White House task force says there could be a fast-spreading 'USA variant' of coronavirus

The US may have its own version of a more transmissible coronavirus and that might be helping fuel the already aggressive spread of the virus, the White House coronavirus task force said in its latest report to states this week.

Reports sent by the task force to states dated January 3 warned of the possibility of aUSA variant” Covid-19의.
This fall/winter surge has been at nearly twice the rate of rise of cases as the spring and summer surges. This acceleration suggests there may be a USA variant that has evolved here, in addition to the UK variant that is already spreading in our communities and may be 50% more transmissible,” reports obtained by CNN said, 요구 “aggressive mitigationto match a much more aggressive virus.
That mitigation should include the use of face masks, the task force said, and immediate vaccination of as many people as possible.
    Without uniform implementation of effective face masking (two or three ply and well-fitting) and strict social distancing, epidemics could quickly worsen as these variants spread and become predominant,” 보고서는 말했다.
    This development comes after the US has tracked cases of a variant first identified in the UK that appears to be more easily transmitted.
    The pandemic continues to rage as the nation has turned its attention to the insurrection at the US Capitol and the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, and the task force continued to warn states ofaggressive community spreadafter the holiday season.
    The United States remains at a high plateau of 140-150,000 confirmed and suspected COVID admissions per week and 120-125,000 total inpatients. Significant continued deterioration, from California across the Sunbelt and up into the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast, despite low testing rates during the holidays, suggests aggressive community spread,” the task force reports said.
    The task force reports also called on outpatient monoclonal antibody treatment infusion sitesimmediately available to save lives.
    And as the nation struggles to rapidly immunize Americans, the reports said that vaccines mustbe put in arms now.
    Do not delay the rapid immunization of those over 65 and vulnerable to severe disease; recommend creation of high throughput vaccination sites with use of EMT personnel to monitor for potential anaphylaxis and fully utilize nursing students. No vaccines should be in freezers but should instead be put in arms now; active and aggressive immunization in the face of this surge would save lives,” the reports said.
