Rochelle Wallensky, head of the US Public Health Agency, says she is ‘scared’

A senior US government scientist warned that the United States is experiencing “imminent catastrophe” with an increase in coronovirus cases and hospital admissions across the country.

The director of the US Public Health Agency’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explained his fears at a meeting at the White House.

“I would consider a recurring disaster,” said Rochelle Wallensky. “We have a lot of reasons to expect, but now I’m scared.”

According to the CDC, new cases of Kovid-19 reached about 60,000 last week, an increase of about 7%.
