With coronavirus cases around the country, increasing at a rapid rate, many people are asking if the US will have to enter another nationwide lockdown.
If you have checked any coronavirus tracker, you would be able to see that daily cases in the US have been rising exponentially, and as cases have been rising, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has said that another nationwide lockdown may not be necessary.
In an interview with ABC's Good Morning America, Dr. Fauci said that "we would like to stay away from [a nationwide lockdown] because there is no appetite for locking down on the American public." Instead of another lockdown, Dr. Fauci proposes that nationwide we "intensify public health measures", and make sure people are sticking to the basic recommendations. Those public health measures include mask use, social distancing, proper hygiene, and avoiding large crowds in doors.
"So if you can do that well, you don't have to take that step that people are trying to avoid, which has so many implications both psychologically and economically. We'd like not to do that," said Dr. Fauci.
