On June 30th local time, Fuch, a top American infectious disease expert, said that the United States has not completely controlled the new outbreak of pneumonia in China. If the outbreak continues to develop at the current rate, the United States will die. The number of fatal cases will reach a “very disturbing” level, and the number of new diagnoses in a single day may soon reach 100,000.
Comprehensive CNBC and other U.S. media reports, Fauci said at a Senate hearing on the 30th that the United States now reports more than 40,000 newly diagnosed cases every day, almost 22,800 per day in mid-May The number of cases is twice, mainly due to outbreaks in many states in the southern and western United States. It is reported that about 50%of new cases come from Florida, California, Texas and Arizona.
Earlier, US health officials estimated that there were between 100,000 and 200,000 new cases of pneumonitis in the country, but as of June 30, the number had exceeded 120,000. For a senator’s request for a new estimate, Fodge said he could not make an accurate prediction, but (the epidemic situation) will be very disturbing. He also said:”The United States now has more than 40,000 new cases every day. If the situation does not improve, it will not surprise me to add 100,000 new cases every day in the future, so I am very worried.”
In response to a senator asking whether the United States is in the right direction to control the epidemic, Fauci believes that the numbers themselves can explain the problem.”I am very worried. I am not satisfied with the current situation. If you look at the curve of the number of new cases, you will find that we are walking in the wrong direction. So we really have to take action, we must act quickly.”
The epidemic data released by Johns Hopkins University in the United States show that as of 6:30 on July 1, Beijing time, the United States has accumulatively diagnosed 2623217 cases of new coronary pneumonia and a total of 127258 deaths. Compared with the data at 6:30 the previous day, 59,054 new cases were confirmed in the United States, the largest increase in a single day; 1330 new cases were added.
