(ANSA) - WASHINGTON, 03 MAR - While some US states such as Texas are removing all anti-Covid restrictions, the CDC, the highest authority in the health field in the United States, reiterate the alarm for a fourth wave of infections in the United States due to variants.
And they predict that up to 564,000 deaths can be reached by March 27th.
Considering that to date, since the beginning of the pandemic, the victims in the US are almost 517,000, if the forecasts of the CDC come true, there would be about 47,000 deaths in just over three weeks, with an average of almost 2,000 deaths a day. In the light of forecasts, federal authorities warn: "It is not the time to loosen or remove anti-Covid restrictions." President Joe Biden hopes that Americans and US states will continue to follow health authorities' guidelines on the use of anti-Covid masks and restrictions. "Chivuole remove the obligation to wear and face masks thinking like Neanderthals," the president said to governors of US states who intend to remove all anti-Covid restrictions. (HANDLE).
