More than 95 percent of counties in the United States today reported high rates of transmission of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC's Covid-19 data tracker revealed the high spread of the disease, which means that 100 new cases were reported for every 100 people in the last seven days. The United States reported an increase in cases of the respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, largely driven by the highly infectious delta variant of the pathogen.
Most recent hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19 occurred among the unvaccinated population, health authorities warned.
In fact, President Joe Biden considered that the current outbreak is attributable to the "pandemic of the unvaccinated."
While 75 percent of the country's adults were immunized against Covid-19, at least partially, the White House announced, a goal that the president could not meet by July 4, when he expected to announce 'independence on the pandemic. '
According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden's main medical adviser, the delta variant is 'dominant in more than 99 percent' of infections throughout the country, which last Tuesday exceeded 40 million cases of Covid-19 .
More than 647 thousand people have lost their lives since the beginning of the pandemic in the United States, a country with the worst figures in the world.
