Global deep observation: 400000 dead! Spring, summer, autumn and winter of American anti epidemic

From Losangeles county to novel coronavirus pneumonia, the first confirmed case in the United States is more than 1 million. It has become the first state in the United States to exceed 3 million in California, and the total number of cases in the United States has exceeded 24 million. Within a few days, the record breaking epidemic data of one county, one state and one country summed up the anti epidemic achievements of the United States in this year in a cruel way.

There is also a novel coronavirus pneumonia: the latest statistics show that as of 14:21 pm Eastern time 19 (3:21 am 20 hours in Beijing), the number of new crown pneumonia cases in the United States has exceeded 400 thousand.

No matter by what measure, the severity of the epidemic in the United States ranks first in the world. What kind of mistake has brought the most powerful country in the world to this stage?

“We had a chance.”

Recently, the New York Times published a long article entitled “how the United States laid its own foundation for failure”, pointing out that almost during the whole epidemic period, political polarization and exclusion of science greatly hindered the ability of the United States to prevent and control the epidemic, and the most obvious and serious harm was caused by the White House.

After interviewing hundreds of health circles, politicians and community leaders across the United States, and consulting some e-mails and government records, the New York Times summed up the root causes of the failure of anti epidemic in the United States by combing the four seasons of the epidemic in the United States.

Spring: hasty restart lost opportunity

Public health experts believe that most cases in the United States can be traced back to the turning point in April last year. Before that, the first outbreaks in Northeast China, such as New York, led to the implementation of home orders in most states. If we strengthen virus detection and contact tracking at that time and continue to suspend school, we will have a good chance to prevent the spread of the epidemic. However, in mid April, the White House openly encouraged the States to restart the economy, leading to the resurgence and worsening of the epidemic.

The most obvious consequence of the restart is Texas. After the full restart in April, the daily increase of cases in the state from late May to late July increased 10 times, from about 1000 cases to 10000 cases. In the words of Dr. Jose Basquez, director of health in Star County, Texas, the outbreak developed “like a wildfire in the bush.”.

With the continuous deterioration of the epidemic, Texas finally became the second state in the United States after California where the number of cases exceeded one million.

Summer: Science on the sidelines

This is also a period when science was marginalized by all levels of government in the United States, and directly triggered the largest turnover of public health officials in the history of the United States. Since the outbreak in the United States, hundreds of state and local health officials have been dismissed or voluntarily resigned.

Florida’s anti epidemic performance was the most typical example of anti science at that time. As a close political ally of President trump, Florida governor de Santis ignored the professional opinions of scientists. Instead, he asked atlas, the White House “pseudo expert” who advocated “mass immunity” and other heresies. It was in August that they jointly pushed the resumption of face-to-face teaching in schools, eventually making Florida the third state in the United States with more than one million cases.

Fall: Masks continue to be ignored

Despite the scientific evidence that masks can help prevent the disease effectively, at least 26 states resisted masks and other recommendations until last fall.

In this regard, South Dakota is the most representative. Although novel coronavirus pneumonia was the highest in the United States, governor Christie Norm still publicly denigrated the effectiveness of masks. What’s more striking is that last summer, hundreds of thousands of participants without masks at the state’s stergis International Motorcycle conference finally created the largest super communication event in the United States so far.

Ironically, trump himself was also diagnosed with the new coronavirus in the autumn, but he still insisted that the epidemic situation in the United States was at a “turning point” and that the virus would “disappear” soon.

Winter: record number of deaths

At this time, after nearly a year of political differences and uncontrolled spread of the virus, almost all parts of the United States were affected. Take California, the most populous state in the United States, as an example. In the spring of last year, it first implemented the home order and once controlled the epidemic. However, with the arrival of winter, it once again took a detour.

At that time, the US media exposed how California governor Gavin Newson and San Francisco Mayor London Brad attended a birthday party at the French restaurant in Napa Valley, criticizing them for “saying one thing and doing another.”.

In Southern California, there are many people who oppose the mask order and the home order. Health officials have pointed out that those who relaxed their vigilance during Thanksgiving brought the state to another turning point.

“As the calendar turns to a new page…”

Novel coronavirus pneumonia accounts for 20% of the world’s total population but only 4% of the world’s population. In the words of an article in the New York Times, “the United States, with its wealth, technology and national strength above the rest of the world, has now become the country with the highest concentration of infection and death.”.

The article points out that the epidemic has brought major challenges to the United States, including the birth of a record unemployment rate, but without the White House’s national strategy, no state can completely stop the spread of the epidemic. “There is a gap between serious and not serious countries in adopting restrictive measures.”.

At the end of the article, it is worrisome to remind that the five days with the highest number of deaths in a single day in the United States all occurred in January this year. As the calendar turns to a new page, the virus is becoming more terrible than ever.

It’s true. According to CNN, studies have estimated that the number of infections in the United States is actually four times higher than reported, and about 35% of the deaths may not be reported.

Meanwhile, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that the mutated new coronavirus may become the main virus spreading in the United States by March this year.

Judging from the current anti epidemic chaos in the United States, the mistakes that have been made for one year have not been fundamentally corrected, and all kinds of anti epidemic disputes with political lines are still continuing. In the words of Dr. Marissa, a public health expert at the University of South Florida, it was the failure of the White House at the beginning, and then the failure of the leadership of the States, which led to the polarization of the whole epidemic response and the extension of the life span of the virus, “these costs show the great failure of the US government at all levels.”.
