Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the NIAID, has said which US regions will be hit the hardest by coronavirus this winter.
As coronavirus cases across the United States continue to surge, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert has warned of case surges in specific regions.
In a recent interview with CNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that throughout the winter, the United States is going to be hit hard by the coronavirus. But where will be the locations hit the hardest? According to Dr. Fauci, outbreaks seem to be most prevalent in the northwest and central parts of the US, as “they never had the kind of hospital and intensive care facility and flexibility that some of the larger hospitals in larger cities have.”
The northwest and central parts of the US aren’t the only points of concern either, as data has indicated that there are surges occurring in other locations of the country such as El Paso and Texas. In both of these locations, hospitalizations have reportedly tripled in just over two weeks’ time. CNN has also reported that data from Wyoming has indicated that COVID-19 hospitalizations are at an all-time high as of Wednesday. For more information on this story, check out this link here.
