Corona virus may cause more than 2 lakh deaths in America: White Housetechblog
Two top US government scientists leading the fight against the corona virus said the corona virus (covid-19) pandemic could lead to the deaths of nearly two million people. White House task force members Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birks said that 100,000 to 240,000 Americans could be killed despite social distancing guidelines that shut down schools, restaurants, cinema and all non-essential activities in the US.
Both of them warned that if nothing is done, the death toll in the US could go up to 1.5 million to 2 million. While presenting a chart, Birx said that one lakh to 240,000 people may die due to this epidemic in the country. He further said that social distancing is working and it is effective and it is probably the best strategy so far.
Deborah Birks said that there is no magic bullet nor any magic vaccine or therapy. This is just behavior. Only by this social distancing behavior can you reduce the death toll from corona. Stating the death toll, he said that we think it is a limit. We truly believe and hope that we can do better everyday. Let me tell you that during the White House daily briefing these things went somewhere.
At the same time, US President Donald Trump has once again warned his countrymen in the midst of the rising outbreak of the dreaded corona virus. US President Donald Trump said that the outbreak of the corona virus (Kovid-19) epidemic has reached its peak in the country and that the countrymen should be prepared for two weeks of ‘very painful’. US President Donald Trump said at a press conference on Tuesday, “I want every American to be prepared for the hard days ahead.” As experts are predicting, our coming two weeks are going to be tough. Let it be a lie. He said that we see some light at the end of the tunnel, but the next two weeks are going to be very painful.
According to Johns Hopkins University, 3700 people have died and 185,000 have been infected with the Corona virus (Kovid-19) in the US.
