Corona expected to claim 1-2 lakh lives in USA
USA, one of the most advanced nations in the world is shivering with Covid-19. The major states like Newyork, Florida Los angles, Dallas and many more are seriously fighting with this deadly virus. The number of cases in USA has surpassed the China, where the Corona is originated. The infrastructure in USA is not enough to meet the demand and beds are not sufficient to the inpatients. On the other side Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, speaks about the coronavirus.
He said US deaths from the coronavirus could reach 200,000 with millions of cases. Fauci, a key member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said the spread of the virus was unlikely to slow down in the coming days. “But I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection, when it’s such a moving target, that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people,” he said. “What we do know is that we got a serious problem in New York, we have a serious problem in New Orleans, and we’re going to be developing serious problems in other areas,” Fauci said.
Responding to a question, Fauci said it’s true the virus itself determines its timetable. “You can try and influence that timetable by mitigating against the virus, but, ultimately, it’s what the virus does. And when I start seeing this happen, then I will come back on the show and tell you, I think we’re at that point now where we can start pulling back a little, but not right now in several of the places that I just mentioned,” he said. The US coronavirus death toll topped 2,500 and
the US has recorded more than 130,000 cases of Covid-19, the most of any country in the world.
