Fauci: US Preparing For Quick Distribution Of Vaccine Once It Is Approved

Dr. Anthony Fauci issues strong warnings to 4 states experiencing 'slight increase' in percentage of positive tests Dr. Anthony Fauci issues strong warnings to 4 states experiencing 'slight increase' in percentage of positive tests

America saw a surge in coronavirus cases in the summer while Europe saw a drop off because the United States adhered far less to the early lockdowns, the top U.S. infectious diseases expert has said.

"So, I know we've heard a lot about disagreements", Scalise said, "and clearly there are many decisions made".

According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director, states who put these principles into action have seen their curves flatten and cases go down. Here are those five fundamental principles you should follow to help avoid another lockdown.

Dr. Anthony Fauci warned the governors of four USA states that they need to get new infections under control. Once that happens, though, he doesn't think "everybody will be able to get it all at once".

But rapid, widespread testing is critical to containing the pandemic. Jordan compared such a move to closing houses of worship and businesses during shutdowns and suggested Fauci unequally judged certain activities over others as worthy of government intervention. And the resurgence of COVID-19 in the Sunbelt in recent weeks has driven the number of new daily cases back up into the 60,000-70,000 range.

"I'm not favouring anybody over anybody", Fauci replied.

Trump has for months touted the benefits of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for people infected with coronavirus, despite the fact that early on, no clinical trials had been completed proving the drug safe and effective.

Fauci's testimony at a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis came at the end of a month in which U.S. coronavirus deaths rose by nearly 25,000 and cases doubled in at least 18 states, according to a Reuters tally, dealing a crushing blow to hopes of quickly reopening the economy.

Fauci, who made headlines in March by describing US testing efforts as a failing, repeatedly handed off questions about the current state of testing from Democrats critical of Trump to get him to characterize the current situation to witnesses more directly involved with that effort.

"Should we limit the protesting?"

"Now Dr. Fauci", the chairman intoned, "do you agree with the president's statement, or do you stand by your previous answer that the difference is caused by multiple factors including the fact that some states did not do a good job of reopening?" And I don't judge one crowd versus another crowd.

During the hearing Clyburn had displayed a chart showing rising cases in the USA juxtaposed with lower levels across Europe. "We started off with a very hard baseline of transmission that was going on at the time that we tried to open up the country, what we saw particularly most recently in the southern states was an increase of cases to 20, 30, 40, 50 thousand, and a couple of weeks ago it was up to 70,000 per day and now it's down between 50 and 60, and the reasons for that are complex".
