"On the 17th local time, US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said in an interview with US media that the main reason why the number of people with new coronary pneumonia in the United States is so high is the health of Americans. , Especially minority communities. This view was refuted by the US media.
According to CNN, Hazard made relevant remarks while accepting CNN's "State of the Union" program, which was hosted by Jack Tarper. At the beginning of the show, Tarper pointed out that the number of deaths from the new crown pneumonia in the United States has approached 90,000.
