The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has eased since January this year, and many states and territories, including New York City, Montana, Iowa and North Dakota, are gradually relaxing pandemic control measures.
In response to this situation, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned on the 26th that the current anti-pandemic progress in the United States seems to have stalled.
Fauci said that the current pandemic situation in the United States is still in a very dangerous situation, because a little carelessness will push the United States to another peak of the pandemic. Fauci believes that expanding the scale of coronavirus vaccination and reducing the positive rate can further reduce the pandemic data in the United States. Before that, Fauci advised state governments not to relax control measures.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: We don’t want to always see the dark side of things, but we still need to be realistic, so we must carefully observe what changes in the pandemic data next week before we can agree with the relaxation of control measures.
Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: More infectious variant strains may have been widely spread in the United States
On the same day, CDC director Volansky said that the number of new confirmed cases and deaths in the United States has increased in the past three days compared with a week ago, which may indicate that the more infectious coronavirus variants have begun to spread widely in the United States. Warrensky said that how to prevent and control the pandemic correctly depends on whether the United States will usher in another peak of the pandemic.
