The US President Donald trump said that the epidemiological situation in the country may deteriorate. He called attention to “the world” and to notice a trend — “it will be worse before it gets better.” At the same time, the American leader said that the deaths from the coronavirus in the United States is declining. But the country still leads in the number of victims: their number exceeded 140 thousand people.
The situation with coronavirus in the United States may, it is likely to deteriorate. This was stated by President Donald trump, speaking to journalists, RIA “Novosti”.
“Alas, it will first get worse before it gets better. I hate to say it, but things are. Look at the whole world, it is around the world, such a trend develops,” — said the American leader.
He added that the mortality from “coronavirus” reasons in America continues to decline. Nevertheless, the U.S. remains the world leader in the mortality rate since the beginning of the epidemic in the United States has passed more than 140 thousand patients with confirmed COVID-19. In addition, it recorded more than 3.8 million cases of infection.
One day, a statement of the President, the speaker of the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi expressed the hope that the White house will approach the understanding of the reality of a pandemic and “of this virus trump”.
It condemned him for his long refusal to wear a medical mask, according to Pelosi, if trump wore a mask from the beginning, it would have saved tens of thousands of people.
However, the press Secretary of the White house Keighley Makinano said that his position on the quarantine, the President of the United States Donald trump saved three or four million lives. This writes RIA “Novosti”.
In the United States at the Federal level, quarantine was introduced — this was done by the local authorities. Trump initially opposed the quarantine, then recognized it needed, but called for the speedy opening up of the economy.
“It was the right decision, the President saved three or four million lives,” said Makineni, noting that a long quarantine regulations also affect the health of citizens — for example, in medical institutions is suspended diagnosis of cancer.
“I believe that everybody makes mistakes I would be right in the end,” said a couple of days before this trump. Journalists of Fox News channel pointed out to him the error, explaining that the President confuses the mortality and mortality of infection. Trump said that the death rate from “kovida” in the United States is one of the lowest in the world, but it is absolutely not true.
While trump called “alarmist” Director, National Institute of allergic and infectious diseases in the country, Anthony Fauci. He added that still keeps with the infectious disease doctor a good relationship, but rejects the criticism in the fight against coronavirus.
According to the President, a record increase in the incidence in the United States explains the “best system in the world of testing.” The day before trump said he would not require every American to wear a protective mask. “No, I want to people had a certain freedom,” said trump.
According to trump, the experts initially advised not to wear masks, however, now argue that masks are needed. He added that in the fight against the epidemic many mistakes had been made.
Americans have less confidence in the Buddha in regard to pandemic coronavirus.
About 60% of respondents of a survey by ABC News and the Washington Post don’t trust the words of the head of state about the pandemic. This figure increased from the end of March, when the epidemic has just started, and Trump didn’t believe about 45% of the population. The credibility of the President is reduced in proportion to the increase in the number of new cases of coronavirus in the country. US residents — more than 60% want the government thought primarily about the epidemic, and not tried to “restart the economy”.
The US desperately fighting the coronavirus is even causes dissatisfaction among their closest allies overseas. In early July, the British newspaper the Guardian reported that Europe remained without one of drugs for the treatment of coronavirus — remedy “Ramdevpir”: USA bought 90% of three month supply. Access of other States to cure COVID-19 because it was considerably restricted.
The situation with the epidemic in the U.S. is so serious that in late March, trump said that if the United States from the coronavirus dies less than 200 thousand people — the struggle was crowned with success.
“If we can reduce this figure to, as we said, 200 thousand people, then, though it is a terrible figure… it would mean that we all together did a very good job,” — he stressed.
