Michigan becomes the epicenter of the new COVID-19


Lansing, Michigan — Michigan has become the epicenter of the latest coronavirus in the United States, a mystery.

“I don’t know what’s going on here. Michigan is just one of the biggest blows,” said Scott Niswonger.

Dr. Meredith Hill, director of the emergency department at Sparrow Hospital, said the increase was more dramatic than in the last two weeks. “I think there’s obviously more community now,” she said.

Niswonger, a patient with COVID-19, said his son may have been infected at his day care center. He has been attending Lansing’s Sparrow Hospital since Friday.

“We all went and tested and everything came back positive. Since then it has been a downhill spiral,” said Niswonger. “It feels like someone. A £ 500 guy was just sitting on my chest and I couldn’t push him away.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced the latest surge in COVID-19 cases nationwide. Driven by a young American.. One theory: the possibility of reopening school and linking to after-school sports.

“Many outbreaks of youth are learning to be related to youth sports and extracurricular activities,” said Dr. Rochelle Warrensky, director of the CDC. “The CDC guidance limits these activities. Should be. ”

The number of B.1.1.7 variants that occurred in the United Kingdom has also skyrocketed and is now believed to account for one-third of all cases in the United States.

“We know that B.1.1.7 is more contagious and is more contagious in the 50-100% range, especially in different age groups who have not yet been infected.” Walensky said.

But there is good news nationwide. Four million vaccinations were reported on Saturday. According to the CDC, at least 23% of US adults are fully vaccinated and 40% are vaccinated at least once.

As of Monday in Michigan, anyone over the age of 16 is vaccinated and has joined 27 other states to expand their eligibility.

“You’re very excited because the vaccine is out, and it’s a little disappointing to see the spread outpacing the vaccine,” Hill said. “We support each other and try to stay as positive as possible.”
