Recently, the number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States has shown a downward trend.
In response, several public health officials in the United States said that the decline in new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States may “mislead” the public into blind optimism about the epidemic situation, thus relaxing their vigilance.
Andy Slavitt, a senior adviser to the White House’s coronavirus response team, said in an interview with Microsoft NBC on the 15th that although the number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States is on the decline, it may cause “misleading” to the public.
As more infectious coronavirus variants spread across the United States, there may be a new wave of surges in cases in the United States.
The American people still can’t relax their vigilance. Slavitt said it was too early to be optimistic about the epidemic.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also said on the 16th that what needs to be made now is that people are not complacent to see the number of new confirmed cases in the United States decline.
Fauci said that the American people should not be too excited, because the United States is still facing the challenge of spreading mutant viruses.
