“We’ve got to keep that slope coming down,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Tuesday.
When it comes to Covid-19 cases in the US, the baseline is just too high as we head into the fall and winter, Fauci said during the CITIZEN by CNN Conference – and we’ve got to start working on that now.
To lower the levels, “You do that by looking at where you are, in what region of the country, and acting accordingly, according to the guidelines,” Fauci said. “That’s not rocket science.”
Fauci said, “We’ve got to do it together. We’ve got to be in this together.”
“When you have weak links in the chain, and some components of society are not doing it, it just makes it very difficult for the rest,” Fauci said.
