The United State of America from every indication is having it rough with the coronavirus pandemic as the number of infections and death keeps moving in a progressive directions.
The US on Friday, became the first country in the world to record 2,000 deaths in 24 hours making it the deadliest day from the Coronavirus pandemic any country has so far seen.
In a dark day for the country’s health sector, the total number of Americans infected so far as ballooned to 535,591 and 21,409 death, the US is indeed facing one of its darkest time.
New York made up almost half of the total death toll across the US and accounted for about a third of all deaths with 9,385 deaths already in the state.
New Jersey is the second hardest-hit, with infections topping 58,151 and deaths reaching 2,183.
Dr Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus taskforce, on Friday warned it was too early to relax the government issued lockdown even though New York was showing positive results in the battle against coronavirus.
‘What we’re seeing right now is favorable signs,’ Fauci said in an interview on CNN on Friday.
‘We would want to see a clear indication that you were very, very clearly and strongly going in the right direction, because the one thing you don’t want to do is you don’t want to get out there prematurely and then wind up back in the same situation.
‘The virus kind of decides whether or not it’s going to be appropriate to open,’ he said.
‘We’re going in the right direction, let’s keep in that direction,’ Dr Fauci said.
‘Obviously we’re looking for the kinds of things that would indicate that we can go forward in a gradual way to essentially reopen the country to a more normal way,’ Fauci said, adding that it depended on a number of factors.
