Coronavirus deaths recurred last week and killed 658 people a day, according to statistics since July.
New cases of COVID-19 in United States declined for the third week in a row, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), amid a shortage of vaccines that adults fear could hamper efforts to increase immunity.
According to a CDC report, the country on Monday recorded 52 days a week 52,528 new cases, down 16.2% last week.
The death toll from COVID-19 dropped 8.2 percent last week, to 658 deaths daily, the same as the number of deaths in July last year.
About one-third of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated and just over 43% have received less COVID-19 vaccine, according to the CDC.
But there are concerns about a recent vaccination, which has dropped by 10% last week.
Asked what race the nation could afford, President Joe Biden said on Monday, “I think by the end of the summer we will be very different from where we are now … My request to everyone – get vaccinated now, please.”
More than 32 million Americans have taken COVID-19 since the virus first spread last year and more than 577,000 have died – the highest in the world, according to a study by Johns Hopkins University.
But the recent reduction in risk has led some countries and local leaders to lift some restrictions on coronavirus.
On Monday, the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut announced that they would lift a number of bans on businesses, including shops, grocery stores and gymnasiums, effective May 19.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the ruling was due to a slight drop in the COVID-19 test and in the hospital.
The number of New York cases of coronavirus infection dropped by 50% last month, and hospitals fell by almost 40% immediately, he said Monday.
“New York has made great strides,” Cuomo said. “It’s time to change the way science and knowledge have been made.”
Amusement parks, salons and offices are some of the businesses that will soon no longer have government regulations, although all businesses may impose their own restrictions.
“We have been able to announce the lifting of business restrictions because of a state-of-the-art national program that benefits all Connecticut residents, as well as New York and New Jersey neighbors,” Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont told Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.
The reopening of May 19 in New York coincides with the plan that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a few days ago to reopen the city on July 1.
On Monday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced he had signed a code of conduct that suspended and suspended all COVID-19 emergency regulations, saying the most common vaccine was safe to do so.
