Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is speaking live now during a US Chamber of Commerce virtual event, said the United States needs to concentrate on what’s happening right now with coronavirus cases.
“People keep talking about the possibility of a second wave in the fall — that’s a historic terminology related to another time and another outbreak. I think we need to concentrate on where we are right now,” the nation’s leading expert on infectious diseases said.
Fauci said the US is “essentially still in the first wave.”
“When you’re having up to 70,000 new infections in certain areas of the country, that’s something you need to focus on right now, as opposed to looking at what’s going to happen in September or October,” he said.
