COVID Data Tracker Weekly Review

COVID-19 cases in the United States have been steadily increasing. This increase could be driven by more contagious variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. B.1.1.7, the most common variant in the United States, has been reported in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

Post-COVID Conditions

Although most people with COVID-19 get better within weeks to months of illness, some do not. CDC and experts around the world are working to learn more about short- and long-term health effects associated with COVID-19, who gets them, and why. CDC uses the term post-COVID conditions to describe health issues that persist more than four weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Home

Cleaning with a household cleaner that contains soap or detergent reduces the amount of germs on surfaces and decreases risk of infection from surfaces. Disinfection to reduce transmission of COVID-19 at home is likely not needed unless someone in your home is sick or if someone who is positive for COVID-19 has been in your home within the last 24 hours. Follow recommended steps for cleaning and disinfecting your home when someone is sick.
