Last weekend, the US public health expert, Drs. Anthony Fauci gave strict warnings about the coming winter and the ongoing epidemic.
“We’re completely hurt,” Fauci told the Washington Post, angering the White House. “This is not a good situation. All the stars go to the wrong place and winter season with people living indoors. You cannot possibly be put in a worse position. “
On Friday, states across the US posted record numbers.
In Illinois, facing 20,000 new cases in two days, Governor J.B. Pritzker said that if the pace of house spills did not slow down, an order to stay home is possible – before his office announced that He self-segregated for the third time after being exposed to the virus.
With a record 10,374 new infections on Friday and 10,000 deaths this week, Pritzker was asked if he would order people to stay indoors, as required by Illinois and several other states in the spring.
“We are in a bad situation [but] I am not looking at the widespread mitigation of staying at home… as something I will do in the coming days or weeks, “I said.” But I cannot guarantee you that it will be two weeks or three from now. Looks like the week. I don’t know yet. “
Kentucky reported 2,302 new cases and 10 more deaths on Friday. More than 1,000 people were hospitalized. Governor Andy Beshear urged 80 counties classified as “red areas” to follow the state’s emergency recommendations. Last week, 68 counties were on the red-zone list.
“I know we have been in this battle for so long that it is easy to become numb to the scary headlines and the high case numbers,” Beshar said. “This is normal. It is human nature. But you have to understand that this is the most dangerous Kovid-19 I’ve ever been in the Commonwealth and is leading our partner Kentucky to become more ill, hospitalized and dying.”
Kansas added a record 5,418 new cases in two days as hospitals warned of severe stress. This increase brought the state’s Kovid case up 5.9% from Wednesday to 97,633. State total. To bring ९ ६. जोड़ा added deaths. The deaths have more than doubled since mid-September.
The head of the health department of Kansas, Drs. Lee Norman said the cases are “just skyrocketing” because people are spending more time indoors, not being diligent about masks or social distance to attend public events and family gatherings. He said he was concerned that the cases would increase again along with Thanksgiving, while many officials “have done nothing” to investigate the increase.
In Texas, a district judge upheld the order of the businesses of El Paso County’s top elected official, while the area fights an alarming increase in cases. The decision of El Paso’s 34th district court Judge Bill Moody came at the state’s request as federal military medical teams deployed in the border area.
El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniago ordered a two-week shutdown of non-essential activities last weekend. Making his decision, Moody pointed out that during the Spanish flu pandemic of the early 20th century, city and county officials had the right to respond as they “needed to protect the health and financial interests of their individual communities” .
The Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, has argued that Samaniego’s order is illegal because it goes against Governor Greg Abbott’s statewide order to reopen businesses. Chris Hilton, a lawyer with the Texas Hilton General’s office, said the states would appeal against Moody’s order.
El Paso joins 10 other cities in Texas, including Houston, San Antonio, and several communities in the Rio Grande Valley to receive assistance from the Department of Defense at the request of state officials.
