The US passed a terrible milestone Sunday with 80,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in one day, exceeding the total number of cases in all of China, as Chinese experts predict the peak has yet to be reached.

According to the data by the Coronavirus Resource Center of Johns Hopkins University, a further 84,033 cases were confirmed in the US from Saturday 05:33 pm to Sunday 06:34 pm, which exceeded the accumulated confirmed cases reported in China so far.

Liang Manchun, an associate research fellow at the Institute for Public Safety Research of Tsinghua University, said that he had not expected the number of daily cases to reach 80,000 until the end of July.

US 03The rapid increase in new cases was mainly due to the failure of anti-pandemic work and the early reopening of establishments and widespread protests, Liang noted.

The number of new cases could hit 90,000 a day in a week or two, Liang said.

If the US government took epidemic prevention and control seriously and the public were to pay attention to self-protection, the country could flatten the curve of infection within three to four months, Liang said.

Despite the startling increase in the coronavirus cases, the Trump administration is trying to block billions of dollars for states to conduct testing and contact tracing in the upcoming coronavirus relief bill.

Liang believes it could take the US more than a year to contain the coronavirus, but the situation may change if a vaccine is developed, or there’s a leadership change in Washington or nationwide protests continue to abate.
