The number of Americans with water contamination has skyrocketed in the past decade, with some states and cities seeing more than 2.4 million new cases and more than 4 million people reporting problems with their water, according to a new report.
In fact, a new analysis released Monday from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that while some communities are seeing a drop in cases, a growing number of people in many parts of the country have had to go without drinking their water due to the coronaviruses.
The findings, published in the journal Water Quality & Infrastructure, are a sobering reminder that the coronavets have struck more and more communities across the country.
The new report, which was conducted by the Centers for Disease Management and Prevention and the Environmental Protection Agency, found that of the 1.1 million Americans with exposure to at least one coronaviral during the past 10 years, nearly 1.2 million have been exposed to the virus, with 1.3 million of them experiencing symptoms that can include headaches, fatigue, abdominal pain, or cough.
More than 600,000 of those who have been tested have tested positive for coronavirotosis, which can cause pneumonia, and about 437,000 have tested negative, the report said.
In a statement, the CDC said the new data underscores the need for public health officials and residents to work together to reduce water contamination.
The CDC said that, despite efforts to reduce the spread of coronavires, the number of cases remains elevated in many communities and regions.
“The numbers continue to grow and are increasing in the areas where we have had the most reporting and reporting to the public,” said Dr. Jeffrey N. Mollica, an assistant director at the CDC.
“There’s a need for all of us to come together and address the issue of the increased number of coronaves in our country.”
The new analysis also found that coronavire outbreaks in California are not unique to California, but to the entire country.
“California has been a hotbed of coronavetosis for the past several years, and its been a long-term pattern,” Mollika said.
“It is really the trend we are seeing.
California has seen the most cases in California, with an increase of more than 10,000 per day in the last three years.”
In addition, California has experienced a spike in cases of COVID-19, which is a coronavore that causes inflammation in the central nervous system.
That has led to an increase in cases in cities and counties across the state, Mollia said.
