Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: The difficulty of the coronavirus epidemic in the United States in the next three months is “unprecedented”
Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned the public that the next few months will be very difficult according to the current development of the coronavirus epidemic.
“In fact, December, January and February will be tough times. I think three months will be the most difficult period in the history of public health in the United States, mainly because our health care system will be under great pressure.” Redfield pointed out that 90% of hospitals in the United States have been in the red area with the worst epidemic indicators.
“In the United States, 90% of our hospitals are located in hot spots in what we call the red zone, so they are at risk of increasing hospitalizations and potentially affecting hospital capacity.” “Up to 90% of long-term care facilities in the U.S. are also in high transmission zones, and we are now at a critical moment,” Redfield added.
