanksgiving surge to create a winter surge with the most rapid increase in cases; the widest spread, con più di 2,000 counties in COVID red zones; and the longest duration, now entering the 9th week, we have experienced.
Despite that surge and athreat to the hospital systems,” the task force warned thatmany state and local governments are not implementing the same mitigation policies that stemmed the tide of the summer surge,” citing indoor gatherings at home and calling for asignificant reduction in capacity or closure in public and private indoor spaces, including restaurants and bars.
    Americani, the reports said, dovrebbero “(capire) the clear risks of ANY family or friend interactions outside of their immediate household indoors without masks.That behavior has not been modeled by the White House, tuttavia, amid dozens of indoor holiday parties over the past two weeks.
    In the days before Christmas, the task force told state officials towarn about any gathering during December holidays.
    The reportsobtained by CNN just days after a vaccine was first distributed to front-line health care workers in the USalso urged states to prioritize the next tier of individuals who will receive vaccines, citing some stark data.
    Ensure comprehensive analysis of next tier priority of vaccinations; understand immunization of individuals over 65 will have the greatest impact on hospitalizations and deaths. For those over 70 with COVID infection, 20% or more are admitted and nearly 10% die,” the reports said.
    The reports this week also offered guidance on treatments, recommending monoclonal antibodies for those with mild and moderate casesbut who are at high risk of severe outcomes,” remdesivir forpatients who require hospitalization,” and dexamethasonefor late-stage inpatientswho require oxygen support, especially ventilation.
    And the task force urged states toplease utilize all antigen tests during this current surge to find community asymptomatic spread.
    Rhode Island this week is the state with the most new cases per population, followed by Ohio, Nord Dakota, Indiana, Tennessee, Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, South Dakota and Kansas in the top ten.
      The reports also provided a ranking by state of Covid-19-related hospital admissions per 100 hospital beds. Arizona had the most admissions per inpatient beds, followed by Maryland, Arkansas, Kentucky, Nuovo Messico, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Washington, DC, Nevada and Ohio in the top ten.
