In July, the Harvard Health Institute released an interactive map showing the risk of coronavirus infection based on daily new cases per 100,000 people. At the time the map was released, three countries were in the red. As of Monday, that number has risen to 13.
According to Harvard, the 13 states are states that require full home stay orders, while an additional 23 need to consider them.
The card has four colors – green, yellow, orange and red – to demonstrate county and state risk. The map shows 13 states – North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, Utah, Missouri, Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Nebraska and Wyoming ̵
“If you look at the color-coded map of cases and conditions that are rising, you see states in the Northwest and the Midwest, it’s going in the wrong direction right now,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “So, if there’s something we need to do, we need to double down on implementing the public health measures we’ve been talking about for so long, which keep them away, no crowds, wear masks, wash their hands, do things outside. as opposed to inside to reduce these numbers. “
As these conditions begin to get colder, Fauci is concerned that the virus will become even more complicated to contain.
“We are entering the cool months of autumn and finally the cold months of winter,” Fautsi said. “And it’s just a recipe for a real problem if we don’t get things under control before embarking on this seasonal challenge.”
According to the Harvard Health Institute, when the areas are shaded in red, home stay orders become necessary.
Contrary to Harvard’s recommendations, Fauci says stopping can be avoided.
“I think people think that when we talk about public health, we talk about exclusion,” Fauci said. “Let’s get this off the table.” We are not talking about exclusion. We are talking about simple public health measures, as simple as they may sound, they are really quite effective. And this is what we say over and over again, universal wearing of masks, observe physical distance, above all avoid crowds and general settings. “
No country is green.
Two states that were red in early summer, Florida and Arizona, dropped out of the red. Florida, now in orange, ranks 28th for most coronavirus infections. Arizona is now number 38 in the United States for COVID-19 infections.
In general, the worst effects of the coronavirus have shifted from northeast in spring to south in summer and to the upper plains and the Northern Rockies now in autumn.
There are currently 158 COVIDs and 233 COVIDs in North Dakota.
A number of countries, even those outside the “red” zones, see a record number of cases. Ohio set a record number of registered cases on Friday with 1840. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican for a first term, expressed concern at a news conference last Friday.
“We have the power to slow it down. I know everyone is tired, but we have to learn to live with it. Distance and masks are essential, ”DeWine told Ohio.
