Nearly 100,000 people in the US died of corona virus infection (COVID-19, Chinese virus) in the first month Mr. Joe Biden took power.
According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, an estimated 99,763 people in the United States died from complications of the corona virus during Mr. Biden’s first month in the White House.
At the time of Mr. Biden’s inauguration, the number of deaths caused by COVID-19 infection nationwide was 397,611. Just about a month later, this figure peaked at 500,000, when the total number of corona virus deaths in the United States reached 497,374 on Saturday (February 20).
To this statistic, Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s leading infectious disease doctor, feels “Almost unbelievable”. He said: “It was just too overwhelming to look at the numbers, almost unbelievable. People will talk about this for decades to come. ”
While it took 88 days since the first death on February 29, 2020, when the United States hit 100,000 deaths, it was only about a month since Mr. Biden took office. This has increased from nearly 400,000 to 500,000.
Mr. Biden himself has affirmed after taking the oath of office that: “There is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of a pandemic over the next few months.”
Biden’s comment came after he signed a mandatory order to wear masks and social isolation in every federal building and federal district. And it is worth noting that he himself and later family members both violated this order.
In another development, in New York state, the US Department of Justice is believed to have opened an investigation into the fact that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo concealed the number of deaths from COVID-19 infection in nursing homes as well. like other state long-term care facilities during the pandemic.
For this government-rocking case, New York Legislative Council Commissioner Ron Kim – a Queens Democrat – added that he was threatened by Mr. Cuomo’s political career. Mr. Cuomo even warned that he could “destroy” Senator Kim if he did not join the ranks and was willing to protect the officials involved in this incident.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was “100% confident” in Cuomo’s threat to the New York MP, adding that “That is the familiar style of Andrew Cuomo”.
“It’s sad to say this, but it’s in the familiar style of Mr. Andrew Cuomo,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s Morning Joe in an interview on Feb. 18.
“A lot of people in New York state get those kinds of calls,” Mr. Bill de Blasio continued. “This kind of oppression is nothing new. I believe Mr. Ron Kim, and it is very, very sad. No civil servant, no one who dares to speak the truth deserves to be treated that way. “
At the same time, the Mayor of New York City also recommends that his residents wear two masks at the same time, instead of one, according to the New York Daily News.
“Out of all the things we learned from the crisis [dịch bệnh] Hey, perhaps most profound is the power of the mask, ” Bill de Blasio said at a press conference on February 18. “Two masks are better than one,” added the mayor.
