Dr Anthony Fucci, chairman of the Corona Virus Task Force, said the United States was heading in the “wrong direction” of the epidemic, with cases of Govt-19 increasing among 19 percent of the country’s population at one time.
In an interview with CNN this Sunday (25/7), Fassi said that “epidemics are developing in the United States among the unknown.”
“I’m very frustrated,” Fassi said after a CNN presenter provided data from a poll, pointing out that 80% of Americans who have been vaccinated so far will not accept or will certainly not get vaccinated.
“I do not want to criticize the people because it makes them retreat further. But I would like to see more (politicians) leaders from less vaccinated areas encouraging people to be vaccinated,” the doctor continued. “We have to do better. People are getting unnecessarily stressed because there is a higher risk of taking Covit-19 and having health problems,” he said.
Cases moving in the last seven days are 53% higher in the United States than the previous week, and 80% of cases have delta variation, which is highly contagious. According to Reuters, some hospitals in the United States are once again reaching their capacity.
To date, more than 162.7 million people – or 49% of the US population – have been fully vaccinated against Govt-19, according to official figures. The United States led the global immunization drive until April, when immunization rates began to slow.
Immunization rates are particularly low in the southern states of the country, where less than half of the population received the first dose.
There has also been a sharp increase in the number of cases in southern or central western states such as Florida, Texas and Missouri.
Earlier last week, expert Vivek Murthy said that 99.5% of Govt-19 deaths in the country occur among undetected groups.
According to Anthony Fossie, a White House adviser on the administration of Donald Trump and Joe Biden, health officials are considering the possibility of amending the permit for vaccinated people to stop wearing masks. It would be an attempt to have a more severe scale of events.
For now, the guidelines for CDCs (Disease Control Centers) are that fully vaccinated people can “resume their activities without wearing masks, just as they did before the outbreak”.
However, Fassi said governors can issue their own guidelines based on local realities.
