According to US media “Business Insider”, Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told the media on Friday (23) local time that according to current trends, the United States The number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia “will easily reach six figures.” Osterholm said that usually new cases can be detected in about two to three weeks; therefore, in the next three to four weeks, the number of deaths due to the epidemic will also rise sharply. Osterholm also warned that the cold in autumn and winter will cause more people to stay indoors, which is worrying because “this virus is more likely to spread in indoor environments.”
Statistics from Johns Hopkins University show that the number of newly confirmed cases in a single day in the United States has exceeded a new high for two consecutive days.

Since this month, the number of new cases every day in the United States has increased by nearly 40%. Experts predict that this fall and winter, the third wave of new coronavirus infections in the United States may be the deadliest. Last week, at least 34 states in the United States reported new confirmed cases, and many states set a single-day record. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy warned: “We are still in a pandemic and need to be taken seriously by everyone. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing.”
Fauci, known as the “Captain of the United States Anti-epidemic,” also suggested that “it is time to issue a mandatory mask order across the United States.” Fauci said on the 23rd that it sounds simple, but the United States has not done so uniformly. This is one of the reasons why everyone has seen a surge in the number of cases in various states.
