4 sobering takeaways from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Senate testimony
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified today before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, voicing his concerns about what could happen if the United States doesn’t step up its COVID-19 response. Here are the biggest takeaways:
Fauci pointed out that the country is already seeing 40,000 new cases per day, and he doesn’t see that caseload going down if outbreaks in different parts of the U.S. continue to increase. As for a vaccine, Fauci says that a safe and effective vaccine is not guaranteed, but experts are hopeful that doses will be available to the public by next year.
