Reference News Network reported on November 9 that the US “Wall Street Journal” website published a report titled “Facing the most severe surge in the Coronavirus, the United States try to avoid blockades” on November 7, stating that the rebound of the Coronavirus Pandemic prompted some US cities Hezhou restored the restrictions on daily life, but the intensity was lighter than before, in order to minimize the economic losses caused by the total blockade. The full text is excerpted as follows:

New targeted measures include: banning indoor services in bars and restaurants in Illinois, banning chaotic and overcrowded indoor parties in Hoboken, New Jersey, and implementing new orders in Massachusetts and Maine requiring people to Wear masks in public places, no matter how far they are from other people.

Democratic Governor Gina Raimundo of Rhode Island said: “In the spring, we only issued blunt documents-closing all schools, closing all restaurants, closing everything. We don’t need to do this now. “She released a series of new two-week interventions this week, from restricting the flow of large supermarket chains to asking people to go home before 10pm on weekdays and 10:30pm on weekends.

Almost every state in the United States has shown signs of a resurgence of the Coronavirus. This week, the United States saw its first new case of more than 100,000 a day. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, on Thursday, local time, in 47 states, an average of 7 days of new cases of new coronary pneumonia exceeded the average of 14 days-indicating that the pace is accelerating. After the increase in new cases, the number of hospital admissions and deaths has also increased, and hospitals in the South and Midwest are also showing signs of tension.

Public policy makers, including Raimondo, do not necessarily rule out the possibility of adopting wider containment measures when the spread of the virus worsens, but they say that in order to avoid these stricter measures, they are first trying smaller, Targeted measures.

After the temperature surges in spring and summer, pandemic fatigue caused many people to relax their vigilance. Public health officials warned that as temperatures drop, the Pandemic may intensify again. The hospitalization rate in recent days has reached the highest point in three months.

Dr. Thomas Tsai, associate professor of Harvard University’s Chen Zengxi School of Public Health, said: “These shocking figures really show that we need to redouble our investment and truly focus on public health responses.”

Dr. Tsai said that government officials are able to take more focused measures because they now know more about how the virus spreads, and hospitals are better able to prepare for the surge in patients and treat diseases.
