Dr. Deborah Birx, a medical worker in the US has warned governors of a ‘broad surge’ of COVID-19 cases across the U.S. despite President Trump’s claim of overpowering the virus, oyogist.com learnt.
She warned that the U.S. cannot afford to wait until the population reaches herd immunity to the virus, this would bring ‘so much suffering and death in the country, she said.
Death rates from the coronavirus are at its all time low, but the cases continue to rise steadily. Governors during the briefing by Dr Brix were urged to promote mask wearing and social distancing in their states as the only way the virus could be stopped from spreading.
‘This is a broad surge across every state where it is cooling,’ Birx told governors, according to reports.
‘We’re learning from the far north about how dramatic that spread can be, and we do not see yet improvements in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota or Wisconsin.’
” People must decrease indoor activity with family and friends with the aim of forming ‘a bridge of human behavior change over the next few weeks” She concluded.
