On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, U.S. set a new record of 3,054 deaths from COVID-19 in one day. On Thursday, December 10, 2020, the Director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Robert Redfield, issued a warning about the worsening death toll from COVID-19, saying that the nation is likely to see more deaths from the virus each day than from 9/11 attacks or Pearl Harbor. During an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations, Dr. Redfield said, “We are in the timeframe now that probably for the next 60 to 90 days we’re going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9/11 (2,900 deaths) or we had at Pearl Harbor (2,400 deaths).” He also said, “The reality is that the vaccine approval this week is not going to really impact any degree for the next 60 days.” Once more people become vaccinated, the spread of the virus will likely to slow down and gradually reaching herd immunity threshold. Dr. Redfield reminds all American to double down on basic precautions (mask wearing, avoiding indoor gatherings, washing hands thoroughly, practicing social distance, obtaining sufficient amount of rest and nutrition) in the short term until vaccines become widely available.
