February 22, local time, as the death toll from COVID-19 in the United States was approaching 500,000, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview with the local media that as a highly developed country, the United States has done “worse than most countries” in dealing with the COVID-19 epidemic.
When “different states are separate, rather than having a unified approach”.
In late winter and early spring last year, when the forecast said the number of deaths from COVID-19 could be as high as 240,000, Fauci said, “People think we are exaggerating, and now we have 500,000 deaths, which is an amazing number.”
Fauci said: “As a unified country, we should move forward together.
The COVID-19 epidemic is our common enemy, and we all have strength.” While there is good news about vaccines, Fauci said that public health measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 must continue in this battle against the epidemic.
“This is our weapon against this terrible disease.”
