“These death data are true. If you don’t believe it yet, you can go to the hospital and go to the trenches to see what the medical staff are doing. Anthony Fauci, the top medical expert in the United States, responded angrily in the face of a recent attack by American leaders on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) deliberately exaggerating epidemic data.
He also warned that in the face of the continuous surge in confirmed cases and deaths, he cannot choose to escape.
More than 20 million people are diagnosed and more than 350,000 people die; in Los Angeles, one person is diagnosed with the novel coronavirus every six seconds…
A series of cold figures reflect the epidemic that the United States is as out of control like a wild horse. However, some politicians in the United States are still blind, constantly spreading false information and trying to shirk their responsibilities.
Jerome Adams, the director of the U.S. Public Health Administration, said bluntly that one of the most challenging things during the epidemic is to send accurate health information to the American people in a political environment.
Indeed, looking back on the past ten months, accurate information has become a scarce item on the battlefield of the United States’ anti-epidemic
. From describing the epidemic as “large influenza” to spreading the fallacy that “injecting disinfectant can kill the novel coronavirus”, to claiming that the outbreak is a “new scam” of political opponents, American politicians repeatedly put out amazing words for political self-interest, peddled the eye-dropping “pseudoscience”, causing serious misinformation to the American people. There were even deaths of people drinking disinfectant.
The Washington Post article pointed out that the “misinformation pandemic” can explain why the United States has advanced medical technology, but it is one of the highest coronavirus deaths in the world.
The long-term dissemination of false information and bipartisan fighting have led to the politicization of the epidemic, which has caused the American people’s understanding of the epidemic into serious confusion and lost trust in the government’s anti-epidemic measures. This partly explains why two vaccines have been approved for use in the United States, but a large number of people refuse to be vaccinated.
According to U.S. media reports, more than half of emergency responders in New York City are skeptical of the vaccine. Up to 60% of nursing home workers in Ohio choose not to get the vaccine, and even pharmacists deliberately sabotage the vaccine.
Medical staff are still like this. What about the ordinary people? A recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 27 percent of respondents said they would “may or not” be vaccinated against the coronavirus “no chance.” The Los Angeles Times pointed out that combined with the actions of the federal government, this result is not surprising.
In the face of the out-of-control epidemic, American politicians are still addicted to fraud and blame, indicating that their pursuit of political self-interest has reached its peak.
Although less than 20 days away from leaving office, White House politicians are still trying to make a last move. Against this background, diluting the epidemic situation and promoting the so-called political achievements have become important bargaining chips.
It has been noted that on New Year’s Day, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted that “the United States is far safer now than four years ago”. And the week he tweeted, on average, someone in the United States died of the coronavirus in 33 seconds. Is this the “safer America” in the eyes of American politicians? Such bad lies can deceive themselves.
The poorest are the American people who have been forgotten by politicians. According to the latest forecast of the Institute of Health Indicators and Evaluation (IHME) of the University of Washington School of Medicine, about 115,000 new deaths from COVID-19 will be added in the United States in the next month.
This means that for the American people, the saddest moment is yet to come.
The arrogant Washington politicians are running for selfishness, but the kind American people are suffering innocently.
Can such an America that ignores human rights, tear social tear and fail to system claim to be a “beacon of the free world”?
