Back in June of 2019, Dr. Fauci had an interview with Steve Clemons, The Hill's editor at large at the time, and during the interview, the infectious disease expert was asked his biggest fear. Fauci responded by saying the following statement, "As an infectious-disease public-health person - I mean, there are a lot of other things in society that I worry about, but you don't want my opinion of that; let's talk about infectious diseases - is a respiratory-borne illness, that spreads rapidly, that's new - mainly there's no background immunity in the population. And that almost always turns out to be a brand-new pandemic influenza."

That statement, unfortunately, was more than precise, besides the influenza part. Now, Fauci has said to The Hill recently that he feels bad about how correct he was by what he said a whole year ago, and that he wants to express his apologies. Here's what Fauci said, "I'm so sorry that I was so prescient when we had our last interview, Steve. I really am very sorry about that. When we had our conversation last year, I said this is what I would be most worried about. I'm so sorry that it occurred, and occurred so quickly after that interview."

Even though Fauci wanted to express his apologies, he went on to mention the future and how the human race as a collective will learn from times such as these. "There'll be many lessons learned, we've got to for the future, make sure that we don't lose this corporate memory of what we're going through because we need, obviously, to be better prepared."

Fauci then went onto say how we can better prepare for another coronavirus-level outbreak, and one of the ways to prepare incorrectly is to frighten society by saying, 'At any given moment, something is going to come in and destroy society'. The infectious disease expert says that if those messages are spread, people will become accustomed to the fear. A more effective way of preparing for some of this caliber again is "to preemptively put in place the scientific and public-health capabilities to respond. Don't try to guess what the next outbreak is because you're almost always gonna guess wrong. Try to put a fundamental system in place of surveillance."
