The Covid-19 cases in the US has continued to surge, hitting a seven-day average of 254,496 on Tuesday.

 The new cases of the virus have surpassed the country’s previous record of about 251,989 daily cases, reported on January 11, Johns Hopkins University data reports.

According to sources, the massive spread of the virus, since last month, has been as a result of the acceleration of infections in the US and the rest of the world.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Tuesday’s seven-day average is still in progress and may rise when the day ends.

So far, experts have made comments concerning the future of the most contagious strain of coronavirus in the coming year.  They have predicted that the Omicron variant is going to make the start of 2022 very difficult.

“January is going to be a really, really hard month. And people should just brace themselves for a month where lots of people are going to get infected,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health.
