Over 2.3 million infected
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are ten times more people infected than officially reported cases in the country. “There are probably 10 more people infected for each reported case,” said Robert Redfield, director of the center. According to him, this is due to infections without visible symptoms, as well as the fact that in the first months after the outbreak of a pandemic in the United States, significantly fewer tests were conducted than now. On this occasion, the head of the CDC said: “Using the methods of April and May, we probably only detected 10 percent of those infected.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially estimates the number of people currently infected in the United States at more than 2.3 million, more than in any other country in the world. The number of victims exceeds 121,000. Currently, more and more young people are getting sick.
“Real outbreaks of infection”
Robert Redfield is worried about the growing number of new infections, mainly in the southern United States, but adds that at the same time, only 110 counties are real outbreaks.

Regarding the launch of the coronavirus infection risk warning mobile app, CDC Infectious Disease Manager Jay Butler He confirmed that he could not yet say anything specific.
