Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, predicts up to 100,000 positive cases a day in the U.S. Senate if the most affected states do not take strong action
Perhaps because he doesn’t put political gain before technical considerations and prefers to explain reality rather than to fire slogans, Fauci went to the Upper House to explain his vision of the pandemic. And it’s not good not nice. In fact, he believes that if the current trend continues, with several states in record numbers, including Texas, California and Florida, the country will have a few months of real nightmare ahead of it.
It should be borne in mind that the US is registering 40,000 positives a day. And no, neither he nor any other scientist supports that this is because more tests are being done than ever before. In fact, one of the hardest hit states, Arizona, is suffering from a brutal testing cap. And no, he understands that one should not have too many illusions about the good progress of territories such as New York or New Jersey, which have been seeing light at the end of the too long and too dark tunnel for days.
