The former head of state of the US program for development of vaccines Rick bright has predicted that the US may have to face “the worst winter in modern history” because of the pandemic coronavirus. About it reports BBC News.
During a speech in the U.S. Congress he said that because of the inaction of the government in the early stages of the epidemic, “lost lot of lives”, and predicted even greater problems in the country.
He also said that in January raised at the highest level in the Ministry of health and social services a question about the lack of medical equipment, but “received no answer”.
Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump took the technician who was responsible for the development of a vaccine against coronavirus, with a high post in the health sector. Bright, in turn, said that the head of state did it in retaliation for criticism of his methods of combating the virus.
According to the latest data, the U.S. recorded more than 1.4 million cases of infection with coronavirus. In total, the country has more than 85 thousand people died in the pandemic.
