The American top medical expert on the coronavirus pandemic and chief expert of coronavirus task force, Dr. Anthony Fauci, announced that the global pandemic had begun only now, Interfax.ru reports.
According to Fauci, the situation with coronavirus will worsen in the near future, since now the infection has only begun to spread actively in Brazil, South Africa and Asia.
In addition, the United States has not yet begun to control it. The bad news is that some states, in an attempt to resume operations, have begun to act too quickly, easing restrictions. Many people, especially young, violated recommendations. As a result, the rise in the number of people infected in states like California, Arizona, Florida and Texas, he explained.
According to Fauci, stopping the global COVID-19 pandemic is possible, but only if countries fight together. Otherwise, he said, the coronavirus will remain active for another several months.
Since the start of the pandemic, the number of coronavirus infected in the United States has exceeded three million. Over 132 000 people died from complications associated with COVID-19.
