President Joe Biden issued a warning on Thursday that the Omicron strain of the coronavirus will begin to spread far more quickly in the United States, urging Americans to get vaccinated or strengthen their vaccinations.
“The only genuine defence is to get your injection,” he warned, warning that the unvaccinated will face “a winter of terrible disease and death.” He said as the United States grows increasingly concerned about the latest chapter of the coronavirus pandemic’s horror.
The average number of new cases of infection each day as of December 1 was 86,000. On December 14, it had risen to 117,000, a 35 percent increase.
G7 health ministers appealed for international cooperation against the Omicron strain, which they described as the “greatest contemporary threat to world public health.”
The new variant-related outbreak has expanded across the globe, prompting additional European countries to impose travel restrictions. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Preventions, the United States, the world’s worst-affected country, is currently experiencing 1,150 Covid-19 deaths every day.
Biden assured Americans a few weeks ago that the new type of the flu was no cause for concern. At the close of a meeting on the pandemic on Thursday, Obama called reporters in to deliver a clear message to Americans: those who have been vaccinated should get a booster, and those who have not been vaccinated should receive their vaccinations.
According to the Johns Hopkins University tracker, the United States passed 800,000 Covid deaths on Tuesday. This is more people than certain states, such as Alaska and North Dakota.
Approximately 450,000 individuals have died from Covid this year, the majority of whom were unvaccinated, despite the fact that effective and free vaccines became available in the spring.
