Director of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: The difficulty of coronavirus pandemic in United States in the next three months is “unprecedented”
December 2nd, 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 pandemic.
“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 pandemic indicators.
“In the United States, 90% of our hospitals are located in hot spots in what we call red zones, so they are at risk of increased inpatients and may affect hospital capacity,” Redfield added, as high 90 percent of long-term care facilities in the United States are also currently in high-transmission zones. “We now It’s a very critical moment.”
