The total number of confirmed cases is approaching 9.3 million, and the total number of deaths exceeds 230,000. What stage has the US pandemic under the raging Coronavirus developed?
On the 2nd local time, the US “New York Times” reported that Deborah Burks, the coordinator of the White House’s New Coronavirus Response Task Force, answered that the United States is entering the “most worrying and deadliest” phase of the pandemic.
On the 2nd local time, Burks issued a severe warning in a private memo to White House officials that the US pandemic is entering a new “fatal stage” and that more active response measures are needed.
According to the New York Times, when Burks issued this warning, the number of new confirmed cases of Coronavirus in a single day in the United States had broken the record, reaching nearly 100,000.
This contradicts Trump’s erroneous claim that the pandemic “is about to reach an inflection point.”
The report said that the memo also warned Trump that Trump had been holding rallies, and predicted that the number of new cases of new Coronavirus in the United States exceeded 100,000 in a single day will continue for several days.
“The New York Times” said that for Berks, this outspoken remark is very eye-catching. Unlike Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious
Diseases, who has repeatedly stated publicly and disagrees with the White House, Burks has adopted a more cautious attitude-she has always been careful not to publicly criticize the President or the Trump administration.
Last Friday, Fauci made an unusually frank criticism of the US government’s response to the pandemic. Not only did the White House spokesman publicly accuse Fauci of “playing politics before the election,” Trump also hinted on the 2nd that he would “fire Fauci” after the election.
In March of this year, Burks was appointed as the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Response Task Force. The New York Times said that this job requires Berks to manage the work of the White House Coronavirus Response Task Force, track and coordinate the government’s efforts to control the pandemic.
At the beginning of the outbreak, Burks showed a calm and authoritative attitude, which was in stark contrast with the complex message sent by Trump. But recently, Trump’s newly appointed pandemic adviser Scott Atlas has eclipsed Burks.
Atlas advocates letting the virus spread naturally among young people, while the government focuses on protecting the elderly and vulnerable groups. Many public health experts say that such a strategy will lead to unnecessary death and suffering.
According to the New York Times, with the surge in confirmed cases of Coronavirus across the United States, hospital intensive care units have begun to be overcrowded, and scientists and public health experts are increasingly worried that the worst moment of the pandemic in the United States has yet to come.
According to real-time statistics from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, there were a total of 9,292,514 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the United States, and a total of 231,562 deaths.
