Fauci Warns US Could Soon See 100K New Cases Daily

Forbes reports:

In a Tuesday hearing with the Senate Help Committee on the state of the coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he is “very concerned” about rise in coronavirus cases across the U.S. as the nation sees 40,000 new cases per day.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. “We’re going in the wrong direction.” Fauci said he would “not be surprised” if new cases rise from current levels to 100,000 per day if the country fails to contain the disease’s spread.

He pointed to large gatherings of people without masks as particular points of concern in his Congressional testimony, saying that congregating at indoor bars is “bad news.”
