An opinion given by the best scientist on infectious disease there, Dr. Anthony Fauci, represents a hard blow for the North American society.

The prestigious expert warned on Monday that the United States "struggles" in controlling this deadly epidemic.

He was very clear about it and he clarified, "saying otherwise would be a false statement."

This was written and reported in Washington by a CNN journalist, Devan Cole, and echoed by other local and foreign media.

During an interview given to CBS television, Fauci warned Americans that "it’s going to be a bad week," due to the escalation of cases, until they begin to flatten out.

A CBS journalist, Margaret Brennan asked Fauci:

"Are you saying, doctor, despite the deaths that we may see, that mitigation is working, and that you do have this outbreak under control?"

In parallel and in the course of a briefing, Donald Trump warned there will be "a lot of death" in the coming weeks, a statement that, according to the press, detaches from his previous focus on the virus and the desire to reopen the country to normal activity.

The same aforementioned media notified that Trump has been trying to project in recent weeks that he has the crisis under control, even during a White House briefing in mid-March.

“It’s a very contagious virus. It’s incredible. But it’s something we have under control,” he said during that meeting, when the number of cases barely exceeded 3,000.

Fauci also indicated at the time that the virus was not under control, and said in the same briefing of March that "the worst is yet to come."

As of Monday morning, according to researchers at John Hopkins University, there were more than 338,000 confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in the United States, and more than 9,600 people had died.
