December becomes the most dangerous month in the United States. Pandemic After the introduction of COVID-19

April was the most deadly month with over 55,000 deaths in the pandemic

As 2020 is approaching its close, December is the deadliest month in the nation, taking over 63, 000 lives since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

The previous record, set in April with more than 55,000 deaths, exceeded on 23rd December, according to the COVID Monitoring Programme, as holiday travelers and cases continued to grow.

In the New York Times, 188,908 new cases were registered on average in the United States last week.

While health experts and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were advising against travel, over 1.1 million people were screened by the Transportation Safety administration on Wednesday, the day before Christmas.

A daily TSA study reveals that 1,191,123 people were screened nationally Thursday by the TSA spokesman Lisa Farbstein, the highest flight number since 16 March, with 1257,823 people screened.

The December deaths are news that the nation felt a surge of optimism earlier this month when two Viral Vaccines were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (one made by Moderna and one Pfizer-BioNTech). The two doses are required to achieve 95 percent effectiveness and are given several weeks apart each.

On Dec. 14, the first new-yorker in the U.S. to have the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was a vital nurse in Queens.

Dr. Anthony Fauci got on live television his first injection of Moderna vaccine in preparation for the holidays. And Sunday he said he had no side effects except a short acha in his arm after he got the shot while speaking to CNN State of the Nation.

“The only thing I had was 6-10 hours following the vaccine I felt a little bit of an ache in my arm that lasted maybe 24 hours, a little bit more,” he said. “I then went away and felt no deleterious consequences other than that.

Fauci, 79, said, “It really was fine, it was almost as good or better than a vaccine for influenza. I might feel a little bit sad if I boost because the immune system would revive, but in only three weeks I’ll have it.”.”

Fauci also voiced fear in his interview with CNN that COVID-19 cases are expected to continue to increase around the country after the holidays.

“The reason that I’m concerned is that we very well might see a post-seasonal, in the sense of Christmas and New Years, surge,” he explained.

“And as I’ve described it as a surge upon a surge because if you look at the slope, the incline of cases we’ve experienced as we’ve gone into the late fall and soon to be early winter, it really is quite troubling.”

Fauci added that the country is “at a very critical point,” “If you put more pressure on the system by what might be a post seasonal surge because of the traveling and the likely congregating for the good warm purposes of being together for the holidays, it’s very tough for people not to do that. And even though we advise not to, it’s going to happen.”

Since the onset of the pandemic, more than 19,092,600 people in the US became contaminated by the coronavirus and at least 332,600 die according to the New York Times.
