According to official estimates, the number of new coronavirus infections in New York are expected to peak at some point within the next week. While this doesn’t signal the end of the coronavirus infections, it does mean that New York may be able to begin relaxing some of the coronavirus-related restrictions over the next few weeks. This would allow life in New York to return to relative normalcy after the strife caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is a highly infectious disease that can cause serious respiratory problems in anyone who contracts it. The disease is particularly dangerous for the elderly, people with chronic respiratory problems and those who are immunocompromised, who are more likely to suffer the worst effects of the coronavirus. Hospitals are increasingly overwhelmed by people who need serious medical attention due to COVID-19, and resources and personnel have been stretched to the breaking point by the sheer number of infections.
Fortunately, there is a bit of hope ahead, at least for New York, which is the current hotspot for coronavirus infections in the United States. With the rate of new infections peaking, it means the burden on hospitals and other medical facilities will begin to lessen, giving every person who requires hospitalization a better chance at survival. It will also allow doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and other medical professionals an opportunity to recover after weeks of intense strain.
