This is just the “start” of a dangerous new round of coronavirus cases, which may become more deadly when it reaches the elderly population in the United States.Dr. Anne Schuchat, Chief Deputy Director of CDC said. The United States has confirmed at least 2.59 million cases and more than 126,000 deaths, the highest in the world so far. Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and other states have a record number of new cases every day.
The disturbing assessment was made by Dr. Shuchat was broadcast live on Monday in an interview with Dr. Howard Bower of the Journal of the American Medical Association YouTube.
Shuchat emphasized: “Our condition in the United States is difficult to describe because it has too many diseases.” Hospital bed Capacity in Texas and other places is worrying, and “no one” wants to see what happens in New York repeating itself. Some parts of Texas are already The room is used up Suitable for ICU patients of covid-19.
Shuchat admits The death rate of the virus has been low for the past week because young people are infected with the disease, but this situation may change rapidly as healthy people spread it to others. More vulnerable people.
“I think there are a lot of good abacus ideas around the country,’Hey, it’s summer. Everything will be fine. We have overcome this.’ And we haven’t even begun to overcome this problem. There were many orders last week or so. Factors that people worry about. These growths exist in many places,” Shuchat said.
G/O Media may charge a commission
Schuchat’s comments, although exclusive to YouTube and not CNN, have attracted national attention, simply because CDC’s public health officials rarely have direct access to the public. The Trump regime has repeatedly denied the ability of people like Dr. Anthony Fudge Dialogue with news organizationsUnder the leadership of a normal government, experts like Schukat will have a lot of time to communicate with the American people. But the Trump regime is not a normal government.
Shuchat spent a lot of time in the interview Emphasizing that the hot summer weather does not prevent the virus from spreading across the country, this was hoped by well-known health experts such as former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb (Scott Gottlieb) a few months ago. Shuchat also emphasized that the only way to solve this pandemic is to encourage the wearing of masks, strengthen social isolation, and increase contact tracking for government-led contact detection groups.
Shuchat said: “I think we really need to take social alienation, contact tracing, isolation and isolation behavioral interventions to keep the spread to a minimum.”
Shukat recognized Other countries/regions around the world have adopted a solution to this pandemic, allowing them to quickly find cases and isolate patients so that they do not spread.
“We are not in New Zealand, Singapore or South Korea Quickly find new cases, track all contact information, isolate people who are sick, Those who were exposed were quarantined, They can control everything. We currently have too many viruses nationwide,” Shuchat said.
and Shuchat called for the success of New Zealand and Singapore to be correct, she deny Even countries like Italy and Spain, With ChinaWas hit hard by the virus, then rebounded and was able to reopen without being seriously affected New outbreak of this disease Because their respective governments are still functioning, unlike the United States.
Interviewer JAMA’s Dr. Bauchner said that it was great to hear Mike Pence talk more about masks recently, at least it can be said to be an awkward conversation. Pence did say at a press conference on Friday that Americans should heed the recommendations of the local government regarding masks, but he did not make it clear that every American should wear a mask. Instead, Pence said that at least three times as many people Should pray.
“I think we need everyone to join in now, because this is not only to protect my own health, but also to protect the health of others. Schuchat said in a 33-minute interview in a YouTube interview: “The people we do The more we protect our community, the more we can participate. “
Senior US health officials initially stated that the general population does not need to wear masks, but since then, we have learned that this incorrect advice was deliberately concocted In this way, Americans will not buy masks that frontline health workers may need.
Dr. Richard Bright, a whistleblower from the Ministry of Health and Human Services, testified last month United States The government proposes to manipulate information about whether N95 masks can effectively resist the spread of coronavirus to ensure that there are enough masks for doctors and nurses. And Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the White House Coronavirus Task Force’s most trusted advisors, Admitted earlier this month that he told American The mask does not work because he is worried About supply.
But Schuchat still insists that the open communication of masks is not for scientific purposes.
Shuchat said: “It’s not that we were wrong and then changed our minds, but we kept learning and found that this virus can spread before you have any symptoms. This virus can spread by talking to people.”
There are more than a dozen disturbing hot spots in the United States, and some of the most disturbing trends in Florida, Houston, and Los Angeles. According to Florida reports, Florida reported 5266 new coronavirus cases and 28 new deaths on Monday. Tampa bay times. Los Angeles County reports disturbing homosexualityH 2,903 brand new case on Monday,OneDaily record Health officials there have warned that the area will soon be depleted Intensive care bed. The number of confirmed cases in Los Angeles County has now exceeded 100,000, and many businesses have reopened, as if no pandemic was seen.
In terms of pandemics, the United States still has a long way to go, and people are already predicting fundamental changes in society It will be passed down from generation to generation. with Shuchat said that this would be on a par with other historic changes, such as the 1918 flu pandemic at the end of World War I.
Shuchat said: “When you plan it, when you are thinking about it, you have denied that it will indeed happen on your watch, but it is happening.” “I think what we experienced as a global community It’s really bad, it’s similar to the transformation experience of 1918.”
