“We can still control it” by wearing masks, being careful around social disturbances and holidays, Assistant Secretary of Health Brett Girir said in an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show.

Giroir cautioned residents against epidemiological precautions, underlining that local authorities in some states “may take more drastic measures because cases will increase if we do not make changes.”
Already, some states with populous city centers have withdrawn the epidemic ban, reflecting measures taken earlier this year.
Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker (D) announced the withdrawal of some coronavirus restrictions on Tuesday, such as restrictions on indoor food and bars.
However, some local courts have intervened against epidemic measures in the second round.

Whitmer imposed some of the nation’s most stringent measures in COVID-19 measures, which led to a fight over Trump’s sanctions.
The country, as Giroir’s remarks relate to the increase in coronovirus cases and hospitals, sets daily records.
“Yes, we are identifying more cases, but in fact cases are increasing, and we know that there are going to be hospitalizations,” Giroir said.
“Now [daily hospitalization] The peak was in 70,000, in July, we are about 42, 43,000 now, so we are very low in July. But those going up are real. And we know deaths are increasing, unfortunately, ”he said.
According to the COVID tracking project, at the beginning of October, there are about 43,000 people in a hospital with coronovirus above 30,000.
According to Johns Hopkins University data, the US has averaged about 71,000 new COVID-19 cases per day in the past week.
Girir said that many areas of the country are experiencing high traffic volumes in medical facilities, although overall hospitalization rates in hospital are lower than the peak in summer.
