According to foreign media reports, nearly 4000 new coronavirus deaths were recorded in the United States on Thursday local time - and even more ominously, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that 92000 Americans could die from cowid-19 in the next three weeks or so. Can this still give people hope? --An FDA official thinks so.
"I really think we can stop the spread of this virus by June," Dr. Paul Offit, a member of the FDA advisory committee on vaccines and related biological products, said in an interview on CNN's new day this week. Here are some of the reasons:
Meanwhile, the approved Pfizer and Moderna new coronavirus vaccines have been "significantly effective";
In addition, it is also optimistic that the incoming Biden administration is not keen on denialism, while President trump and trump officials generally hold this attitude when dealing with the new coronavirus, and the new administration will face up to the problem.
However, there are still some things that need to be paid attention to about Dr. Offit's idea. One of them is that the new coronavirus vaccine needs to be started at a rate of at least one million doses per day, so that at least 55% of the population can be vaccinated in the next few months.
Since mid December, only 11.9 million doses of the new coronavirus vaccine have been vaccinated in the United States, and at least 1.46 million people have completed two doses of the vaccine, according to the vaccine follow-up conducted by Bloomberg.
