Ignoring coronavirus can lead to 65% infection in the U.S. population.

Coronavirus The increasing number of infections worldwide

The New York Times said on Friday that if CDC does nothing to stop the coronavirus from spreading, between 160 million and 214 million people could be infected in the United States and between 200,000 and 1.7 million people could die.
The results were based on the analysis of the coronavirus spread model in the U.S. during a closed discussion with CDC officials and some 50 experts last month.
The large-scale infection in the U.S. is expected to occur intensively over different periods of time in different communities and last for at least a year, it said.
There were also warnings that the U.S. health system would collapse if such a scenario becomes a reality.
There are currently only 925,000 people in the U.S. hospital.
However, such a worst-case scenario could be sufficiently mitigated if states, businesses and citizens take action to curb the spread of coronavirus.”
“When people change their behavior, these models are no longer valid,” said Lauren Gardner, a professor at Johns Hopkins University who creates an infectious disease model. There is still much room for improvement,” he said.
To prevent the spread of coronavirus, increased infection tests, tracking movements, keeping people at distance and telecommuting have been suggested, and in fact, the CDC is reportedly studying delicate models that reflect changes in intervention.
In fact, the number of coronavirus infections increased rapidly in Korea on February 21, but the number of infections is decreasing rapidly due to rapid infection tests, identification of pathways for infectious diseases, and the number of people who are infected with the virus, distance themselves from people, telecommuting, and washing hands.
The whole world must learn a lot about Korea’s handling of coronavirus.
