The virus does not stop on war climates, and it is spreading unstoppably in Arizona and Florida. Zoltán Vajó is a diabetologist but has been working in the COVID department since the outbreak of the virus in the region. Meanwhile, it seems that the resources of the local healthcare system are depleting and the end of the danger is not yet seeable.
Zoltán Vajó told index.hu that, in short, they will have to decide who receives a breathing machine and who does not. Mr Vajó is an internist who worked in the Human Genome Project before during which he discovered a gene. He also researched the flu vaccines, and in his free time, he is the trainer of a youth hockey team. He said that
in April nobody knew how severe the problem would become in just weeks.
After the strict measures implemented, the epidemic peaked, but shortly after that, the Trump administration reopened everything to reduce the economic damage. Epidemiologists despaired, but Trump and his government maintained its standpoint in the issue. As a result, the number of new cases skyrocketed in just weeks.

He said that currently all hospitals are full and the situation is starting to be out of control in Florida and Arizona. All healthcare institutions struggle with the lack of doctors and nurses even though
they send home everybody whose life is not directly in danger.
Furthermore, everybody who can move works on the COVID departments. However, they are not able to treat all patients. At least 787 American doctors and nurses died because they treated COVID patients.
Mr Vajó said that they did not run out of the breathing machines yet, but they are very close to reaching that limit. Now they try to use those respirators in intensive care which are not as modern as the average. He said that if they have to select the patients who receive a machine
those would get to one who is younger and otherwise healthy.
Meanwhile, he says that people are becoming more and more undisciplined. Restaurants, shops can remain open but some closed because of the situation and nobody knows when the danger will end.
He said that even though he treats patients regularly with remdesivir, it is not a medicine because it can only shorten the recovery time. He added that only the vaccine would be able to bring the epidemic to an end and, until then, the safety people got used before the epidemic would not return.
