The chief expert of the Coronavirus Working Group in the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said the country had “serious problems”.
According to data from Friday in the USA, a record number of new cases of coronavirus was registered: more than 40,000. Thus, in general, more than 2.4 million cases of infection were recorded in the country, more than 125,000 patients died.
At a briefing on Friday, the coronavirus working group urged people born between the 1980s and 2000s to get tested for coronavirus, even if they have no symptoms.
According to Fauchi, the country is facing a serious problem in certain areas.
“So what happens in one area of the country can ultimately have consequences in other areas,” he said.
According to Fauci, an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection can be associated with everything from the removal of restrictions too early to the failure of citizens to follow instructions for combating coronavirus.
“People infect other people, and then ultimately you infect someone vulnerable,” he said.
Fauci added that the spread of coronavirus in the US did not stop, although in some states there is a noticeable improvement in the situation.
