The cumulative number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States is approaching 500,000, the highest in the world.
According to U.S. media reports, another U.S. medical expert criticized the failure of the pandemic prevention and control in the United States, so that it was impossible to explain to future generations.
NBC reported that the number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States is the highest in the world, while the total population of the United States is less than 5% of the world’s population. At present, the number of deaths in the United States exceeds 20% of the global total.
In about two months, the number of deaths in the United States has increased by about 200,000.
Medical expert Patel: As we said before, we could have controlled the pandemic. Previously, we thought that our medicine was more advanced, our society was more advanced, and we would not face this situation again (the death toll surge).
But we still have this situation. My children, grandchildren, will say (we) failed to fight the pandemic when they look back at this period.
On the 21st, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that many Americans are currently tired of coping with the measures to prevent the virus and pay insufficient attention to the virus variants, which is likely to bring a response to the pandemic.
Fauci said that by 2022, Americans will probably still need to wear masks to fight against the novel coronavirus.
