On the 7th local time, Michael Ryan, the head of the WHO Health Emergency Project, said that in the past few weeks, the number of new cases of COVID-19 in the United States has accounted for one-third of the total number of new cases worldwide, and the difficult and prolongation of the epidemic in the United States has been exhausting.
One or two people die from COVID-19 every minute in the United States, which is “shocking”.
U.S. health officials also said that the adverse effects of large numbers of American travel during the traditional holiday in November have not yet fully emerged.
As the end of the year holiday approaches, the epidemic situation in the United States will become more complex, and it is expected that the deterioration of the epidemic in the United States will further intensify in the coming weeks.
Experts point out that the severity of the epidemic in the United States is alarming.
Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: We now know that the challenge is ahead, and December and January are also hopeless months
because now, it is no exaggeration to say that the number of infections, the number of hospitalizations, the number of deaths, the number of records every day, these numbers are shocking.
The epidemic has intensified, and the 911 emergency system in the United States is approaching its limit.
The Washington Post reported that the American First Aid Association said that the 911 emergency system in the United States is approaching its limit.
Without additional government assistance, the 911 emergency system will be on the verge of collapse.
NBC reported that in a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American First Aid Association said that $2.62 billion in emergency financial assistance is needed to ensure the normal operation of about 60,000 ambulances in the United States that can respond to 911 calls. A spokesman for the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services said that nearly $107 billion has been allocated to more than 550,000 emergency agencies across the United States, and a third round of assistance was launched last month, totaling $20 billion. But several first aid companies said that the assistance was not enough to help them tide over the difficulties.
Veterans: The epidemic is worse than the situation on the battlefield in Iraq.
So, how do the American people feel about the high number of confirmed and deaths of the novel coronavirus? A veteran who went to Iraq, now an emergency doctor, said in an interview with the U.S.
media that according to what he saw and heard, the coronavirus epidemic in the United States was worse than he had experienced on the front line in Iraq.
Emergency Doctor Craven Gilman: The situation is worse now than the battlefield in Iraq, because we are losing 2,000 to 2,500 lives every day.
Clivin Gilman is an emergency doctor from New York. Previously, he served in the U.S.
military and went to Iraq. He was involved in treating COVID-19 patients in New York as a front-line doctor earlier this year and is now working on the front line in Arizona.
He said bluntly that the Arizona government lacked to do anything about epidemic prevention and control. On the one hand, after the lifting of the previous blockade order, now people’s gatherings, dinners and gatherings have all resumed.
On the other hand, the government has not helped the shortage of personal protective equipment in hospitals.
Emergency physician Craven Gilman: A big problem in Arizona is the inaction of the government.
(Public places) are open, there is no ban.
Schools, indoor dining, large gatherings, political gatherings are all open, while hospitals across Arizona are short of PPE, and an N95 mask is worn for a week.
Last words of former Republican state legislators in the United States: We’ve all screwed up.
Larry Dixon, a former Republican senator from Alabama, is also outspoken about the fight against the epidemic in the United States.
According to a recent NBC report, Dickson, 78, recently attended a social party and contracted the novel coronavirus.
He died on the 4th local time. Before dying, Dickson issued a final warning about the epidemic.
He said: “We screwed up and relaxed our vigilance. Please tell everyone to be careful. The coronavirus pandemic is real, and if you get infected, seek help immediately.”
Full of rumors and conspiracy theories, anti-intellectualism prevails in the United States under the epidemic.
Compared with other countries, the United States is far ahead of both the number of confirmed cases and deaths.
Some people concluded that under the impact of anti-intellectualism and populism, the voice of scientific reason was flooded, and the United States, which has the world’s advanced medical resources, has become a “failure country” in the epidemic.
Looking back on the past period, many people have been unable to face the reality of the severe epidemic. A series of anti-intelligent phenomena such as anti-stay-at-home orders, masks, and anti-vaccines have refreshed the perception of American society again and again.
On the 4th, two hosts of the American consumer news and business channel quarreled about whether restaurants should close canteens at a time of the pandemic.
Andrew Sorkin, host of Consumer News and Business Channel of America: It is safer to wear masks in stores and churches than restaurants.
Rick St. Terry, host of Consumer News and Business Channel:
I disagree. You have your own opinion. I also have.
Andrew Sorkin, host of Consumer News and Business Channel in the United States: Sorry, but it’s science.
Wearing a mask is completely different.
Rick St. Terry, host of Consumer News and Business Channel in the United States: This is not science.
There are 500 people in the mall. I don’t think it’s safer than a restaurant with 150 people, I don’t believe it, sorry, I don’t believe, I live in, many restaurants are open, they have no problems, they are open.
This is a scene in which two hosts in the American television media openly argue. Host Rick St.
Terry still insists that there is no problem with open canteen eating. In fact, this kind of disrespect for scientific common sense is not uncommon in the United States.
Since the coronavirus pandemic, many states in the United States have implemented “stay-at-home orders” and recommended “wear masks”. It is an accepted fact that stay-at-home orders “wearing masks” can effectively reduce the rate of infection.
However, many people don’t believe in science and even hesitate to fight against epidemic prevention measures. Since April this year, dozens of states in the United States have frequently witnessed anti-stay-at-home orders. A large number of people have marched in the streets and shouted “Freedom, not lockdown”.
Anti-stay-at-home order protesters (May 1, 2020): I think it’s too exaggerated for you to say there are health risks.
They are exaggerating the risks. People in the public health department exaggerate the risks and put people in fears without needlessly.
Other protesters took out a pile of masks and lit them with fire.
American protesters: Burn masks, burn masks, I can’t believe it, friends, I have never been so happy in my life, it’s so beautiful.
Some people who support scientific anti-epidemic have also become the targets of the anti-intellectual movement.
A poll shows that 44% of U.S. Republicans and 19% of Democrats believe the statement that Microsoft founder Bill Gates intends to implant a digital chip for tracking into people through a large-scale coronavirus vaccination.
Bill Gates accused of being a “coronavirus maker”, “population planner” and more. On American social platforms, tens of thousands of people can be seen calling for rejection of the vaccine developed by Bill Gates.
In addition to Bill Gates, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was also known by some people as the behind the COVID-19, depriving people of their freedom.
Therefore, demonstrators shouted “fire Fauci”, and Fauci and his family were personally threatened.
The rampant anti-intellectualism has led to many ironic rumors circulating in American society. In mid-May, the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Counter-Terrorism Center issued a report that they warned law enforcement agencies across the United States against possible violent sabotage near 5G facilities because more and more people believed that the novel coronavirus was related to 5G networks.
