U.S. has too much spread to contain the outbreak, CDC official says

 5:02 p.m. ET — The U.S. is reporting too many new infections every day for the country to wrestle its outbreak under control, according to Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
 

While many other countries in Europe and Asia have managed to bring their levels of daily infection down to a point at which health officials can corner off and contain pockets of the virus, Schuchat said the U.S. is not at that point.

“We’re not in the situation of New Zealand or Singapore or Korea where a new case is rapidly identified and all the contacts are traced and people are isolated who are sick and people who are exposed are quarantined and they can keep things under control,” she said in an interview with The Journal of the American Medical Association’s Dr. Howard Bauchner. “We have way too much virus across the country for that right now, so it’s very discouraging.” —Will Feuer
