California and Florida are the two states with the most severe epidemic in the United States. Novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in two states have exceeded 7000 cases in the past 24 hours, according to data from local public health departments. In addition, according to the latest data from the Institute of health statistics and evaluation of the University of Washington, people in many parts of the United States are frequently going out, which has almost reached the level before the outbreak of the epidemic, and the situation is not optimistic.
according to the public health department of California, 8436 new cases were confirmed in a single day in California on July 7, with a total of 538416 confirmed cases. So far, California has more than 10000 deaths.
previously, the California government admitted that there were cases of missing reports due to problems in the California virus test data system. In response, California health officials said on the 7th that a technical failure in the California virus test data system has been fixed, but it may take 48 hours to update the data. In the absence of timely information, relevant departments can not carry out strong contact tracking or health testing. In addition, novel coronavirus pneumonia cases may be recorded because of the system failure, with up to 300 thousand medical records being overloaded.
according to the data released by the health department of Florida, in the past 24 hours, there were 7719 new confirmed cases and 180 new deaths in Florida. As the number of confirmed cases continues to increase, the pressure on the Florida health care system has not been relieved. According to the latest data, 47 hospitals in Florida have no beds in ICU, while 31 hospitals have only one bed in ICU.
on July 7, Murray, director of the Institute of health statistics and evaluation at the University of Washington, said that mobile phone data from multiple regions in the United States showed that people in many places in the United States were moving out frequently, almost in line with the level before the outbreak of the epidemic. This situation is not optimistic, more activities also means more virus transmission. Novel coronavirus pneumonia is estimated to be nearly 300 thousand deaths in the United States by December 1st. If 95% of Americans wear masks, that number could be reduced to more than 228000.
