December 13th local time, an American expert said in an interview that the number of infected people in the United States may reach a new peak in January next year, and the pressure on hospitals will also peak.
CNN reported on the 13th local time, citing statistics from Johns Hopkins University that more than 30,000 people died of COVID-19 in the United States in the first 13 days of December, but the epidemic in the United States still shows no sign of slowing down.
California, the state with the largest number of confirmed cases in the United States, reported more than 30,000 new confirmed cases in a single day on the 13th, which is also the third consecutive day in the state that more than 30,000 new confirmed cases in a single day, and California has more than 1.5 million new confirmed cases in a single day.
Scott Gottlieb, the former director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, warned in an interview with CBS on the 13th that the number of infections in the United States will increase, which may reach a new peak in January next year, and the pressure on the health care system will peak later.
Bill Gates: The next four to six months may be the worst stage of the U.S. epidemic.
Bill Gates, co-chairman of the Gates Foundation of the United States, said in a recent interview with CNN that although the United States has authorized the emergency use of vaccines and will start vaccination this week, the United States is far from out of the predicament, and it is expected that the United States may experience the most COVID-19 epidemic in the next four to six months.
At a bad stage, he called on the American people to continue to take various epidemic prevention measures.
Bill Gates, Co-Chairman of the Gates Foundation of the United States: Sadly, the next four to six months may be the worst stage of the epidemic in the United States. There are projections that there may be another 200,000 deaths.
If the American people can wear masks and avoid gatherings, many deaths may be avoided, so in the near future, this is bad news.
Gates said that the U.S. government must learn from the epidemic and allow professional institutions and experts to release relevant information and suggestions in a timely manner, instead of trying to cover up and downplay the epidemic repeatedly.
Bill Gates, co-chairman of the Gates Foundation of the United States: I thought that the United States could deal with the epidemic better than now. We must learn from this epidemic, because there may be another infectious disease epidemic.
At that time, the U.S. government must be wiser and carry out relevant tests faster.
Allow Xu CDC and experts release information to the public in a timely manner, rather than fear of bad news, so that we can prepare the public to respond.
