Oct 9, 2020

Forbes – The nation’s top infectious diseases official, Dr. Anthony Fauci, suggested at a virtual UC Berkeley event on Thursday that life may start going back to normal around fall 2021—but that hinges on getting a vaccine and adhering to social distancing measures, while he added that masks would likely still be necessary.

Fauci stressed five public health measures that are key to “preventing the surges we’re seeing”, including wearing masks, social distancing, avoiding large crowds, washing hands often and opting for outdoor activity over indoor.

Fauci also called for testing and rapid results as a way to narrow the racial gap which has seen ethnic minority communities disproportionately affected.

Fauci, who has often come up against personal threats from online conspiracy theorists and opposition to his public health warnings, said that the “enemy is the virus” and that science “knows no political party”.

Facui last month gave a similar 2021 timeline for when he expected life to return to some normality, depending on the timeline for a vaccine.

When asked about the effect of conspiracy theories on public health efforts to combat the spread of the virus, Fauci said:

“The examples of people not wanting to wear masks, or not believing that if you just go in a crowd you’re not going to get infected or if you do get infected it’s going to be meaningless because it’s a trivial outbreak. Well, how could it be a trivial outbreak if it’s already killed 210,000 people in the United States and a million people worldwide?”

Efforts to fight the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. have been plagued with partisan disagreements, while the Trump administration has been widely criticized … Read more

Judy Woodruff: COVID cases are continuing to spike around many parts of the country, and that includes right here in Washington, D.C., where the president’s own case and many others in his inner circle and around the White House have been a source of serious concern this past week.

Dr. Anthony Fauci joins me now. He’s the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH.

Dr. Fauci, thank you so much for joining us again.

Given what you have observed, when do you think President Trump will be out of the woods?

Anthony Fauci: Well, right now, he looks good, and, according to his report, he feels good.

It is entirely conceivable that he is already well on his way to being out of the woods. The one thing that his physicians are well aware of and anyone who takes care of COVID-19 patients are aware of is that this is a strange type of a virus, because you can feel good for a few days in a row, and then you could have a really unexpected downturn, where your condition worsens.

I hope that doesn’t happen. It’s unlikely it will, but it has happened in the past to people, which is the reason why his physicians are aware of that and are making sure they’re monitoring it. Even though he’s out, in a sense, in the White House doing things and working, he still needs to be careful that he doesn’t relapse.

So, we’re hoping he doesn’t. I don’t think he will, but it’s conceivable that he might.

Judy Woodruff: Do you know when his last COVID negative test was? And is that relevant?

Anthony Fauci: You know, I do not know, Judy. I’m not privy to that information, to be honest with you. I just don’t know when his last negative test was … Read more.
