Experts warn that winter is more dangerous: “No one knows where it will go”
Many public health experts have repeatedly warned that with the advent of cold weather, the US pandemic is entering the third large-scale outbreak after spring and summer. If we continue to develop in accordance with current trends, this winter will be “catastrophic”.
Since last week, the number of new confirmed cases in a single day in the United States has entered a “100,000+” track. Harvard University epidemiologist Mark Lipsitch recently told the Journal of the American Medical Association that the new coronavirus will continue to spread rapidly. By December, the number of new confirmed cases in a single day in the United States may double the current number.
Former Director of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Scott Gottlieb analyzed that the number of new infections in the United States may have reached “at least 500,000” in a single day, because the number of confirmed cases may only be One-fifth of the actual number of infections.
Peter Hottz, a professor at Baylor College of Medicine in the United States , was also worried that “the most terrifying moment has not yet come.”
Hotz: “Unfortunately, the most terrifying moment has not yet arrived. Our current seven-day rolling average of new single-day cases has reached the highest level since the outbreak in the United States. No one knows how far things will go. “
The White House continues to be the negative model, what to do in the next two months
With the accelerated deterioration of the U.S. pandemic, the White House blindly “political anti-pandemic” has not only failed to play its due leadership and exemplary role, but has turned itself into a “U.S. pandemic barometer”. The infected people in the core political circle have been one after another. Lampe himself is no exception. Right now, a new round of the White House pandemic is coming.
US media reported on the evening of the 6th local time that White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tested positive for the Coronavirus and became the latest confirmed senior official of the White House. In an interview last month, Meadows said in a high profile that the White House “will not control the pandemic.” He also opposed the wearing of masks and other prevention and control measures.
Immediately afterwards, US media reported on the 7th that four more White House staff tested positive for the new coronavirus, but they did not disclose their names. On the 9th, US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson confirmed the infection. In addition, President Trump’s two campaign advisers Nick Trainor and David Bossi have also been recruited recently.
The New York Times reported that President Trump has been working hard to minimize the pandemic throughout the summer, but people around him have been tested to be infected with the Coronavirus one after another. This makes people worry that a new round of pandemic may break out among senior US officials.
In an online exchange with the American Medical Association (AMA) a few days ago, Anthony Fauci , the chief infectious disease expert in the United States who has been suppressed by the White House recently , once again emphasized that medical experts in leadership positions are making suggestions for responding to the pandemic. “Stick to science, evidence and data.” He suggested that these professionals “don’t participate in any political affairs, and only focus on their work as scientists and doctors.”
Former Director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Scott Gottlieb recently called on the current U.S. government to adopt more aggressive strategies to combat the new coronavirus from now to January next year.
Biden, the US Democratic presidential candidate who announced that he won the general election, announced on the 9th local time the establishment of a “Consultative Committee for Combating Coronavirus” composed of experts to help formulate a plan to deal with the pandemic.
