The U.S. Sets a New Global Daily Record of Over 1M COVID-19 Cases

The U.S. Sets a New Global Daily Record of Over 1M COVID-19 Cases

The Index Today

There is about more than 1 million people in the U.S. (1,003,043 to be exact) were diagnosed with Covid-19 on Monday evening as a large number of Omicron cases badly affected the life of an American. As of the moment the existing COVID-19 cases in the US is at 15,4 Million.

The highly mutated variant Omicron was the culprit that drove the U.S. cases to a record, the most by a large percentage that any country has ever reported.

The number of cases recorded last Monday more than twice the case count seen in any country at any time since the pandemic began for more than two years ago. The highest number outside the U.S. is when India’s surge cases of delta variant that reached in the number of 414,000 people last May 7, 2021.

The surge of the COVID-19 cases in the US sounded an alarm that could lead the authorities to think over in terms of amending some measures put in place to help guide the nation through the latest peak of COVID-19 outbreak in the area.
While the officials of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that they shortened the isolation period to five days for asymptomatic people who test positive for Covid-19, the agency may add that they should get a negative test result before venturing out again.

The COVID-19 outbreak in the US also caused companies to stop their operations in the office, well-known companies like Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. recently declared that their staff will be working from home until further notice.

The silver lining is that deaths from COVID-19 haven’t similarly increased compared to the previous years. One of the good news is also that the early studies show that the omicron variant spreads faster but causes milder symptoms compared to the earlier strains.
