4 Americans are getting vaccinated and one in four of them are infected, a new study finds.
The CDC says there are more than 16 million people with symptoms of COVID.
And while the virus has slowed, the number of Americans infected has continued to climb.
What’s going on?
The CDC reported that 2 in 4 people infected with COID-19 have tested positive, up from 1 in 7 last year.
But the numbers are still small compared to other recent outbreaks.
In 2015, about 7.2 million Americans were infected with the coronavirus.
The latest count, from late March, is slightly higher, at 6.7 million.
So the number is still a fraction of the total, but it’s enough to raise alarm bells.
So why is this happening?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says COVID is an “important public health issue” because it’s spread through contact with water and food contaminated with contaminated animals.
The agency says people are also more likely to be infected by mosquitoes, which transmit the virus via the saliva they secrete when they bite.
Who’s getting vaccinated?
According to the CDC, 1 in 5 Americans are currently getting vaccinated.
This is the first time the number has surpassed 1 in 10, a milestone that would be seen as a great success.
But there’s a catch: The CDC doesn’t have enough people to test all of them, and the virus isn’t as spreadable in the United States as it was in previous outbreaks.
Will they know when they’ve gotten sick?
The latest CDC figures show that about 4 in 10 Americans have no symptoms.
So while they’re not at higher risk, the virus could still be spreading through the population.
Why is it happening now?
The coronaviruses are mostly confined to the United Kingdom, and because of that, it’s been hard to get people vaccinated.
And while COVID hasn’t been found in the U.S. since March, that hasn’t stopped lawmakers from trying to pass legislation that would make it easier to get vaccinated.
That legislation, called the Public Health Emergency of the Century Act, passed the House last week, but died in the Senate.
If you think this is a big deal, think again.
COVID doesn’t cause much of a problem in the developed world.
It is still relatively rare in the rest of the world, and it has been confined to Europe, the Caribbean, and parts of the U: Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, and Senegal.
How is it spread?
It’s spread by direct contact with infected animal droppings, and people who eat contaminated animals or are close to them are most at risk.
People who don’t get vaccinated are at even greater risk.
Where are they at?
People who are infected with an older, more-recent strain of the virus can get infected more easily in the air and water.
People with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable to getting the virus from contaminated animals, and there is some evidence that COVID can be transmitted via contact with blood.
The virus is particularly dangerous to pregnant women, the elderly, people with weakened immunity, and others who are immune-compromised.
Are there any plans to expand the program?
While it’s difficult to say how many people will get vaccinated this year, some are pushing for more vaccination.
In addition to the current wave of vaccinations, the CDC says it will expand the vaccine eligibility for the 2019-2020 school year.
Is there a cure for COVID?
Doctors are still unsure how the virus will spread once it has recovered from its initial pandemic, and scientists are still trying to determine exactly what the virus does to the body.
The CDC and others are working to find a way to prevent it from spreading, and to develop new vaccines and treatments that will kill the virus.
