The tense situation with the pandemic is also observed in Texas.
The indicator of the average daily incidence of blood at home in Florida has reached 21 thousand cases in light of the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus. This is evidenced by the data published by the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Over the past week, only twice the number of cases of infection fell below 20 thousand, while on August 10, the number of new cases reached the highest level in the country recently – 24,753. “Over the past week, more coronavirus diseases were registered in Florida than in the 30 states with the lowest infection rate combined,” Jeff Zients, the White House coordinator for combating the spread of coronavirus, said at a briefing on Thursday.
The tense situation with the pandemic is also observed in Texas, where the incidence has increased from 2 thousand to more than 12 thousand cases daily since the beginning of July. “Texas and Florida now account for about 40% of all hospitalizations [with coronavirus] in the country,” Zients said.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 36.2 million cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the United States, more than 618.6 thousand people died. The country ranks first in the world in both indicators. The country has recently introduced additional measures to combat the coronavirus due to the spread of the delta strain. According to the CDC, it accounts for more than 83% of cases of coronavirus infection in the country.
