It might take a while until the COVID-19 vaccine will be available for mass use in the United States, but we’re still one step closer to controlling the virus. However, the situation in America is not ideal right now, we could even say that the U.S. is still in crisis, so now it’s not a good time to ignore the safety measures.
There are almost 16 million cases in the United States right now, with almost 300,000 deaths and the highest number of coronavirus cases being recorded on Dec. 4, with 229, 243 a day. These are The ONLY 3 States That Shouldn’t Be Locking Down Right Now, According To Experts.
According to Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), our actions can prevent the stop of the virus, but read on to discover what he’s talking about.
On Dec. 9, during the 2020 Bloomberg American Health Summit Anthony Fauci shared with BBC World News’ Katty Kay the most important way in which we can prevent the spread of the virus is to acknowledge that we’re dealing with a real problem.
According to Fauci, “I think everybody uniformly needs to admit that we have a real problem. We’ve got to own the problem.” “If you don’t own the problem, you’re never going to fix the problem.”
As Fauci has mentioned, the biggest problem we have here in the U.S. is that most people are in denial. Of course, there are a lot of people who are aware that the virus is real, but some of them are still in denial about the risks associated with it, which makes it even more dangerous. According to Fauci, most Americans believe COVID-19 is not a big deal.
Fauci wanted to make sure those people know that the virus is real, and can be really dangerous for some. He even mentioned on BBC World News that the United States is now in a crisis, and we’re all dealing with a serious issue, considering the country continues to break its own records on the number of daily infections.
And now that we’ve entered the holiday season, people are making plans to travel to see their loved ones and gather to celebrate Christmas. Besides acknowledging the virus, Fauci also urges people to follow all the safety measures in order to control the spread of the virus.
