U.S. Daily New Infections, Highest of 300,000 People on the 8th of Last Month
White House Response Team “Begin spreading in winter…the level before Thanksgiving”
“Decreased inpatients… 3,000 deaths per day are expected to decrease soon”
The White House response team hoped that as the number of new corona19 infections in the United States is on a downward trajectory, the number of deaths will decrease within the next few weeks.
The variable for further spread is the mutant virus, which advises practicing social distancing and overwriting masks.
This is a report from Washington correspondent Taewook Kang.
The number of corona19 infections in the U.S. started to decline after recording a high of 300,000 people at the beginning of last month.
Since the 26th of last month, it has maintained over 140,000 cases, which has fallen to half the level from the highest.
The White House response team believes it has returned to pre-Thanksgiving levels, when the winter spread began.
As a result, the number of hospitalized patients is decreasing and the number of deaths, which once exceeded 4,000, is expected to decrease soon.

But he warned that the number of infections is still very high and that mutations continue to circulate, so you should not be vigilant.
The emergence of new variations across the country could threaten the positive trend.
Director Anthony Pouch emphasized the need to continue to follow the guidelines for social distancing.
I also advised overwriting two masks for extra protection.

Coordinator Jeff Giants says it will open two large vaccination centers in California, the most affected area.
In addition, starting next week, we will provide 1.5 million doses of vaccine per week throughout the United States, including general pharmacies.
As the White House response team has repeatedly emphasized expanding vaccination as the best way to prevent the spread of mutations, the supply of vaccines in the US is likely to accelerate further.
