“It’s terrible, terrible,” said Anthony Fauci, an infectious disease expert and advisor to US President Joe Biden, commenting on the toll.
Fauci commented in an interview with the American “CNN” network, adding, “We have not known anything like this for more than 100 years, since the 1948 epidemic.”
“This is something that will remain in history. Within decades, people will talk about these times when many people died.”
The figures of Johns Hopkins University, which became a reference in the epidemic file, showed that the death toll had exceeded 498,000 deaths, as of Sunday night, Monday.
The United States announced the first death from “Covid-19” disease, on February 29, 2020.
Three months later, the country crossed the 100,000 mark, according to “AFP.”
It crossed the threshold of 400,000 deaths in January on the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, and he made fighting the epidemic his top priority at the beginning of his term.
This means that within a month or a little more, more than 100,000 Americans have died.
The United States is the country most affected by the epidemic in the world, in addition to the harsher death toll, the country groans with the largest number of infected people, at 28 million.
