With a 20 percent increase in infections in the Midwest, the numbers are skyrocketing again. The holiday period, which begins this week, is expected to make matters worse.

COVID-19 infections are on the rise again in the United States, with the number expected to cross 100,000 new infections a day in the country by the end of this week.

The temperature in the country is falling. In some areas, they are already below zero. This leads to meetings behind closed doors where conditions are more conducive to the spread of the virus. The Midwest of the country, with cities like Chicago, is seeing the coldest weather. Consequently, a 20 percent increase in infections has been reported in the last two weeks.

Most worryingly, the increase comes ahead of the official Thanksgiving holiday. With gatherings of family and friends, the numbers are expected to skyrocket (as they did last year, even when many families decided not to get together to celebrate).

Thanksgiving is upon us, which means the holiday season is in full swing. Unfortunately, this movement is a breeding ground for the virus to spread in all fifty states.

Amid this context, the authorities have confirmed that it has not been possible to substantially increase the number of vaccinated in the country, which is around 60 percent, without reaching what is necessary to guarantee mass immunity. Instead, the government continues to insist on the message that those vaccinated have fewer chances of ending up in hospital if they contract the virus and even less of dying.

Delivered last Friday in an average of seven days in the country last week, 93,196 affected in one day; This number is expected to cross the 100,000 mark this Friday. One month ago, on October 25, that number averaged 70,271 daily.

In states like Minnesota, the healthcare system is crumbling. The federal government has sent medical workers to help.But as has already been experienced, if this begins to happen in several states, there is not enough help for everyone.

Although the numbers have increased, the average is still better than during the summer, when the Delta variant exploded.

The other problem in the country is in states where a very successful vaccination campaign was carried out, such as Vermont, New Hampshire, or New Mexico. It has been nine or ten months since most of the population has been vaccinated in these states. As it has been so long, many are losing antibodies, which is noticeable with an increase in infections. Doctors say the solution is to put on the brace.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) has stated this week that the booster shot is recommended for everyone over 18 years of age. About a dozen states already have the booster available to all adults. The vaccine has also been approved for children as young as five years old, but this has been the least successful vaccination campaign so far in the country.
