United States overcame this Saturday the 300 thousand cases of coronavirus as the president, Donald Trump warned that next week will be “the hardest” up now and again, at the same time, to give signals of impatience with respect to measures to mitigate the crisis.
“This will probably be the week lasts, between this week and next week, and there will be lots of death”
More than a third of the hiv infections in the united States of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, are concentrated in the state of New York, whose governor, Andrew Cuomo, predicted Saturday that the peak of infections will take place in the next seven days.
The message coincided with the one expressed a few hours later by Trump, who said that there will be “lots of death” is imminent, but continued to express his wish that the country again “soon” to normal, something that contradicts the recommendations of experts in public health.
“This will probably be the week lasts, between this week and next week, and there will be a lot of death,” said Trump in his daily briefing.
MORE THAN 300 THOUSAND CASES
The united states, the country with the most infections coronavirus in the world, reached this Saturday, the 305 thousand 820 cases, double that of five days ago, with at least eight thousand and 291 people killed by the disease, according to the count, the unofficial Center of Systems, Science and Engineering (CSSE) at the Johns Hopkins University (Maryland).
While Spain and Italy, which are respectively the second and third country in number of hiv infections, “they are seeing how it falls, the number of cases” on its territory, the united States “is about 12 days behind them”, explained dr. Deborah Birx, who leads the working group of the White House against the coronavirus.
“We hope to be in the same position that Spain and Italy shortly,” he added Birx during a press conference at the White House.
The main epidemiologist of the Government of the united states, Anthony Fauci, coincided during the same act “this week and next week, the deaths are going to continue rising” in the country.
However, Fauci asked “to look at the effect of (the measures) mitigation” that have been implemented in the past two weeks, and stated that where they will be shown will be “in the number of new cases”.
NEW YORK, “ALMOST UNMANAGEABLE”
In his own press conference daily, the governor of New York he described the situation in your state of “almost unmanageable”, to recognise that, although it’s only been 30 days since I detected the first case there, “it seems like a lifetime”.
“We are approaching the peak. Depending on the model you use we are four, five, six, seven days, though some stretch up to 14 days, but our reading of the projections is that we are somewhere close to the range of the seven days,” said Cuomo.
The governor stressed that New York is not yet prepared to cope with that peakthat will entail “the biggest challenge for the health system”, although announced that it will receive a thousand respirators donated by the chinese Government, and Trump revealed that a thousand doctors and nurses military will come to the state to strengthen its response to the crisis.
Throughout the state of New York there are at least 113 thousand 704 cases of coronavirus, 10 thousand 841 more than the Friday, while the number of deaths has reached three thousand 565, 630 more than the previous day, according to Cuomo.
TRUMP GETS IMPATIENT
Just six days after surrendering in their attempts to reopen the country for the Easter Sunday and accept what is recommended by the experts of his Government -to maintain the measures of social distance until the 30th of April-, Trump was overcome again by his instincts and was of the view that the EU should return to normal.
“We have to get back to work. We have to open our country again. We don’t want to do this for months and months and months”
“We have to get back to work. We have to open our country again. We don’t want to do this for months and months and months. Our country is not made for this”, stressed the president on measures to maintain the social distance.
That statement seemed to sway to Fauci, who climbed twice on the podium to emphasize that “the mitigation measures work,” and that americans should stay home everything possible, because what you are doing “is making a difference and we must continue with this”, by “difficult”.
In a moment, Trump regained the podium that he had just left Fauci, shade: “Yes, the mitigation works, but you know what? We’re not going to destroy our country (economically), we have to return (to normal)”.
Trump adopted this stance at the same time acknowledging that the numbers of deaths predicted for the next few months in the US, of up to 240 thousand dead, with containment measures and 2.2 million without them, “they have not been seen since perhaps the First or the Second World War”.
But the president, who was to play the re-election in November, has made it clear that his priority is the economy, and this Saturday, he said that he “would like” than the sports stadiums of the country will be full of public to August, despite the fact that the experts do not rule out that some cities are still to then at their peak of infection.
