Top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has given the American public a warning for what is about to come.
Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and has been a voice of reason throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Recently, Fauci took to ABC to give the American public a heated warning for what is about to happen to the coronavirus if new daily cases aren't reduced.
The infectious disease experts began to describe a somewhat nightmare scenario for the US and said that if daily cases aren't reduced, we are going to have "a very difficult time". The nightmare scenario is the convergence of both the flu and the coronavirus in the fall, and as described by the director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, it could create "one of the most difficult times that we've experienced in American public health."
Fauci echo's this warning by saying that while it's very unlikely that the US will be able to reduce its daily coronavirus cases from where it's sitting now 50,000 - 70,000 to below 10,000, it's not impossible.
"I want to impress upon the American people in a way that's so clear: There are things that we can do that would get the level down. If we go into the fall and the winter, David, with the same situation... we will have upticks of percent positive, and then you have the inevitable surging of infection.
The way human nature is acting out there, it doesn't seem likely [this goal will be met]. But that doesn't mean it can't be done. I don't know how more forcefully I can make that plea to the American people. That we can open the country, we can get back to normality, if we do some simple things." said Fauci.
