U.S. National Security Adviser confirms that many officials have been isolated due to close contact with him
On Monday (July 27) local time, the White House confirmed that US National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien had been diagnosed with the new crown virus.
O'Brien is the highest-ranking official among Trump's confirmed infected patients. O'Brien is 54 years old. According to sources, he was diagnosed with the infection after attending a family gathering during vacation. His daughter who is going to college was the first confirmed member of the family. The White House stated that O'Brien has not had close contact with Trump recently and that "the president and the vice president are not exposed to risk."
However, the media pointed out that this risk has already existed two months ago. In May, the media revealed that at least a dozen secret service personnel and officials of the White House were diagnosed, including a Trump personal secret service entourage. The confirmed contacts with the White House during the same period also include the personal assistant of Trump's daughter Ivanka and Katie Miller, the press secretary of US Vice President Pence.
In addition, many senior officials in the White House Epidemic Working Group have also been in self-isolation for two weeks due to close contact with the confirmed persons, including Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. , Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, and Stephen Hahn, director of the Food and Drug Administration.
In addition, the current infection situation in the US military is not optimistic.
CNN reported that the military currently has at least 25,590 confirmed cases of new crown. The Military Times pointed out that in early July, the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. military increased by 33%, more than double the national growth rate during the same period. Among them, the Air Force and Marine Corps had severely increased infection rates. , The Army experienced a surge of 55%, 41%, and 38% of cases respectively.
Some commentators believe that although high-level military officials said that once the vaccine is available, the United States can resume normal military activities, but based on the current high data, this idea may be too optimistic. Some commentators pointed out, “We have good reason to question this. Optimistic", affected by the new crown epidemic, the US military may not be able to return to normal operations in the near future.
The overall situation of the U.S. epidemic continues to deteriorate, and the number of hospitalizations and deaths continues to rise
As of now, over 4.27 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia, and over 147,000 have died, respectively exceeding and close to a quarter of the total number of diagnoses and deaths worldwide. CNN pointed out that there are currently 12 states in the United States that have reported more than 100,000 confirmed populations, of which California tops the list with 452,000 confirmed cases, followed by Florida, New York and Texas.
The "New York Times" even pointed out that in the past two weeks, 40 states have reported continuous increases in the number of confirmed cases, and as many as 18 states set a new high in a single day of new confirmed cases last week. On July 24, the United States reported a total of 73,500 new confirmed cases in a single day, which was almost the same as the 75,697 newly confirmed cases in a single day set on July 16. The report pointed out that the current average number of confirmed cases in the United States in seven days has reached 66,100, which is more than double the number a month ago.
In addition to the rapid increase in new confirmed cases, death and hospitalization records have also continued to soar.
