Currently, the novel coronavirus pneumonia confirmed case has exceeded 5 million mark, which is equivalent to one in every 66 Americans, while the confirmed case has increased from 4 million to 5 million for 17 days. There is also an accelerated rise in the death rate: according to statistics over the past period of time, an average of one person died of new coronavirus related diseases every 80 seconds in the United States.
in the face of the constantly exploding epidemic data, the U.S. government has not learned a lesson in the fight against the epidemic. On the contrary, White House politicians are still repeating the “stupid tricks” that have been taken as a laughing stock by the world day after day on several epidemic related issues that people are most concerned about
the key role of virus detection in epidemic prevention and control has been well known around the world, but in the United States, where asymptomatic infection is becoming more and more serious and wearing masks and reducing aggregation is far from becoming a common habit of the public, this is still an incomprehensible short board.
a recent survey by the Associated Press found that although the epidemic situation in the United States showed no signs of remission, the average daily virus detection volume did not increase, but decreased. In the past two weeks, the number of virus detection in the United States has decreased by 3.6%, and the average daily detection volume in 22 states has shown a downward trend. According to the analysis, this is mainly due to the imbalance of detection resources and the lack of detection ability. Many people need to wait for days or even weeks to get outdated results, so many people simply give up testing.
Craig Spencer, an assistant professor at Columbia University Medical Center and an emergency doctor in New York City, said in an interview that the development of the epidemic situation in the United States to this extent is closely related to the authorities’ delay in coming up with a national epidemic prevention strategy. The White House promised to get everyone tested for the virus, but now it has become a global laughing stock.
Craig Spencer: I think this is unreasonable. Since the outbreak of the epidemic for more than half a year, there has not been a comprehensive and collaborative virus detection strategy. It’s unbelievable. The initial official promise that everyone would be tested for the virus didn’t come true, and we became the laughing stock of the world. In fact, we have more cases, more deaths than anywhere else in the world. Our anti epidemic work is hindered because we can’t get accurate and sufficient virus tests. People who have done the tests have to wait five or ten days to get the results. This test is useless.
blindly promoting economic and social restart has always been an old problem in the United States in response to the epidemic. But now, as the traditional autumn school season approaches, American concerns about “restarting” are increasingly focused on schools and children, and the debate over how to start school is becoming increasingly heated.
△ U.S. President trump recently tweeted “let’s start school”, which immediately aroused strong public protest. “Shut your mouth” was once on the hot search topic list. Novel coronavirus pneumonia is reported in the last two weeks of July in the United States, and more than 338 thousand of all children are infected in the United States in the last 100 thousand weeks of
. However, the trump government continues to say that “there is no danger for young people”, forcing schools to resume “face-to-face” Teaching under the condition of serious inadequate preparation, which has aroused widespread concern and opposition from teachers, parents and students.
what’s more, some American media have revealed that although trump has asked schools across the country to restart their campuses, the private school where his youngest son, Barron trump, has been ordered to prohibit face-to-face teaching at the beginning of the autumn school year. In response, best-selling author don Winslow satirized trump on social media: “you can’t even restart your own son’s school So now eat your hamburger and shut up. ”
more and more Americans have been awakened by the continuous deterioration of the epidemic situation and the frequent confrontations of politicians. According to a recent US poll, less than one-third of Americans still believe in the White House’s epidemic information, and most people turn to trust the opinions of American health experts.
act in a diametrically opposite way. Novel coronavirus pneumonia, a key member of the White House New Crown pneumonia task force, has been targeting Trump, who has always been “cautious” in the work of the working group to coordinate Dr. Anthony Foch. The reason is only that in an interview, he said in an interview, “the epidemic is positive”. In the United States, it has spread and entered a new stage, and rural areas have been affected just as much as cities.
in response to the White House’s obsession, five former directors of the Centers for Disease Control and prevention of the United States stressed in an exclusive interview with ABC that there was only one reason for the deep epidemic in the United States: the government ignored science and the leadership information was chaotic.
Julie gerharding, one of the former directors, pointed out that the White House ignored key experts’ suggestions on “all people wear masks” and “postpone the resumption of work and school”, thus depriving the United States of the opportunity to contain the epidemic. “You need to listen to science and experts because our guidance is based on principles that are best for public health, not about what’s best for politics,” she yelled
the U.S. government repeats its “stupid tactics” against the epidemic day after day, in return for more “own people” betrayal. According to a recent poll released by Gallup Consulting Company, only 13% of Americans are satisfied with the status quo of the country, which is the lowest level since August 2011.
at the same time, more and more Americans who have lost confidence in the performance of the White House’s fight against the epidemic choose to vote with their feet. In the first six months of this year alone, 5816 people gave up their U.S. citizenship, reaching a record level, AP reported.
recently, Time magazine published the cover of the latest issue on August 17. On the cover, the White House is flooded with a sea of new coronavirus.
in the cover article entitled “how the new coronavirus has changed the 2020 election”, time said that the epidemic has brought about a great change in the thinking of the American people: how to choose a president who “can end this disaster, deal with its consequences, and let the United States emerge from the ashes.”.
some authorities have issued a new warning. If the White House continues to repeat the “stupid measures” against the epidemic, it will bring more serious consequences. The novel coronavirus pneumonia may increase by nearly 300 thousand by the end of this year, if the US epidemic strategy is not changed, Scott Gottlieb, former director of the food and drug administration, said in an interview. “What the United States needs is top-down policy-making and a more unified approach to fighting the epidemic, but these are the opposite of what the United States is doing now.”.
Guo Xiangang, a researcher at the China Institute of international studies, believes that although trump has realized the seriousness of the U.S. epidemic and has made some so-called “concessions” to regain popular support before the election, he is afraid that it has not helped.
Guo Xiangang: “we can see that President trump has to wear a mask, and some other officials, including the public, are required to wear masks when necessary to maintain a certain social distance. At the same time, they also demand that rallies be reduced, including the closing of the Republican nomination convention. But I’m afraid it’s a bit too late, because it’s less than 90 days before the election, and it’s hard to make a big improvement in the epidemic situation in the United States
