Xinhua interviewed Dr. Zuo-Feng Zhang, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health distinguished professor of epidemiology and associate dean for research, about the likelihood of a surge in the U.S. in coming months, including from students returning to school.
Leading experts warned that COVID-19 cases may surge in fall and winter in the United States as the pandemic has caused over 200,000 deaths as of Tuesday.
Months into the pandemic, the United States has currently recorded more than 6.88 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 200,500 deaths, according to the real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.
Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and other data issues.
