As Christmastime travelers disperse across the country and Americans prepare for yet another long weekend, Covid-19 numbers continue to soar, according to the company.

According to data released by Johns Hopkins University on Sunday, the United States is now experiencing an average of 198,404 new Covid-19 cases per day. Compared to the previous week, this is the highest level of employment since January 19, representing a 47 percent increase.

In an interview with CNN on Sunday, CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner predicted that the country would see half a million cases per day — easily — within the next week to 10 days.

According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 71,000 Americans had been admitted to hospitals because of Covid-19 as of Sunday.

According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Infectious Diseases, an average of 1,408 Americans died from Covid-19 each day during the week ending Sunday. This represents a 17 percent increase over the previous week.

When it comes to the highly contagious Omicron variant, Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN on Monday that “we’re certainly going to continue to see a surge (in cases) for a while.”

Small gatherings of fully vaccinated people will be safe on New Year’s Eve, according to Fauci, who is looking ahead to Friday’s celebration. However, he advised people to avoid hosting large gatherings where they were unsure of the vaccination status of all attendees.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, advised people not to attend New Year’s Eve parties where they had 30, 40, or 50 people in attendance and did not know the status of their vaccinations. “I would strongly advise staying away from that this year,” he said.

“There will be other years in which to accomplish this. This year, however, is different.”
