COVID-19 disease is not Epheme.

The latest report from Johns Hopkins University shows there are now more than 8 million cases in the us with at least 10 states breaking records on Friday. States were reopened after being locked up for several weeks to help prevent the virus from spreading.

By July 22nd, The country has reached the highest peak of the epidemic to date, with an average of more than 67,000 cases daily.

Twenty-seven states saw spikes between 10% and 50%: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then but has started to climb again in recent weeks.

Before the WHO's study, a large controlled study of remdesivir in the U.S. found that it shortens recovery time by about a third in severely ill, hospitalized adults with Covid-19, but does little to help those with milder cases. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 832,000 cases and over 741,000 cases, respectively.

By mid-September, average daily infections began to drop to more than 34,000.

Are people with 'O' blood group less vulnerable to COVID-19 infection? Here's what new study suggests

"You can't enter into the cool months of the fall and the cold months of the winter with a high community infection baseline", Fauci said in a John Hopkins virtual event posted Friday.

Hotspots are now on the rise in rural Midwest as children in many American communities return to school, sports resume and political rallies are pushed into high gear. The state reported three consecutive days of record-high daily case counts from October 8 to October 10.

While the U.S. faces a new rise in cases, the Trump administration discussed some of its plans for vaccine distribution.

A total of 7,916,532 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 216,903 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins.

Lead author Dr Mypinder Sekhon, of the University of British Columbia, said: "Of particular importance as we continue to traverse the pandemic, we now have a wide range of survivors who are exiting the acute part of Covid-19, but we need to explore mechanisms by which to risk stratify those with longer-term effects". Of those 10 potential vaccines in late-stage trials, there are now five that will be available in the United States if approved. The lure of new lawsuits in the Midwest has not given up, and now places like the Northeast have been relatively stable since spring, with cases on the rise.
