The Omicron variant is said to be less lethal. However, the number of new corona patients in the United States has reached record levels. More than 11 lakh patients came here on Monday.

At the same time, the number of hospitalized patients has reached the highest level.

Earlier, on January 3, more than 1.3 million new cases were reported in the United States. The growing number of patients indicates that the rapidly spreading Omicron has wreaked havoc in the United States. Considered a worrying variant, Omicron has the highest number of hospitalizations in the United States. This number has reached record levels in the last three weeks. The number was 1,32,051 in January last year.

The total number of corona-infected patients in the United States reached 60 million on Sunday, according to Johns Hopkins University. Since January 2020, 8,37,594 people have died in the country.

Hospital staff shortages, operations halted -

Due to the highly contagious omicron type, patient admissions in the United States are increasing rapidly. As a result, surgeries of other patients have been stopped in many hospitals here. According to statistics, more than 2,130 patients are infected every day for every one million people in the United States. In other words, in the case of the Corona epidemic, the United States is now following in Britain's footsteps.

In France, on the other hand, there has been a worrying increase in the number of corona patients. The situation here is similar to that in Britain. In the last seven days, France has seen an average of 4,000 patients per million people.
