Continuous COVID-19

With California reporting a new daily high for new COVID-19 cases, 4,515 new cases on Sunday, the continual concern for virus spread should still be at the top of everyone’s priority list. Over just the last two weeks The United States has seen a 15% case increase. Typical travel destinations in the southeast and on the west coast seem to be the most dramatically affected. The work we have all put in to “flatten the curve” may all be for naught if we, as a nation, continue to jump back to the norm too early. Hospitals are feeling the effects of the dramatic spike in cases already. The White House is making efforts to concentrate on stocking up supplies to combat a potential COVID-19 case rise this coming Fall as lower temperatures may increase the spread.

On Sunday, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported the single largest rise in COVID-19 cases during any one day with 183,020. This latest addition puts the global case load at just under 9 million, with close to half a million deaths. India also continues to see high stress due to COVID-19 and overcrowding medical facilities. It reported a single day high of over 15,000 new cases on Sunday. Medical facilities have been forced to turn down medical care due to the unusually high case load and lack of space and resources. There has been an uptick in cases since Cyclone Amphan struck land just a few weeks ago, forcing people to prematurely pack into close quarters and in less than ideal conditions. We all need to continue to be diligent and continue the social practices that worked so well for the initial “flattening of the curve”.
