US media said experts warned of risks in February but were banned
CNN reported on the 25th that on February 25, eight months ago, the United States had only reported 57 confirmed cases and no deaths. At the time, Nancy Messonnier, an official of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned that it was only a matter of time before the epidemic spread in the United States and that it needed to be prepared.
US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Officer Nancy Messonier: Ultimately, we expect community transmission of Coronavirus Pandemic in the United States. This is not whether it will happen, but when it will happen, and how many people in this country will have it. Severe symptoms.
According to the report, the US government was very angry after learning of Messonye’s statement at the time and threatened to fire Mesoniye. When asked by the media whether Coronavirus Pandemic will spread in the United States, the US government deliberately concealed the threat of the epidemic and lied that the United States was well prepared. Since then, Messonnier has been pressured by the government. After March, she has not appeared in public.
CNN commented that a few months later, it turned out that Messonnier’s prediction was correct and the US government was wrong. There are currently more than 220,000 deaths in the United States. A recently published study showed that if the US government implemented the epidemic response measures recommended by health experts from the beginning, about 130,000 to 210,000 Americans would be saved from death due to new Coronavirus Pandemic. But the US government is still reluctant to admit its mistakes.
The NBC report pointed out that many current and former CDC employees said that during the epidemic, months of information chaos and political pressure made the CDC’s internal atmosphere “toxic”. They are in dire straits. They said that if the current government is re-elected, it is expected that a large number of staff will leave the US CDC.
