A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that 2.4 million people in the U.S. have received an emg test for COVID-19, and about 3.6 million people tested positive for a COVID antibody test.
The findings from the latest study of COVID are among the first ever reported to CDC and are the latest in a long line of studies that have found that more than 1.5 billion people worldwide are infected with COVID.
As part of the study, researchers collected and analyzed data from more than 2.8 million people who were enrolled in the National Health Interview Survey between June 15 and June 28, 2017.
Using the National Healthcare Management System, which is a nationwide health record system that includes questions about health status, and a nationwide COVID vaccination data base, the researchers were able to determine that 2,476 people were positive for COV-19 in the United States between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017, representing 0.2 percent of the total US population.
Those results have been confirmed in the data set and are consistent with the number of cases reported by the Centers in the first week of August, 2017 and the number reported in early July, 2018, according to the study.
In the next four weeks, the study team is expected to release additional data and update its findings.
“There is no evidence that the majority of people who are not vaccinated are getting the right amount of COV vaccines,” Dr. Paul Frieden, Director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a statement.
“The CDC is continuing to work with states and providers to increase vaccination rates.
We know the vast majority of Americans are getting their recommended doses of COVA-19 vaccines and are in great health.
This is the start of a new era in which people can finally feel confident and live a life free of the COVID virus.”
There are many factors that determine the risk of getting COVID and COVID infection, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to vaccination, Frieden said.
Although most people are vaccinated with the COVA vaccine, the vaccine is also available for people who have been exposed to the virus during the outbreak.
