US top virologist fears 100,000 new corona infections daily NOW

-

Anthony Fauci, the chief American virologist, warns of a resurgence of the corona outbreak in the United States. If people don’t stick to current measures, Fauci’s spread could increase to 100,000 new infections a day. He emphasizes that there is no guarantee that a properly functioning vaccine will be delivered.

In several US states, new measures are being stopped as the number of new infections increases daily. There are also fears of an accelerated spread as a result of the celebration of American independence on July 4.

Fauci points out that more and more people, especially young adults, are less careful with the measures. This includes, for example, wearing mouth masks and keeping them at a distance.

Currently, the daily rise in infections in the US is about 40,000, but that could more than double, according to the virologist. In addition, Fauci also warns against the absence of a safe and effective vaccine against the virus. “It is extremely important to have, but there is no guarantee that it will come.”

US has at least 25 percent of worldwide infections

Currently, the US has over 125,000 deaths from COVID-19 and over 2.6 million confirmed infections. The country has the highest death toll and the most contagion cases in the world.

While the U.S. has 4 percent of the world’s total population, it also has about 25 percent of the global number of infections. The number of infections is likely to be even higher, as it is estimated that only 10 percent of the total number of infections in the U.S. are known, writes CNN.

In addition to infections and deaths, the virus has had other consequences: many millions of Americans have lost their jobs since mid-March. Since the outbreak started, over 47 million people have applied for benefits for the first time.
