Fauci tests positive. World’s Covid fight far from over
By John Lee
(ECNS) -- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to the U.S. President Biden and director of the country’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The person who knows best how to prevent the pandemic in the U.S. has once criticized Trump’s epidemic prevention policies for many times, but now the “U.S. anti-Covid captain” has made up his mind to quit his job even if Joe Biden is re-elected, which shows Fauci’s helplessness facing the epidemic situation in the U.S.
Data from the Johns Hopkins University shows that as of June10th, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. in the past 28 days ranked first in the world, with more than 100,000 new cases per day on average.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this week warned of the grim epidemic situation in the U.S. According to the CDC, BA.4 and BA.5, two new subvariants evolved from the Omicron lineage are spreading rapidly in the country.
Now the U.S. with the richest medical resources and the most advanced medical technology in the world ranks first in the cumulative confirmed cases and deaths of Covid.
Disregarding citizens' lives, the U.S. government downplayed Covid-19's threat and misled the public from the very first, which has planted the seeds for the epidemic spread. And some politicians refused to reflect on their anti-Covid measures and kept hyping conspiracy theories about the epidemic, trying to shift domestic contradictions.
Meanwhile, the U.S. federal government failed to take unified measures across the country, but let all its states act independently, the result is, policies of various states are different and even contradictory, following by the debates over whether to wear masks or get vaccinated.
Who will pay for the consequences? Yes, the U.S. people.
And now many senior officials serves the U.S. government have been reported infected with coronavirus and more than one million people died of the epidemic in the country. It is not a natural disaster but a man-made calamity.
The epidemic is far from over across the world. The U.S., and all the rest countries in the world should not just lie down and do nothing. Only we humans continue to take effective measures like getting vaccinated and wearing masks, and wipe out the coronavirus in the world can we eventually win this battle.
