According to the top virologist in the United States, the young Americans under the age of 35 are responsible for the renewed dramatic increase in corona infections.
Yes, those protestors and people who scoff at the police and authority and the law and insist they are the generation of ‘woke’, they know better.
At the first meeting of the American Coronavirus Task Force in two months last Friday, Fauci said: “The vast majority of people who are now getting infected are young people. They are exactly the ones we see in the newspaper articles. Those who go out in bulk now to have fun."
At the Friday meeting, Fauci said that "millennials" (people born between 1981 and 1996) were the chief driving force: "The thing you really need to understand: if you do, you are part of a larger process. Because if they become infected, they are likely to infect others.” The reason for the task force's emergency meeting was that the number of new cases every day in the US rose to an all-time high of 40,000.
A recent study by Johns Hopkins university confirmed that the US is the leading country on deaths and infections, and cited the flouting and ‘arbitrary usage’ of social distancing laws by the younger generation.
As the United States seems destined to be launched back into a lockdown over rising Coronavirus cases, experts at Johns Hopkins seem to back the Trump Administration over what is causing it.
The facts are stark: The United States has the most corona infected and dead, worldwide. The southern states are particularly badly affected by the second corona wave.
The situation in the USA seems to be getting worse, the number of new infections continues to increase every day. After easing the fight against the corona virus worldwide, the US is now returning to restrictions at least in part.
Given the rapid rise in corona infections, California Governor Gavin Newsom has again ordered the closings of bars in Los Angeles and six other districts of the US West Coast state. In addition to Los Angeles, the bars in Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, San Joaquin and Tulare have to close, as Newsom said on Sunday in the short message service Twitter.
About 13.5 million people live in the seven affected districts, which corresponds to about a third of the population of California. The bars in Los Angeles - the second largest city in the United States - had only reopened on June 19.
Restrictions were again imposed in other parts of the United States due to the continued spread of the virus. The authorities in Texas and Florida prohibited the serving of alcohol in bars.
The currently most severely affected U.S. states are in the south and west of the US Critics blame this for a rapid loosening of the containment measures.
In Texas, where numbers are also increasing, Governor Greg Abbott urged people to stay at home as much as possible and otherwise wear a mask. And the United States Navy has been affected as well.
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls for a nationwide mask requirement to contain the pandemic in the United States. The US health agency CDC also recommends that people wear masks in public whenever possible when minimum distances are impossible.
