Lockdown waiver raises infections in US, thousands fear death in future

Lockdown waiver raises infections in US, thousands fear death in future
U.S. health officials have warned that corona infections are on the rise in parts of the country except New York City that are being exempted from the lockdown.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Corona infections are on the rise in parts of the country except New York City that are being exempted from lockdowns, US health officials have warned. 

SEMrushHe says if the lockdown is not stopped and the rate of infection is not reduced, thousands of people could die in the future. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 20,000 people are infected and more than 1,000 are dying every day in the United States.

Linda Ouch, director of the Kansas County Health Department, said no one was misled. The virus is still fully active and may spread more quickly than in previous weeks. The New York metropolitan area, with a population of 20 million, is most affected by the epidemic in the northern suburbs of the city, Long Island and the North. One-third of the 70,000 deaths in the country have occurred in these areas. However, when it comes to cities where there is still a lockdown, new infections in the United States appear to be declining. An analysis of the data showed that the rate of new cases per five days fell from 9.3 per one lakh to 8.6 on April 13. However, when the New York area is excluded, the story changes completely. Without it, the rate of new infections in the United States would have risen from 6.2 per 100,000 people to 7.5 in the same period. The number of daily deaths in the New York area has dropped in recent weeks. In the United States, excluding New York, the death rate per 50,000 people in five days fell from 1.86 per cent to 1.82 per cent on April 20.
