USA could see 100,000 new coronavirus per day, Anthony Fauci warns Congress

Dr Anthony Fauci director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases testifies during a Senate Health Education Labor

In sworn testimony before a Senate committee, Fauci addressed the lack of compliance in parts of the country.

Fauci expressed dismay over people congregating in crowds and not wearing masks and inadequate attention being paid to guidelines on reopening.

He added: "We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. And so I am very concerned".

Dr. Anthony Fauci warned a Senate committee on Tuesday that states are "skipping over" coronavirus reopening guidelines - and that numerous new infections from young people could be potentially deadly to others.

Fauci testified alongside Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield; Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn; and Brett Giroir, assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, before the Senate's health committee hearing meant to focus on safely reopening schools and businesses. AdvertisementFauci warned weeks earlier that the "consequences could be really serious" if states rushed their reopening initiatives without having the testing and contact tracing in place to isolate the virus.

The nation's top infectious-disease expert gave the warning in response to questioning from Sen. Fauci was responding to a question from Elizabeth Warren, who pressed him on what the final death toll might be. That would be wonderful if we get there. US fatalities account for more than one-fifth of that total, which includes roughly 125,747 deaths as of Sunday. "I'm very concerned, and I'm not satisfied with what's going on because we're going in the wrong direction, if you look at the curves of the new cases".

Redfield singled out younger Americans in particular to deliver a message that they are not exempt from the necessity of wearing a mask.

He later implored Fauci for a change in tone: "We need more optimism".

Some health experts have expressed worry that FDA will rush to approve a vaccine before enough is known about safety or efficacy but the agency sought to allay those fears with the guidance. "And if we are going to contain this, we've got to contain it together". 'I can say this is under critical review right now by us at CDC.

Earlier today: The World Health Organization confirmed in an email to CNN on Tuesday that agency officials are carefully reading the new data that has emerged on the swine flu virus.

A leading Republican senator says President Donald Trump should start wearing a mask at least some of the time because politics is getting in the way of protecting the American people from COVID-19.
