Expectations of corona deaths in America will reach 300,000 by the end of the year

Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb warned, on Sunday, that deaths from Covid-19 disease, which is caused by the emerging corona virus in the United States, could reach 300,000 by the end of this year. .

However, Gottlieb indicated that this number may be different, depending on how the pandemic is dealt with, and how it is contained.

Gottlieb said in an interview with "Face the Nation", which is broadcast by the "CBS" news network, that the United States witnessed two waves of the Corona epidemic, "the first occurred in New York, and the second is now retreating in the southeast and southwest of the country." A third wave is expected.

It is noteworthy that the number of injuries in the United States has exceeded the five million mark, while the number of deaths has reached about 163,000 deaths, and the numbers are still rising in 11 US states.

Gottlieb expressed his concern that the epidemic will deepen further in rural areas, after it has become widespread throughout the country.

And injuries in the United States increased rapidly, starting from the end of last June, and the daily number of injuries reached about 70 thousand injuries since mid-July, after most states lifted orders to stay at home and reopen the economy with the encouragement of US President Donald Trump, and the Republican Party, which controls a lot. From affected states.

Despite this, schools began to open in several states, including where the epidemic is spreading, also with the encouragement and urging of President Trump.

As children prepare to return to school, Gottlieb said, "There has to be a testing system, so that teachers are screened before they enter the classroom."

However, Gottlieb doubted that this kind of test would ideally be successful, due to "a lack of resources and capacity in most regions."

The deaths in the country have taken an ascending path, repeatedly crossing the threshold of 1,000 deaths two weeks ago.

The United States is witnessing controversy and calls for the return to close the economy again, in light of the increase in the number of new infections with the Corona virus, which President Trump rejects.

According to the latest statistics received this week, five states are responsible for more than 40 percent of injuries in the United States, and they are California, Florida, Texas, New York and Georgia.

As infection rates rose, US health officials urged residents to use masks in public places, and appealed to them to avoid gatherings to help control the spread of the disease.
