Currently, more than 3 thousand people have become victims of the disease.
Deborah Birx, the White House coordinator for the fight against coronavirus, warned that the pandemic could lead to the death of up to 200,000 Americans, even under an optimistic scenario. Her statement further dashed hopes that the country could quickly recover from the global health crisis.
While the number of deaths from COVID-19 exceeded 37 thousand, and in the US reached 3 thousand, Federal and state officials are issuing grim warnings that the situation will first deteriorate and only then begin to improve.
Birx told NBC News that 200,000 people could die from the coronavirus in the United States, “even if we do everything together well, almost perfectly.”
The US continues to lead in the number of confirmed cases. As of Monday, there were more than 160,000 of them.
