Coronavirus pandemic in the United States continues to worsen, and the number of new cases is rising every day. On the 12th local time, many American experts said in an interview with the media that the out-of-control pandemic in the United States is a humanitarian disaster, like a massacre.
CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta: The pandemic in the United States is a humanitarian disaster, and it may be the worst report since I worked in this media. The pandemic was terrible. The worst was Haiti (the 2010 earthquake) which caused about 200,000 deaths, but the situation was completely different at that time. It was a natural disaster.
Peter Hotz, director of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor University School of Medicine in the United States, also said that this pandemic is like a massacre, so many lives shouldn’t have died.

In an interview, Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said in an interview that in the face of a surge in cases across the United States, the US government needs to take national control measures and provide corresponding support.
Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota: Our current measures seem to have little effect on containing this wave of pandemic. I think small businesses, school health care centers, etc. all hope to do the right thing, but according to the current situation, it is difficult to control the pandemic without financial support
