According tomedia BGR, there has been a recent surge in confirmed cases of new crowns across the United States. Overall, the incidence of new coronal pneumonia is on the rise in more than 30 U.S. states. The situation is particularly severe in Texas, where officials are now warning that local hospitals have reached or are approaching saturation. An infectious disease expert explains that COVID-19 is such a huge problem in the United States because Americans either ignore the severity of the disease or pretend it is not a real risk.
U.S. states have taken a different approach. Some states, such as New York and Illinois, for example, have imposed blockades and required non-essential businesses to close, while other states, such as Florida, have adopted a more lenient approach. At the same time, other states, such as Nebraska, have largely continued to do their jobs. As a result, the number of new crown-confirmed cases has risen sharply in most parts of the Country.
How did the United States get caught up in this mess? Dr. Mark Kotpet, an infectious disease expert at the University of Nebraska, recently explained that most of the United States either ignores the risks associated with the new coronavirus or simply continue their daily work as if the virus never existed.
The “enemy” of the virus and the fundamentals of the virus’s transmission have not changed since then, and it is not surprising that the number of new infections has increased. States that ignore the issue or reopen the timetable are more aggressive are now paying the price and have to go back to their previous opening hours. The northeastern states hit by the first wave were more cautious, with the number of cases declining or stabilizing.
In addition, many people — even in states that are actively taking steps to combat the coronavirus — still don’t wear masks or follow the rules of keeping social distance. The good news is that the number of deaths from coronaviruses has not increased dramatically with the number of new cases, which Kortepter says is likely to change in the near future.
