Dr. Fauci Says the Coronavirus Is ‘Not Going to Disappear’

Dr. Anthony Fauci is offering a different perspective on the idea of a second wave of the coronavirus hitting the United States later this year.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAIS) director appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday where he was, again, asked about the possibility of a second wave of the coronavirus.

Fauci previously noted the possibilities of a resurgence and the preventative measures that could be taken to decrease the spread during the winter months, as previously reported on IJR.

However, this time, he offered a different perception suggesting the next season may not be a second wave because it many never go away.

“So, it’s not gonna disappear from the planet which means as we get into next season, in my mind, it’s inevitable that we will have a return of the virus — or maybe that it never even went away,” Fauci said. “When it does, how we handle it will determine our fate.”

See Fauci’s remarks below:

Over the last several weeks, there have been many discussions about the possibility of a resurgence later this year. CDC Director Robert Redfield, Dr. Fauci, and Dr. Deborah Birx have all been questioned about what to expect in the coming months.

The global health experts have stressed the importance of maintaining the social distancing guidelines to diminish the spread as medical institutions work to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Gilead Sciences Inc. reported new developments with an experimental anti-viral drug, Remdesivir.

The company revealed a study on the drug being conducted by the (NIAIS) has “its main goal in helping patients with COVID-19,” as previously reported on IJR.

Fauci also shared positive remarks about the drug, saying the trial results have offered “quite good news.” However, clinical trials are still being conducted.

Responses

  1. The Japanese island of Hokkaido is an example of why an area should not re-open too early (presumably two consecutive weeks of decrease). They had to resequester for a second time.

    The 1918 pandemic had a second wave. So did the 1956-7 pandemic. Why bet your health against the odds?

  2. ““So, it’s not gonna disappear from the planet which means as we get into next season, in my mind, it’s inevitable that we will have a return of the virus — or maybe that it never even went away,”
    Dr. Fauci’s bend the curve advice was never intended to eliminate the virus,only to slow it down and one doesn’t have to have advanced degrees to know that viruses never go away they mutate into new versions ie. the annual flu virus. Dr Fauci as head of the NIH approved $3.7 million dollars to the Wahun lab in China to bypass a ban on such deadly work in the USA. He is hardly a prophet or savior as painted by the media.
    or savior,

  3. it amazes me how many liberals are actually so stupid they think if they hide it will just go away

  4. Dr. Fauci does not know about DJ Trump’s mystical powers. If you build a wall on the border, it magically improves security at the legal points of entry which is where 99% of the smuggling of drugs and persons enter. DJ Trump is taking money from the Defense appropriations, but it is really Mexico paying for the wall. DJ Trump’s magical powers are world famous.

    1. except the whole, that was proven false too many times to count. a large portion of what they cause was. 2000 miles of open border is a little harder to patrol 24/7

      1. If the border is open, WHY is so much of the “Trump wall” REPLACEMENT fencing? If you watched the “El Chapo” trial, members of the cartel told the jury and the American public EXACTLY how they smuggled drugs into America and not one testified to carrying them across the desert and across the border. They testified to submarines, ships, paneled trucks, helicopters and private planes. HOW does your “wall” stop ANY of those methods. WHY are Trumpers so opposed to 21st century technology? Is it because you don’t care about effectiveness, ONLY the symbol you perceive it represent? Like flag pins?
