COVID-19 in the US Running Out of Control

CNN is reporting that 41 states in the US are reporting a 10% increase in the number of cases in a week. It appears that US is losing the battle against COVID and Americans do want to take the necessary precautions to ensure the virus is controlled. In another report it mentioned that 22 million Americans had died from the virus.
Does the US need to change the way they are doing things to control the spread of the virus?

I think the problem with the US is they think they are immune despite all the people dying left, right and centre. In a way it doesn’t help that Trump deflected the truth for so long and then that he recovered so quickly. People are thinking if this 70 year old who is overweight can shrug it off its not a problem. I think after the election the real figures will start to emerge and then it will be panic. Don’t forgot the Americans believe you only get it if you drink Corona beer!! 🙂

Do you mean that 22 million Americans had died due to covid-19? I seriously doubt it

Yes. America needs to change the way they are handling the COVID-19 issue .
Secondly, weather added to the returning of COVID-19 in the west.

9 024176 (as of 30/10/20) Americans died of covid-19. I think there’ll be a new eagerness to fight covid after the election.

David-; in need clarify on that figure, is it 9,024,176 or you meant to write some other figure.

David Matlala replied 3 months ago

Hi Jackson, that figure is for known covid-19 cases.
For deaths the figure is 236473.

Yes it’s true, but it’s a question of politicing. Politicians have misled the masses in the way they act, speak, and work. There is no political will to control the virus. You see the way Mr Trump takes himself, even after he got the virus, he didn’t tell masses that it’s real and now they are paying the ultimate price which I think will haunt him too.

Americans think that money can solve everything.They refused to obey travel restrictions and Corona cases are increasing daily,if Americans do not take up measures seriously,it will be the end of America being super power.

Apologies it appears I read an article incorrectly, it could have been a forecast, but I need to find the article again.
I agree that some people think they are bullet proof and that they do not need to worry about COVID and it appears that the US is the worst in the world when it comes to the response. It also does not help when the president makes fun of doctors and also makes fun of remedies for the virus especially when he said that people should drink disinfectant. Yes I know it is probably a warped sense of humour but in times of crisis that sort of humour does not help the situation. I really think Americans have been more wrapped up in the Black Lives Matter movement and the election that they have forgotten about the real issue and that is people are dying from a virus where they should not be.

I think COVID-19 is now a money making situation. I mean government is making merchandise of the situation, they are not telling us the truth about the pandemic.

The sooner the US gets the elections done with, the better. The new administration must then hit the ground running with covid-19 and China.

I think its 9million infected and 228000 have died so far. The problem is that the new infections are at 90000 per day

The figures are still rising so whoever wins the election is going to have their work cut out trying to get it back under control.

For the last 2 days ,the total number of deaths due to Covid 19 has reduced to less than 2000 people in a day.I hope they have done some good thing about the disease.

But it is still spreading very quickly and they need to get it under control and stop playing catchup
