As the presidential elections are round the corner the cases are been increasing lately.
According to a tally of johns Hopkins University,More than nine million total cases have been reported in the US.
Twenty-one states are experiencing outbreaks, with some of the most severe in the states that will be key in deciding the 2020 election.
While on Thursday it recorded that 1,004 Americans have died, according to a New York Times tracker, which shows the full case tally has already climbed above 9 million and a separate tally aggregated by Johns Hopkins University has the number at 8.95 million.
Few of the possible reasons for increasing number of cases could be:
More number of testing
If the government increases the testing for covid cases then probably they can detect a hight number of mild cases.The case fatality rate is a fraction calculated by dividing the number of fatal cases by the total number of cases. More so than for many other fatal diseases, a large number of COVID infections are so mild that they are never identified. According to this theory, change in the case fatality rate is a matter of perception: the fraction of people that die is going down because more widespread testing results in a greater fraction of mild and asymptomatic infections being included in the denominator.
The time between when a person first starts to exhibit symptoms and dies is quite variable. On average, it is about two weeks. If a person is infected by corona but earlier due to the lack of understanding its symptoms and carelessness it easily get spread.
