Frieden was responding to recent attempts to boost Herb’s immunity in response to Covid-19. The idea is being pushed by people eager to prevent economic losses from the epidemic.
Senior White House administration officials discussed the controversial declaration, written by scientists, in a call with reporters on Monday that advocated such an approach.
But the idea is “a dangerous disorder unsupported by scientific evidence” that carries the risk of “significant discoloration and mortality in the entire population,” 80 scientists from around the world wrote in an open letter.
“Any infection anywhere is potentially a threat elsewhere because if you feel good and a problem, even if it doesn’t have long-term consequences, you can spread it to the person who dies from it. And that’s what we’re seeing. We are the country, “Frieden said.
Frieden said it is impossible to protect the vulnerable just from spreading. The letter said that the rapid spread of the virus leads to epidemics, as there is no evidence that people are protected for a long time after being infected, according to the letter.
The best way to achieve widespread immunity would be through vaccination, Frieden said.
“The concept (bunch immunity) really comes from the vaccine,” Fried said. “When you vaccinate enough people, the disease stops spreading, and it can be% 0%, 0%, 0% for various diseases.”
Heavy impact across the country
There has been a surge in new cases across the country in recent days, indicating that a second forecast has been made.
South Dakota on Wednesday recorded 876 new cases in a single day, according to the state health department. Secretary of State for Health Dr. According to Rachel Levine, at least 1,000 new cases a day have been reported in Pennsylvania for nine consecutive days.
Kentucky Govt. Andy Basheer told reporters Wednesday that he thinks the state is in the “third growth” of its coronavirus.
And with the number of cases on the rise, Missouri admitted a record 1,413 hospitals with the virus Tuesday, according to the Missouri Health Department.
With an increase in cases in Tennessee, the virus is having a greater impact on older residents, and people in rural areas are reporting twice as many deaths as in urban areas, Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piersey announced Wednesday.
“This means that these are no longer limited to young people or college-age students who are not limited to the people around and around them, now that middle-aged people are at high risk in us and in us and so I think it’s important for you to note that.” Said.
“I know people want to internalize the fact that only those of us who live our normal daily lives are at risk of this and need more attention,” Pierce added.
Political leaders and other officials are at risk
The daily behavior of some politicians has been affected as they have come out against the spread of the virus.
President Donald Trump is no longer at risk of transmission after a virus infection, Dr. Ant. Anthony Fawcett said Wednesday, but there could still be people around him.
“I can’t assure anyone else there – they’ve been tested as to whether they’ve been careful in their interactions with people,” FatCa told CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell on Wednesday. ”
He also warned that just because the president appeared well after his illness did not mean that others would experience the same.
State leaders in Tennessee and Indiana are now approaching their own interactions with the virus.
Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Christina B Wednesday X said Wednesday that she, an adult daughter and 23-month-old grandson, has tested positive for Covid-19. The health commissioner added that he participated in contact tracing but explained that she was not in close contact with anyone except her immediate family.
And Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said Wednesday that he expects to be tested “on a regular basis” in the coming days following the news that a member of his security details had tested positive.
Sacrifice of Thanksgiving gatherings
Gathering around the table for Thanksgiving meals may be a “sacred part of American tradition,” but Fawcett told O’Donnell that the holiday would look very different this year.
“You have to bite the bullet and sacrifice that social gathering, unless you make sure the people you are dealing with are not infected. Either they have been tested recently, or they are living a lifestyle.” They have no communication with anyone except you and your family, ”he said.
During a meeting with the country’s governors on Tuesday, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said small gatherings are becoming a growing source of coronavirus transmission. The call was obtained by NDO CNN.
“Right now what we’re seeing as a growing threat is getting really infected through small household gatherings,” Redfield said. “Especially with Thanksgiving, we think it’s really important to emphasize the vigilance of these ongoing reduction measures in home configuration.”
Dr. Jonathan Rainer, a professor of medicine at George and Washington Washington University, said Wednesday that he advises people not to consider having an indoor Thanksgiving dinner with people who are not at home near them.
“If you’re lucky enough to live in a part of the country where the weather will be mild in November, have an outdoor Thanksgiving. (But) I think … places in the country where winter comes early, I think you really should take care. Rainer told CNN’s “New Day.”
“Next year is going to be a lot better. Let’s get through this, and let’s get through this safely.”
