In the USA, for every elapsed hour, 24 Americans died from COVID-19 for 24 hours a day. The total number of deaths per day amounted to 1,169 people, this is the highest figure since the start of the epidemic in the country.
The country’s medical care system is such that many millions of Americans have no insurance, and who and for what money will treat them for the disease is still unknown.
Donald Trump spoke on this subject during his daily briefing at the White House.
The US president said: “We are trying now to introduce new rules through Congress to approve a procedure that will allow these people to get money and pay for treatment, because previous legislation does not work in this situation.”
The second question is equipping hospitals with the most necessary, including masks for medical staff and ventilation devices for patients.
The head of the American administration noted that “within a week, one and a half weeks from strength, the first consignments will begin to arrive, but in order to have a supply, we will need time. In this case, the States themselves can create their own reserves of ventilation devices. We in this case we play the role of a guarantor, we insure, but we are not directly involved in placing orders, we have already done a lot. “
Health workers, for their part, are outraged by the lack of protective equipment, including a shortage of sterile gowns and masks, they demand an immediate solution to this problem, since they, who are on the front line in the war against the epidemic, have the highest risk of contracting a coronavirus.
