US Vice President Mike Pence noted that while current trends continue, the crisis around the coronavirus could “stay-behind” by early June. About it informs “Voice of America”.
Some states will begin to resume economic activity in the coming days: Oklahoma, Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Texas will remove a number of restrictions introduced to curb the spread of the virus.
Other states, including North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Montana, and Wyoming, have not issued prescriptions to stay home.
“I really believe that if current trends continue, by the beginning of June the coronavirus pandemic will largely be left behind and our country will begin to open up and return to work,” Pence said in an interview with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Pence, who leads the White House’s working group on the fight against coronavirus, noted that “he won’t be surprised,” if it turns out that many people in the country have already had the virus and are now immune.
“It is highly likely that if you have already had coronavirus, you will have some immunity in the future,” he said. “This is one of the reasons that if there is a new surge of coronavirus in the future, our country will be in a better position.”
“If the results of the first studies are confirmed, by the fall and winter of next year there will be a lot of Americans with some degree of immunity to coronavirus. This will become a real bastion against the disease, ”he added.
In the same vein, Pence spoke out on Wednesday in an interview with the Wall Street Journal podcast when he welcomed the development of new therapeutic methods and assured: “Americans will have a good summer.”
“The trends are still encouraging, and we are truly convinced that by continuing to responsibly resume economic activity in one state after another, by the beginning of June we may be in a situation where the coronavirus pandemic will largely remain in the past and our country will be able to move forward “Said Pence.
According to Johns Hopkins University, 47,000 people died from coronavirus by Thursday in the United States.
