100,000 doses of new crown vaccine in one state in the United States will expire, experts advise people to pay attention to mutated virus vaccination
Overseas Network, July 29. According to US media reports, although the "Delta" new coronavirus variant is spreading in the United States, the demand for new coronavirus vaccines in the United States continues to decline. In South Carolina, about 100,000 doses of vaccines stored in a medical institution are about to expire. Doctors urge the public to actively vaccinate and be aware of the danger of the mutant strain.
Newsweek reported on the 28th that in a South Carolina medical service facility called Prism, about 100,000 doses of the new crown vaccine are still unused and will expire before the fall and will have to be destroyed. . The agency’s head of vaccination, Rick Scott, said: “We hope to use these vaccines as soon as possible, rather than wait until they expire. But we hope that demand will rise.”
In the past week, the average daily increase in the number of diagnoses in South Carolina has exceeded 1,200. Expert Helmut Abbrecht pointed out that the "Delta" variant is the main culprit for the increase in cases in the state, and its transmission rate is doubling every week.
"Almost all hospitalized patients and deaths have not been vaccinated." He said, "But the'Delta' variant strain not only causes infections in people who have completed the vaccination, but even if the infected person has only mild or common symptoms, the variant strain can also be infected in people. A large number of viruses are produced in the body. This means that if you sneeze or cough, you can spread the virus." (Overseas Net Zhao Jianxing)
