Coronavirus Pandemic Situation Report #130

Global Highlights:

· The World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting that there have been 756,291,327 confirmed cases of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and 6,841,640 deaths.

· Globally, over 6.7 million new cases and over 64,000 deaths were reported in the last 28 days (January 16 to 12 February 12), a decrease of 92% and 47%, respectively, compared to the previous 28 days.

· Current trends in reported COVID-19 cases are underestimates of the true number of global infections and reinfections as shown by prevalence surveys:

o This is partly due to the reduction in testing and delays in reporting in many countries.

o Data presented in this report may be incomplete and should, therefore, be interpreted with caution.

· Regional Reports of Cases and Deaths:

o At the regional level, the number of newly reported 28-day cases decreased or remained stable across all WHO regions: the Western Pacific Region (-96%), the South-East Asia Region (-59%), the European Region (-52%), the Region of the Americas (-46%), the African Region (-23%), and the Eastern Mediterranean Region (-2%).

o The number of newly reported 28-day deaths decreased or remained stable across four regions: the South-East Asia Region (-60%), the Western Pacific Region (-58%), the European Region (-50%), and the Region of the Americas (-1%); while reported deaths numbers increased in two WHO regions: the African Region (+22%), and the Eastern Mediterranean Region (+33%).

· As of February 14th, a total of 13,195,777,466 vaccine doses have been administered.


United States of America Highlights:

· The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting that there have been 102,736,819 cases and 1,110,364 deaths.

· The daily averages being reported are:

o 282,827 new cases

o 3,171 new deaths

o There are now 21,442 current hospitalizations and there are 3,600 new admissions.

· The CDC has launched a website that will allow individuals to search for free COVID-19 testing sites near them.

· Vaccination Updates:

o People with at Least 1 Dose (Age 5+ Years): 85.6% of the population

o Fully Vaccinated People (Age 5+ Years): 73.3% of the population

o People with an Updated Booster (Age 5+ Years): 16.8% of the population

o To find the nearest COVID-19 vaccine site individuals can enter their zip code here.

· The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary provided notice via a letter that the COVID-19 public health emergency declaration will end on May 11th:

o This decision was reached based on current trends regarding COVID-19 in the United States, which include a 92% decrease in daily reported cases, an 80% decline in deaths, and a nearly 80% decrease in new hospitalizations compared to data from January 2022.

· The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will also be ending the Federal disaster declarations for COVID-19 on May 11th:

o FEMA has provided more than $104 billion in assistance to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as non-profits and survivors:

ü Almost $60 billion of these funds went to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, and eligible private non-profits for more than 23,000 emergency projects.

ü Another $2.9 billion was awarded in funeral assistance for more than 400,000 individuals and families.
