On the 4th, the cumulative number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States exceeded 900,000.
Some U.S. public health experts believe that behind this "astronomical number", in addition to reflecting the transmission power of the Omicron strain, it also reflects the failure of the U.S. epidemic prevention policy.
The Associated Press said that the cumulative number of deaths from new crown infections in the United States has exceeded the population of some large cities in the United States, such as San Francisco and Indianapolis.
The Associated Press commented that despite having world-class medical institutions, the number of deaths from the new crown in the United States is higher than that of any other country, and the actual number of people who died directly or indirectly from the new crown virus is even considered to be much higher than the reported data.
For example, some experts believe that there are cases of "misreporting the cause"; some people with chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes are unable or unwilling to seek medical treatment due to the epidemic and die without timely treatment.
The number of deaths from the new crown in the United States has risen from 800,000 to more than 900,000 in less than two months.
Some public health experts have pointed out that the rapid increase in deaths is related to both the highly contagious Omicron strain and anti-vaccine sentiment in the United States.
Of the more than 900,000 deaths, most died after the COVID-19 vaccine was approved for use.
Schaffstein, a professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said the vaccine is very safe and effective, but the amount of politics and misinformation surrounding it is staggering.
Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, said, "In terms of helping people get vaccinated, fighting rumours, and fighting the politicization of vaccinations, we have failed."
At present, U.S. policymakers seem to be running out of options to persuade the American people to get vaccinated.
Failure in these areas is the failure of the United States as a country.Keywords:
