‘The virus is not behind us’: U.S. Chamber of Commerce calls for global action even as U.S. recovers

Life may be returning to some form of normality in the United States — but “the danger is in front of us” if the world does not band together to fight the pandemic in other places like India, said Myron Brilliant of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the U.S. last week said fully vaccinated people will no longer need to wear face masks in many settings, both indoors and outdoors.

Some retailers and restaurants have adopted this guidance, easing mask mandates for customers who are fully vaccinated.

But we have to be alarmed by what we see in India and the potential for other waves. We’re concerned about Southeast Asia, South Asia.

“We’ve seen progress here in the United States, we’re getting the pandemic under control, we’re seeing economic recovery in critical sectors, including manufacturing,” said Brilliant, the Chamber’s executive vice president and head of international affairs.

“But we have to be alarmed by what we see in India and the potential for other waves. We’re concerned about Southeast Asia, South Asia,” he told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia” on Tuesday.
