Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview with the BBC on the 28th that the fragmentation of the states in the fight against the epidemic and the politicization of public health issues in the United States are important reasons for the out-control of the COVID-19 epidemic in the United States.
Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: The various states in the United States have been siloed in responding to the epidemic, with huge policy differences and lack of continuity, which is one of the important reasons why the United States has become the most affected country in the world.
In addition, we have seen politicization. Some simple protective measures, such as wearing masks, have become a political statement; avoiding gathering and staying away from gathering people have also become political statements.
This has caused great trouble for the current unpredictable epidemic prevention and control.
