According to a U.S. media report on the 25th, with the arrival of the American public holiday, millions of Americans chose to go out during this period without listening to dissuasion. U.S. public health experts say holiday trips and indoor gatherings could cause a “surge again” in cases, which will make the grim pandemic situation in the United States worse.
According to CNN on the 25th, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, once again appealed to people to wear masks, maintain social distancing and avoid crowds, especially indoors.
Fauci said it was his last request before the holiday. If dissuasion is not listened to, the United States will face the risk of “surging again” of cases, and the consequences may appear in two or three weeks, which is the last thing he wants to see.
ABC commented on the 25th that the holiday has proved to be the catalyst for the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic throughout the United States. The review said that the national 7-day average of new infections in the United States before Memorial Day in May was about 21,000.
Five weeks later, this average doubled. Less than three weeks after the July 4 Independence Day holiday, a similar situation happened again. The seven-day average of new infections in the United States rose by nearly 40%, and nearly 60,000 people with COVID-19 were hospitalized.
The same situation reappeared shortly after the Labor Day holiday in the United States, and the United States ushered in a surge in infections.
Since mid-September, the number of new cases in the United States has increased by nearly 400% in a single day, and the spread of the virus is much wider than in the summer.
In November, many epidemic data in the United States hit new highs. The peak of holiday trips could result in a massive surge in cases, which will have a huge impact on the grim pandemic situation in the U.S.,
with hospitalizations expected to exceed 100,000 by the end of this year, with deaths approaching 300,000, according to Boston Children’s Hospital expert John Brownstein.
