On Thursday, 13th October, it was confirmed in America that there had been a severe first reinfection case.
As this has happened;
- What is going to happen now?
- Will there be another national lockdown for the United States?
- If there is another lockdown, will it affect election results?
If you have asked yourself or friends and family these questions, I aim to answer them in this post.
As of the 13th October, there were only 5 reinfection cases recorded worldwide. This is the first reinfection case for America and should be a bit of a worry to President Trump. Personally, I think that if he acts quickly enough, he can prevent any more reinfections, and possibly prevent any more deaths from COVID-19. This is doable, but Trump must be committed to it.
As this has happened, the public may start to worry about another national lockdown for America, and panic. This is not necessary, and can be prevented if the President acts quickly enough.
I do not think that another lockdown is needed, but if possible, stricter rules should be put in place for COVID "hotspots". If another national lockdown is enforced in the USA, people will have to be stricter on themselves, and others, as this virus is as you know, extremely dangerous.
If another lockdown is put in place, I do not think that it will affect election results, as people will still be able to see campaigns, and promises that the candidates have made, but also people may dislike Donald Trump for enforcing another lockdown, or they may think he has done the right thing. But if a national lockdown is put in place, the method of voting will probably have to change. See my other post here, for more details.
I hope this has answered any questions you may have had about the new reinfection case, and what is happening now.
