The new crown virus epidemic is still serious in the United States. The total number of confirmed cases has exceeded 5.044 million and the total number of deaths has exceeded 162,900.
According to data from Johns Hopkins University, more than 1.5 million people in the United States have recovered from the new coronavirus infection, and the United States has also reported more than 162,918 cases Coronavirus-related deaths.
The number of confirmed cases and deaths of new coronary pneumonia reported in the United States is the highest of any country. The number of new infections across the United States has recently shown signs of remission, but the number of cases is still high compared to the early days of the epidemic.
In some U.S. states, in response to the surge in patients with new coronary pneumonia in June and July, the governors implemented a statewide mandatory mask policy and re-implemented a series of restrictions Measures. However, other states have basically maintained the business of non-essential enterprises when the economy rebounded in the summer.
For example, in Georgia, despite the surge in COVID-19, Governor Brian Kemp refused to implement a statewide mask injunction order and tried to prohibit local governments from issuing similar orders. In Florida, another hot spot of the virus, Governor Ron DeSantis (R) refused to issue a statewide order, but some local leaders across the state have implemented mandatory facial covering requirements. .
Cases in Florida, Arizona, and Texas peaked in mid-to-late July, but have declined in the past few weeks. For many states, the number of cases has begun to show a downward trend, but it is still high, which highlights the difficulty of quickly controlling the disease.
Previously, U.S. President Trump insisted in an interview with Axios released on Monday that in the United States, the epidemic has been "controlled as far as you can." He said that the death toll "is that way."
Trump said, “They are dying. This is true. This is the fact. But it doesn’t mean that we are not doing our best. As long as you can control it, it will Under your control, this is a terrible plague." The
interview was recorded before the number of coronavirus-related deaths in the United States exceeded 150,000. Previously, Trump had been advocating for the development of a vaccine before the end of this year. He also said Thursday that he believes that the vaccine will be ready around November Election Day.
In an interview, when asked if he thought the vaccine could be ready by November 3, Trump said, "I think in some cases, it was possible before. Yes, but at that time. We have great companies, and other countries in the world are also developing vaccines. Let us see how they do it."
