Dr. Anthony Fauci warned at a Senate Health Committee hearing that the U.S. could be at risk of an outbreak if it handled the reopening of states carefully,media reported. In fact, every state in the United States is now in the right to reopen, including New York, where the outbreak is extremely severe.
As a result, the discussion of reopening the topic has entered the channels – including sports channels- Last weekend, NBC Sports’ Peter King spoke with Fauci about the NFL and whether he believes the season will go ahead as planned.
When Dr. Fauci talks about the new corona virus, he gives the audience a wake-up call:
“The spread of SARS-CoV-2 is so contagious and so widespread around the world that even if our infection is well controlled and significantly declined in the summer, it is almost impossible to eradicate it. This means that infections can also occur in places like the southern hemisphere, South Africa, Argentina, and so on. With domestic travel, global travel, thousands of people coming to the United States every day from all over the world, we can’t be virus-free. “
The new coronavirus will not disappear in the short term. At the same time, the most important thing for the United States is to continue to expand the scale of testing, to establish a system to track contacts in people who test positive and to isolate infected people before they have a chance to infect others.
Dr Fauci continued: “Even though the virus is now dropping dramatically in June, July and August, it would be a shame if we didn’t have all the mechanisms to prevent the virus from erupting again as it began to return in the fall. In other words, you need to deploy enough tests for everyone who needs to test to get tested. Doing enough testing allows you to immediately track and isolate contacts when someone is infected, preventing the infection from developing into several infections or hundreds of infections. This is how to control disease outbreaks. “
