The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (IARC) director has warned that 300,000 to 400,000 Americans could die from COVID – 19 if they do not take immediate action in the fall and winter. Anthony Fouchi said. “The current situation suggests that 300,000 – 400,000 Covid-19 deaths could occur if we do not do what we want in the fall and winter,” he said. Fouchi said at a virtual event at the American University. Following a forecast from the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in August, Drs. Fouchi’s comments. They predict that 300,000 people will die from Covid-19 by December 1.
Fouchi warned that the vaccine would not be available to most Americans until next summer or autumn. He had earlier said that life would not be normal until the end of next year. So far, 211,000 deaths and more than 7.53 million Kovid-19 infections have been confirmed in the U.S., according to Johns Hopkins University. Of these, 42,553 recovered.
Last week, President Trump, the First Lady, and several White House employees became corona virus-positive. Trump also spent three nights at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment. The Trump administration has come under fire for its actions in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak. In the first week of February, many experts suggested that Trump could have saved the lives of thousands of Americans if the spread of the coronavirus had been strictly controlled.
Trump has repeatedly questioned the way coronavirus deaths are calculated. He accused Democrats of underestimating his actions in the fight against the virus. Trump has tried in recent months to blame Chinese officials for allegedly spreading the disease from a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan, but to no avail. Experts say his withdrawal from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the suspension of funding are his failures.
Meanwhile, Bob Woodward, associate editor of the Washington Post, has recently published a book based on several interviews with Donald Trump. It also revealed that in the early days of the epidemic, the US president deliberately underestimated the risk of the virus.
Meanwhile, in a tweet on Tuesday, there was widespread opposition to Trump’s leadership failure to compare the coronavirus to the common cold. Trump claims that more than a million Americans die of typhoid fever in a few years.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the average number of deaths from typhoid fever is between 12,000 and 61,000 per year. Twitter deleted Trump’s tweet, citing violations of social media rules and regulations by spreading misleading and harmful information related to Covid-19.
Trump “returned to work” at the White House on Monday for violating CDC guidelines on coronavirus victims and endangering their staff. Returning from the hospital, he tweeted, “Don’t be afraid of COVID,” and came under heavy criticism from the public and the media. They blamed Trump’s careless leadership and irresponsible behavior for many of the deaths.
Even though he knew that Covid-19 was positive, his concealment led to widespread protests. Trump, who spent just three days in the hospital, will receive further treatment at the White House, his doctors say. Questions have also been raised about how to protect White House officials from Trump returning to the White House without a full cure.
