As over 2.5 million cases of COVID-19 have been documented in the United States alone, numbers continue to rise as the country begins to re-open. Among those that have contracted the virus, there have been 125,000 confirmed deaths as a result of complications from COVID-19.
Seven states, including Arizona, Arkansas, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas are reporting new highs as the number of new infections continues to rise across the South and the West. In the final week of June, more than 800 deaths from COVID-19 were reported in a single day, which marks the first time fatalities have increased since June 7th.
The end of June has also brought the nation’s seven-day average of daily COVID-19 cases to 31,172. This number has increased by more than 34% in just one week.
In response to inconsistencies in reopening plans, Los Angeles County has asked residents to contact the Public Health Department if they recognize a business that isn’t following county protocols. As a result, over 1,000 residents were found to be in violation of reopening standards.
As hospitals brace for a second spike in cases, it’s important to note that a staggering 18% of healthcare personnel that was exposed to COVID-19 have contracted the virus so far.
One of the best ways to protect healthcare personnel during these unprecedented times is by implementing the use of quality, reusable protective medical gowns. The CDC recommends the use of washable, cloth isolation gowns over single-use, disposable gowns.
