The spread of the Covid-19 virus is declining in the United States, but several parts of the nation still struggle as hospitals are flooded with coronavirus patients.

Montana reported a new maximum number of hospitalizations within a week. The state reported about 533 new Covid-19 patients hospitalized as of Wednesday.

The numbers are even higher than observed in November when the Covid-19 vaccines were not readily available.

The US Department of Health and Human Services states, “the number of ICU beds used for Covid-19 patients is highest in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming.”

The reports are out now when the vaccine advisers of the US Food and Drug Administration plan to meet on Thursday. The meeting will be on for discussing Moderna’s application for their booster dose.

A recommendation vote will be there after the meeting.

But now, as there are still hotspots emerging throughout the United States due to the spread of the contagious Delta variant, experts believe that the administration’s current focus should be the initial vaccination of those still left unvaccinated.

Several doctors and officials believe that- the pandemic will persist till citizens are unvaccinated with their initial shots.

Dr. Steven Nemerson, chief clinical officer for Saint Alphonsus Health System, Boise, Idaho, said, ” It is sad to say that the Covid-19 virus will stay for long.” He announced that we lost the war against the pandemic. 

He further added, ” the reason why we are losing the battle is that we are unable to vaccinate enough citizens. With such low vaccination rates, we can never completely eradicate this deadly disease.”

 The funeral homes in Idaho are running out of storage for bodies. The condition is overwhelming as the number of deaths per day is spiking with every passing day. 

During a briefing by the state Department of Health and Welfare, Nemerson said that the United States will have to face the recurring episodes of the pandemic due to the nation’s inability to vaccinate enough of its citizens.

Amidst all the bad, a ray of hope can be seen as the hospitals in Saint Alphonsus reported a decline in the hospitalization rate. The pandemic has had a dual impact on the medical staff. Doctors and nurses have been working restlessly with no visible end to the pandemic insight.

 Explaining the plight of the doctors and nurses, Nemerson said, ” we too are humans, and we also have a limit of how much we can work. Doctors have been working restlessly under pressure and immense stress for almost two years now.” He added, ” The workload and the working conditions disheartens us, even more, when people come out questioning us about what we are doing.”

Despite the visibly worsening condition, citizens are reluctant to take their vaccine shots. Idaho and Montana are among the 15 states that have not vaccinated, even 50 percent of their total population.

Analysis by CNN shows that the average rate of deaths due to Covid-19 was fourfold in the ten least vaccinated states in the United States compared to the ten most vaccinated states.
