Rising CoV numbers continue to worry authorities in the US. Over the past few days, the U.S. has averaged just over 137,000 new infections per day, up nearly 12 percent from the previous week, U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) chief Rochelle Walensky said yesterday.

The number of people hospitalized with Covid-19 was about the same as the previous week, she said, while the number of deaths rose 23 percent.

Progress on vaccinations
At the same time, however, there has been progress in the vaccination campaign, said White House CoV Coordinator Jeffrey Zients. “The biggest gains have been in states that were behind in vaccinations – Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.”

More people in general got vaccinated for the first time last month than in the previous two months combined, he said. “That’s a critical advance.” To date, 51.5 percent of the U.S. population has been conclusively vaccinated. About 330 million people live in the country.

Fauci promotes treatment with antibodies from the lab
Immunologist Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, promoted treatment for Covid-19 with monoclonal antibodies. These are produced in the lab and are designed to knock out the virus after infection.

“The bottom line is that this is a very effective measure against Covid-19. It is underutilized, and we strongly recommend that it be used to its fullest extent,” Fauci said.
