Often, local authorities at the state and County levels imposed quarantines, while Federal authorities only distributed recommendations. The US President opposed the quarantine from the very beginning, then recognized it as a necessary measure, and later began to call for an early “opening” of the economy in compliance with security measures.
“It was the right decision. The President saved 3-4 million lives. But we also need to take into account the other side of the health data – how long-term quarantines affect Americans,” McEnany was quoted as saying.
She clarified that the diagnosis of cancer during the quarantine has decreased by 80%, and this also leads to the death of people.
The current American leader took credit for avoiding the death of two million people in the United States from COVID-19.
