US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin revealed that his country will not stop economic activity again in the event of a new wave of infection with the Corona virus.

In a related context, Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday: "We learned that when the economy is stopped, more damage occurs - not just economic damage."

In this regard, the minister added that during the last period, more successes were achieved in hospitals and in conducting medical examinations.

"This was something that was the biggest problem and the biggest reason why the president had to shut down the economy on the basis of it," the minister said.

Most of the US states imposed severe restrictions on the movement of their citizens due to the rapid spread of the pandemic, which led to the stoppage of public life in many sectors, and the economy entered into a severe crisis, as unemployment rates increased significantly.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the number of infections within the United States has reached more than two million.
