The impact of COVID-19 on the US economy is still enormous. Many flights and freighters have to cancel the original transport plan due to the epidemic and other reasons, resulting in stagnation and a large number of Americans' plans for Christmas travel are affected.


Although President Biden announced his action strategy to curb the latest epidemic last week and continued to urge people to vaccinate, the chief infectious disease expert in the United States warned that the number of cases in the United States will increase in the next few days and may exceed the carrying capacity of the medical system, especially in areas with a high proportion of unvaccinated people.



In addition to the United States, the situation in Europe affected by the virus is also not optimistic. The number of confirmed cases in France has exceeded 100 thousand for the first time, and the number of hospitalized COVID-19 has doubled in the past month. The rapid spread of the variant has made the French government's efforts to avoid the implementation of the new travel blockade complex. More than one in every 100 people in Paris tested positive in the past week. Most of the new cases are related to the Omicron variant which government experts predict will dominate France in the next few days.
