US, Brazil saw a new spike in coronavirus cases | Instant News

The United States and Brazil have seen a spike in new coronavirus cases, according to reports on Sunday. Reuters quoted health researchers as saying that the drop in COVID-19 deaths in Manaus, Brazil, meant the city had achieved herd immunity. But with a spike in new infections, they now believe antibodies don’t last more than a few months.

“Something that is evident in our study – and it has also been demonstrated by other groups – is that antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 decay rapidly, months after infection. This is clearly the case in Manaus,” said Leis Buss. saying. Buss is co-author of a study by the University of Sao Paulo’s Institute of Tropical Medicine.

Coronavirus: Brazil reports a record 33,274 cases in 24 hours | Instant News

Brazil has surpassed Russia to become the second country in the world with the highest case of the Coronavirus novel, second only to the US, after reporting more than 33,000 infections, a record high, on Saturday.

According to Reuters, Brazil’s health ministry said the country on Saturday registered 33,274 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total to 4.98,440. The death toll also rose to 28,834, with 956 new deaths in the past 24 hours, the ministry said. Despite the sharp increase in cases, some states plan to ease locking, ignoring health experts’ warnings that the worst is yet to come, Reuters reported.

‘The US suffered 1L death early May’
Meanwhile, an analysis of overall deaths during the pandemic shows that the US probably reached 1.00,000 milestones three weeks ago. The country said that the number of people reported to have died of COVID-19 infection surpassed 1,000,000 this week.

Between March 1 and May 9, the country recorded about 1,01,600 excess deaths, or deaths beyond the normally estimated number for the year, according to an analysis conducted for The Washington Post by a research team led by the Yale School of Public Health. That figure reflects about 26,000 more deaths than those attributed to COVID-19 on death certificates during that period, according to federal data.

1.05,500 ‘excessive death’
26,000 deaths were not always caused directly by the virus. They can also include people who have died from epidemics but not from the disease itself, such as those who are afraid of seeking medical help for unrelated diseases. Adding or reducing other categories of death, such as motor vehicle accidents, also affects the calculation.

The “excess deaths” analysis is a standard tool used by epidemiologists to measure the exact number of deaths from infectious diseases and other widespread disasters. The researchers estimate that the number of excess deaths between March 1 and May 9 is most likely between 97,500 and 105,500. “It is clear that the burden is a little higher than the total amount reported,” said Daniel Weinberger, professor of epidemiology from the same university who led the analysis.
