February 19 According to the Associated Press on the 18th, many states in the United States are recently relaxing pandemic prevention restrictions and allowing commercial activities such as catering to resume.
Many public health experts in the United States warned that the variant novel coronavirus is continuing to spread in the United States, and local governments have ignored the danger of this status quo.
Scientists in the United States have said that the United States does not have enough resources to deal with variant viruses at present, and the relaxation of restrictions is likely to trigger another round of pandemic, repeating the 2020 coronavirus ravaging in the United States.
“This is not the time to be completely restarted,” said Gangalaap, an expert at the Scripps Institute, who studies the variation of the novel coronavirus, that this is not the time to be fully restarted.
At least 42 U.S. states are currently reporting variant virus B.1.1.7 found in the UK, but officials have not paid attention to the variant virus due to the decline in confirmed cases in some areas.
In Florida, which reported the most confirmed cases of B.1.1.7, officials have “no longer paid attention to the pandemic”. Speaking of the rise in variant virus cases, Governor DeSantis even told reporters: “Obviously the media is worried, and you especially like those.”
Although the coronavirus vaccination work in the United States is still in progress, experts, including Fauci, the chief infectious disease expert, and Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, admitted that if the variant virus pandemic occurs in the United States, the pandemic number will rise again.
In the eyes of many experts, a major problem facing the United States is the slow monitoring of virus genes and the inability to effectively track the spread and spread of variant viruses.” We are chasing a moving target, and it changes too fast.” “We have to take the initiative,” said LSU geneticist Miller.
