医疗资源短缺,卫生系统压力大

哈佛大学公共卫生学院免疫学和传染病系的主任莎拉(Sarah Fortune)在该院举行的电话会议上答澎湃新闻提问时表示,抗击新冠疫情其中一个挑战就是相对较高比例的无症状感染者。据她所知,估计有40%的新冠病毒传播是无症状的。

纽约州州长科莫3月31日也抱怨道,各州和联邦政府都在争夺设备,导致每个人都需要支付更多费用。“这就像在eBay上和其他50个州一起竞拍一台呼吸机。”

纽约州护士协会成员、儿科急诊室护士肖恩·佩蒂(Sean Petty)表示,医疗用品短缺迫使他所在的医院只能给症状严重、有资格接受新冠病毒检查的患者提供口罩。

由于口罩短缺,伊利诺伊州一名重症监护室护士被告知要连续5天使用一个一次性口罩。加州一名急诊室医生说,她的同事开始把使用过的口罩储存在塑料容器里,见不同病人时再次使用。

事实上,美国每年在秋冬时期都会进入流感季,而当新冠肺炎开始在美国出现后,许多美国普通人不以为意,他们认为流感较新冠肺炎更加严重,但年复一年的应对经验又让他们习以为常。与此同时,新冠肺炎轻症患者的咳嗽、头痛、乏力等症状又很容易被当做流感处理,普通人往往会自行吃药解决。

不过,数学模型都是建立在许多假设的基础上的。因此经常会出现预测数据和未来真实数据不符的情况。2014年埃博拉流行期间,美国预测将有100万人感染,但实际感染人数约3万。

美国亚美医师协会(CAIPA)主席、执行总监刘季高博士3月24日对澎湃新闻表示,“(纽约的)情况非常非常糟糕,大部分的医院如此,尤其是比较平民化的医院,很多病人根本就没有病床,只能躺在地上,一排一排地躺在地上。医院什么都缺,口罩、防护服、护目镜根本就不够,很多医护人员的口罩要用一个礼拜。”

布兰斯塔德大使Moving Forward TogetherLast week, President Trump and President Xi had a very good, productive phone conversation regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic.  And, over the weekend, I spoke with Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang about our countries’ joint efforts to combat COVID-19.  I underscored that now is the time to look forward, and relayed my appreciation for Chinese efforts to assist our government in the export of needed medical supplies to the United States.The U.S. Embassy has already been hard at work bringing U.S. and Chinese companies together to meet the growing immediate needs for critical personal protective equipment in the United States.  And we are working closely with Chinese government officials to facilitate the shipment of those supplies out of China.  No one country can fight this battle alone, and I am confident that our two countries will continue to find ways to jointly cooperate to combat this common enemy that threatens the lives of all of us.As the entire U.S. Mission to China continues our support and concern for our Chinese colleagues who work for Embassy Beijing and our five Consulates, we now look homeward with concern for the health and safety of our own families, friends, and loved ones back in the United States.  The work we are all doing is crucial, and I encourage everyone to continue your valiant efforts to fight this pandemic.Moving forward together, I know that we will get through these difficult times.Ambassador Branstad

特朗普在通话中说,他希望观众尽快回到体育场馆的座位上。“我希望球迷们回到场馆。我们什么时候可以,我们尽快。”
