The US is still in danger. COVID-19 cases have been doubled in a couple of days only, the top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said on Monday. Read on to know the complete details.

Anthony Fauci, a country’s top infectious disease expert said, “The Country is still “knee-Deep” in its first wave of coronavirus pandemic. Immediate action is required to be taken to tackle the recent surge by warning risk overwhelming hospitals in the country’s south and west.

Fauci had a web interview with the National Institute Of Health Director Francis Collins in which he stated the seriousness of this situation. He said, “It’s serious and we have to take some immediate actions to resolve it.”

“But I did not consider the ongoing rise in cases a wave, it was either a surge or a resurgence of infections placed upon a baseline,’ Fauci added.

“If you look at the different countries confirmed cases scale you would see they grown up exponentially but came down to baseline. Let’s look at Europe graph, it went up initially but came down to baseline. They are currently facing some blips as they tried reopening. While the US always went up and never came down to baseline, and now we’re surging back up.”

The number of deaths is increasing with the number of confirmed cases. According to a calculation done by Johns Hopkins University, the death toll hit the US by 130,000 on Monday and the total number of confirmed cases has reached three million.

The country US is one of the hardest-hit counties by COVID-19. Though, the US has been trying to come back on the baseline with a new normal life following social-distancing and wearing masks but couldn’t be reached yet. Health officials have warned that some of the country’s hospitals are in danger of being rushed by the COVID-19 patients.

US and a few more countries are going through with their hard times and facing multiple challenges because of COVID-19. We all should pray for the world to get recovered from these hard situations created by the virus.
