The US has always been on top for the coronavirus count, and this week, the united states are back in the limelight. Out of all those states, only three have reported a decline in the number of new cases than the last week’s 5-day average. And this is the first time this average achieved such a high number after mid-August.
The Report across the States
As per the Saturday night report, the count of new cases has dropped in South Carolina, Texas, and Missouri. Besides, 21 states have reported a rise in the number of cases over the same period. A little over 50% have reported a steady number. The 21 states that reported an increase include Indiana, Idaho, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Kentucky, Connecticut, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Ohio, New Mexico, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Vermont, and Pennsylvania. On the 5-day week ending October 3, the daily average was measured at 46,500. As per Johns Hopkins University, this is the highest number since the week ending August 18.
The rise in coronavirus count has come after President Trump joining the 7 million+ US people tested COVID-19 positive.
Coronavirus in Wisconsin
Wisconsin’s health service department has reported a daily average of 2,892 new cases on Saturday. Before this, the earlier record count was recorded earlier in the same week. The governor of the state advised residents to return to the virus-fighting basics.
Speaking on the masks, Governor Tony said that the surges don’t point out that masks are not functional. He also added that for the masks to work, everyone should wear them.
Besides, other health departments have also issued an emergency COVID-19 alert. The cause of this alert is the increasing number of coronavirus cases leading to more hospitalizations and deaths. The alert also accompanied a warning, according to which this surge is significantly impacting resources and the ability to contact tracing new resources.
COVID-19 on the Rise Across the US
As per the new daily cases reported by the health officials, the seven-day average is around 42,400. Although the count is less than the peak in July, it’s still 20% higher than the average on September 12. However, according to health officials, this count is still high enough if the nation wants to avoid a surge during the upcoming winters.
