Before the Senate, Dr. Fauci indicated that it is necessary to take forceful actions to be able to stop the spread of the virus, otherwise “it will be very disturbing.”
Regeneration, June 30, 2020. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, appeared Tuesday before the Senate Health Committee and issued a very strong warning.
Dr. Fauci indicated that if the United States fails to bring the pandemic under control, they could reach 100,000 infected per day.
“If you see what is happening and you see some of the videos where there are people congregating, often without masks, or where they are in a crowd jumping and not paying attention to the rules that we have very carefully published,” said the specialist.
This occurs amid the lifting of the quarantine in different states of the country, this by President Trump’s order to reactivate the economy.
In Texas, for example, Governor Greg Abbott allowed the reopening of shopping malls, restaurants, bars, gyms, and other businesses. In this state the numbers of infections have increased, but despite this the governor has not backed down.
For its part, New York, which was during the epicenter of the pandemic, measures have been carried out in a more staggered manner and the results have been better.
Last week Fauci indicated that the country was making bad decisions regarding the pandemic, and indicated that “We have to do something about it and we have to do it soon.”
Similarly, the doctor pointed out that although some states have managed to tame the virus, they are still vulnerable because the situation is not being addressed elsewhere.
