The United States is going downhill again, and coronavirus positivity rates are increasing. Despite the short success in dealing with the crisis, the nation is approaching a death toll of 200,000 people, and the infection rates in 31 states are increasing.
According to the statistics from Johns Hopkins University, the country is doing much worse than the previous weeks, reporting a spike of over 10% in most of the states.
Only four states have a decrease in COIVD-19 cases, and those are Michigan, Hawaii, Delaware, and Louisiana.
The positive results from the diagnostic tests are skyrocketing, and scientists are warning on a worse situation than so far.
Medical experts fear the upcoming autumn and the lower temperatures that bring flu and more patients.
The main concern is mixing the symptoms of the seasonal flu and the coronavirus that is still relatively new for the doctors.
Another issue that’s worrying the health officials is the worsening of the mental health of people with pre-existing problems and causing depression in individuals whose lives had drastically changed.
According to researchers, the “data suggest that individuals who continued working during this early phase of the pandemic were less depressed than individuals who were not working, even though they were at greater risk for contracting the virus.”
