COVID Cases Jump in Cold-Weather States

Cold-weather states in the North and Midwest are experiencing upticks in coronavirus cases as temperatures begin to drop.

Alaska is leading the way with 125 new infections per 100,000 residents on a daily seven-day average — roughly five times the national average, CNN reported, citing data from Johns Hopkins University.

States such as Iowa, Oklahoma, Alaska, Vermont and New Hampshire have also had a rise in cases, CNN reported.

The downward trend is similar to last year’s pattern, even with widely available coronavirus vaccines that had not yet been developed then.

As of Wednesday, only 57% of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has more than 45 million confirmed coronavirus cases and nearly 729,000 related deaths since the start of the pandemic, both tops globally, according to Johns Hopkins data.
