“This growth is accompanied by a surge in viruses in American communities.” said Sally Goza, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “As a pediatrician who has been working in medicine for more than 30 years, I find this number shocking and sad. Since we were vaccinated against measles and polio, we have not seen a virus spreading rapidly in the community like this.”
Goza said in a statement that the pandemic has caused heavy damage to children, families, communities, and front-line medical teams. Efforts must now be made to restore confidence in public health and scientific institutions.
She said: “We urgently need to adopt new strategies nationwide to control this pandemic, which should include the implementation of recognized public health measures, such as wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.”
