After the first cases were diagnosed in China and six months after the outbreak of control, the US has crossed the Kovid-19 to 150,000 confirmed deaths.
According to Johns Hopkins University’s World Coronavirus Virus Tracker, the US death toll is the highest in the world by a significant margin and reached 150,034 on Wednesday.
More than 4.3 million people have been infected with Kovid-19, a disease caused by the novel coronovirus SARS-COV-2. As summer wore on, outbreaks have spread to the Americas sun belt, from Florida to southern California, and are likely to spread to the central states. Meanwhile, some early epidemic centers such as New York City have brought the virus significantly under control.
The epidemic has rewritten almost every aspect of daily life in the United States. Economic activity affected by public health restrictions and virus outbreaks brought an unemployment rate of over 11% in June. Restaurants, museums and cinemas are closing as states try to reopen, watch outbreaks and then restrict activities.
Schools, once thought to reopen in the fall, are battling to make the buildings safer for teachers and students. This week, the country’s second-largest teachers’ union authorized local strikes as a “last resort” bargaining chip when districts failed to implement coronovirus protection measures.
Meanwhile, one of the most basic measures to bring the virus under control are challenges thanks to a fumble and anemic federal response led by the Trump administration.
Extensive outbreaks and week-long delays in test results have reduced contact tracing. Those fundamental failures have had a knock-on effect, as outbreaks have reached nursing homes and continue to fill intensive care units with the most vulnerable, sick and resource-intensive patients.
As the coronovirus began to spread rapidly in March, and without federal leadership, state governors and hospitals began wearing ventilators and personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves and gowns for front-line medical staff from supplies at many locations There were few and those who started themselves. Kovid-19 is dying.
Politics of an epidemic
Politics has played a central role in how the epidemic has been dealt with. The president initially removed the virus and predicted that it would disappear – then, despite America becoming the world’s pandemic, he reopened businesses and now schools before the continued decline in cases suggested by federal health experts Urged.
Some mitigation methods, such as the widespread use of face coverings in public, have been underestimated by the President, who has recently supported its use.
The president’s controversial shocking of wearing masks and promoting suspected treatment for the virus has also publicly set out against his own health experts, including Drs. Also included is Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease specialist for six presidents.
Trump has deferred restrictions on travel from China to the US and then parts of Europe as evidence that his administration handled the outbreak well, despite the limited impact that those measures took as a virus outbreak Huh.
The transition to reopening for business increased in many states with a mandate or with official recommendations to wear face masks and to practice social foresight.
States such as Florida have kept their economies open despite having full hospitals, but there are indications that the economy will not be enough to roll back the economy to record highs in pre-pandemic days. Last week, for the first time in months, there was an increase in the number of people claiming unemployment benefits.
Public health experts are also concerned about the level of infection in states such as Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and Kentucky, while the upsurge in Arizona and California in Texas as well as Florida in June and July has put many hospitals under stress.
Coronoviruses have had extremely adverse effects on blacks, Latins, and Native Americans, greatly affected by racial disparities in chronic health conditions, access to affordable and quality doctors and hospitals, and disparities in risk of income, housing, and workplace exposure.
There is a global push to develop a vaccine and some promising trials are underway in the US, with even public health officials anticipating facing potential vaccination to deliver any plans.
Meanwhile, most senior federal health officials, such as Fauci and the director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Drs. Robert Redfield warns that the outbreak in America is far from control, a “disturbing” trajectory and has brought America “to its knees”.
All of this has pressured Congress to pass another coronavirus aid package, which includes funding for schools, unemployment benefits and hunger relief. But so far, there is a gap between the parties, with Republicans proposing to cut extended unemployment aid to $ 200 per week. Meanwhile, with gaps in aid, observers are predicting that a wave of ejection may come to pass.
