- Bill Gates believes the US needs to do a lot more to control the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
- The number of new coronavirus cases in the US recently reached an all-time high.
- In stark contrast, the number of new coronavirus cases in countries like Italy and Spain has dropped considerably in recent weeks.
If you take a look at the growth rate of the coronavirus across any number of countries, it becomes overwhelmingly clear that the United States' response to COVID-19 has been shockingly ineffective. While the number of coronavirus cases in places like Italy and Spain has gone down considerably since the pandemic began in March, the number of new coronavirus cases in the United States is rising rapidly. Many states, with Florida and Arizona being two prime examples, are routinely setting new daily records for coronavirus infections. Meanwhile, the United States last week set a single-day record for new coronavirus cases on five consecutive days.
Commenting on the situation, Bill Gates during a recent appearance on CNN said the U.S. simply hasn't been as tough as it needs to be when it comes to issues like mask compliance, contact tracing, and enforcing quarantine. In something of an illustrative example, comedian DL Hughley fainted on stage at a comedy club in Tennessee and was later found to have the coronavirus. Meanwhile, barely anyone in the comedy club at the time was wearing a mask during his performance.
