In an interview with CCTV reporters, U.S. public health expert and former professor at the Harvard School of Public Health William Haseltine said that the United States is “very likely” that the COVID-19 virus epidemic has existed since December last year; and after the epidemic has further spread, the United States One of the government’s biggest failures in fighting the epidemic is “not learning from China’s experience.”
In response to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s research report on “the COVID-19 virus appeared in the United States as early as December last year,” Haseltine believes that it is very likely that the COVID-19 virus epidemic has existed in the United States since December last year. This is because of the COVID-19 virus. There are a large number of asymptomatic and mildly ill patients among the infected, and the number of infected people is not very large. The US government lacks attention to this. After the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, the US government failed to take timely and effective response measures, which is the main reason for the continued deterioration of the COVID-19 pneumonia epidemic in the United States.
American public health expert William Haseltine: One of the biggest failures of the White House in fighting the epidemic is that it did not gain experience from China’s measures to fight the epidemic. China has always played a role model. China strictly follows the epidemic prevention guidelines, and the Chinese government has implemented (anti-epidemic measures) vigorously and achieved very good results.
Haseltine pointed out that China had shared information about the COVID-19 pneumonia epidemic with the US government as early as January this year. It is very puzzling that some US politicians “shoveled” the fact that the United States was not able to fight the epidemic.
US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: the next three months will be “the most difficult”
On the 2nd local time, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning to the American people, stating that the US public health system will usher in the “most difficult period” in history in the next three months, and the health care system is facing significant pressure. A few days ago, 90% of hospitals in the United States are in the red zone where the epidemic indicator is the worst.
American infectious disease expert Gary Richward: We have done our best to ensure that there are enough medical staff in the ward. This is our goal. However, when the intensive care unit of the hospital is full, I can’t imagine what will happen.
