Covid Cases Are Rising In More Than Half Of U.S. States, Despite Ramp-up In Vacc by Annabella11: 2:31am On Apr 15, 2021
As U.S. Covid cases rise, the country is also administering vaccine shots at the swiftest pace ever. Cases are on the rise in 27 states, with Michigan continuing to lead the nation in daily new infections per capita.
Following more than 70,000 coronavirus cases reported on Monday, the seven-day average of daily new cases in the U.S. is 68,960, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. That figure is up 7% from one week ago.
Michigan again reported the highest level of daily new infections on a per capita basis, according to a CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins data. On Monday, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the state should “shut things down” as it deals with the surge and that a boost in Covid-19 vaccinations alone will not stop the spread of the virus.
Michigan is recording nearly 7,300 average daily new cases, close to the state’s pandemic high of more than 8,300 per day in December. Hospitalizations and deaths are also on the rise in the state.
The seven-day average of daily reported Covid deaths in the U.S. is 962, Johns Hopkins data show.
The latest trend in the death toll is being impacted by a bulk data release of about 1,800 deaths from Oklahoma, which occurred because the Oklahoma State Department of Health is transitioning to data reporting guidelines in line with CDC requirements. Those deaths are all currently being reported for April 7, even if they occurred previously.
Prior to this reporting anomaly, the daily Covid death toll in the U.S. had been trending downward from the record levels seen in January.
