The United States continues to be the country most affected by the Coronavirus pandemic that is keeping the world in crisis and millions of people confined to their homes as a containment measure in the face of the spread of the pathogen. The nation led by Donald Trump already has 542 thousand 023 confirmed cases and 21 thousand 489 deaths, but fortunately the number of recovered patients also begins to rebound and accumulates 32 thousand 369.
While the US president, as well as the White House epidemiologist, Anthony Fauci, are beginning to be optimistic about the reopening of some areas of the country during the month of May, the number of hospitalizations for COVID-19 began to accompany these statements, since they had begun to decrease.
“As the number of deaths increases, as other metrics like hospitalizations, intensive controls, and intubations began to flatten and they seem to be starting to turn a corner“said the specialist at a press conference this Sunday.
