Rising Covid infections and hospitalizations increase concerns

Also available on the nbc app

Though a week ago, the U.S. recorded a “pandemic low” for hospitalizations, a recent climb in Covid infections is starting to raise concerns. The CDC is urging residents that are in 56 “high risk” counties to mask up. Two-thirds of those areas are in New York state. Two new subvariants were also detected in South Africa, where Omicron first appeared.
