Washington DC – A record 132,646 hospitalized patients were registered in the United States yesterday, several hundred more than the previous record number of hospitalizations in January last year.

In the wake of the highly contagious omicron variant, there has been a significant increase in hospitalizations in the United States, which has doubled in the last three weeks, according to Reuters.

Although the omicron variant is potentially less dangerous in severity than delta strains, health officials warn that large numbers of infected people could burden hospital systems.

Few days ago last week, United States recorded the highest number of positive cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic, surpassing 1 million cases for the first time.
