Covid, the alarm of the United States: a new wave is coming

The White House predicts a “new wave of Covid infections” and has announced a plan to send free home testing kits to millions of Americans. Covid coordinator Ashish Jha hinted to CNN that the emergency is not over for the Biden administration. “This – he explained – is not a disease with a single pathology. Hospitalizations and overwork of medical personnel are linked to the fact that all respiratory pathologies are involved» and that they also observe a worsening of flu symptoms. “We are aware – he added – that the increase in cases of Covid that we are witnessing is part of one of the worst times from the point of view of the flu in the last decade”.

The US government has renewed its appeal to get vaccinated, avoid crowds and wear a mask. Jha did not want to exaggerate the predictions of how many new cases could be registered this winter, but he said that the data of the last few weeks is very clear and the number of infections is growing, probably also driven by internal gatherings for the Thanksgiving holiday.
