3 hr 7 min ago"Entirely conceivable" that more than 1 million people in the US could contract coronavirus, Fauci saysFrom CNN’s Allie MalloyJim Watson/AFP/Getty ImagesDr. Anthony Fauci told reporters in the Rose Garden Sunday that it’s"entirely conceivable" that more than 1 million people in the US could contract coronavirus, but added that mitigation and extending guidelines through April will hopefully curb those numbers.
"The number I gave out is, you know, based on modeling," Fauci said, explaining the models he discussed on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning.Fauci said it was possible up to 100,000 could die from the virus."What we’re trying to do is not to let that happen," he said.
Fauci, the director of theNational Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the decision to extend the mitigation process until the end of April a"wise and prudent decision."He added that he and Dr. Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, discussed the plans and that the President accepted their recommendation.Read more: CNN »
Whoever skipped their classes on exponential functions is now getting a crash course. With examples on 'where am I ever going to use this' And most of them will recover. Why aren’t we hearing THAT number? He also said the media is scaring people by S’only showing worst case scenario is he was answering about what could be but he’s not talking about this is going to happen
jaketapper Listen People, this is a 'walking dead' scenario-Everyone will get it and we may as well face it, we need to test EVERYONE in the USA....immediately He also said this was unlikely and they would use this as a headline. He was correct Not true. CNN once again “cherrypicked” the small part of Dr. Fauci’s statement that fits their policy of spreading false narratives.
jaketapper If only 1 million get the virus out of a total population of 330 million that seems like good odds. Wow, that is nothing compared to the Swine Flu. 60 million (20% of the country). Obama/Biden!!! Around 200,000 Americans are hospitalized each year because of the flu, with the mortality rate between 4.2% and 10% of those hospitalized, based on the Center for Disease Control numbers.
Far cry from 40-60% of the population.... but you WONT report that, would you LameStreamMedia One million out of 365 million people I believe it. If we don’t take social distancing seriously , it will happen. So, please stay home. Enjoy your time with your family. Your children need it. jaketapper Dr. Fauci for sainthood - heroically standing up for Americans, while the TRUMPVIRUS rages.
Conceivable? Inevitable. USA will hit 1M cases in 8 days at current rates. Doubling every 3 days. Yeah cause ppl keep traveling No one should be traveling for two weeks all airport should be shutdown Travelers need to be charged with terrorism if they continue traveling state to state So after we're done with this one, can we shut down the entire world again to cure cancer and heart disease? Exponentially more people die from those ailments... Or are we supposed to keep pretending that this tiny virus is the only thing that kills people?
Why don’t you focus on the positive & help the American people by reporting the TRUTH!! CNN and fear mongering jaketapper Bullshit quote.... said there is no way of knowing and it was all a guess... CNN is such a biased fear mongering joke. NancyAFrench Those infected with TDS drink the lame stream media koolaide
And out of those 1 million how many need to be hospitalized, how many will be critical, how many fatalities are predicted? We should all be grateful that there is a man behind Trump who has both the courage to speak out the truth and the tact not to piss off the Don It’s easy to say it’s entirely conceivable. Take care. You can eradicate covid-19 soon.
jaketapper Just kidding. It's 'entirely conceivable'. Well on the way. Another way to say this, .003% of the country. jaketapper Isn’t it this when Trump predicted it will “fall to zero”? jaketapper There are 350,000,000 people in America’s. Thats .003 percent. And likely less than the number of abortions performed
jaketapper That’s 0.3% of the population. 99.7% won’t get it. I’ll take those odds. Like 10million. At 1% death rate 100,000 dead would mean 10million infected 200,000 dead, with let's say a 1% death rate, is 20 million infected. 10 million infected if using a 2% death rate. It could potentially kill millions if there is high infection rates among the elderly and people don't stay home like they need to perhaps for 18 months to 2 years.
jaketapper Well, if Trump is projecting that 100,000 could die, that's works out to 20,000,000 or so cases. (2% fatality rate) jaketapper One million in 327 million? I believe that. Some democratic hoax! Maga will be surprised. When Biden wins November 3rd. Biden2020 will get us back to being truly great. Americans have had enough.
jaketapper With all due respect to dr. Fauci. A determination cannot be done without accurate data. Accurate data would be every single person tested like the WHO test that trump refused. You cannot say that the virus is receding without knowing everybody who has it in the first place. jaketapper but but, it was supposed to be only fifteen and their infections would miraculously go down to zero. Where did the president get these stats? How could he have been so off? So confusing.
That number seems incredibly low. Seems almost impossible to have fewer than 1 million. Killing 100,000 Americans, to own the libs! How does he get these numbers? The models? I wouldlive to hear his reason since the death rate in America is sub 1% Irresponsible Comments …. Yes, it is more than likely, we all eventually will come into contact with it. There were at least 60,000,000 swine flu cases at one point. The best hope is to slow the rate of transmission so the hospitals can manage the most serious cases.
CNN the China Fake News Network again trying to stir up panic & fear..... Where is the story about the FDA issuing an emergency use authorization for hydroxycholorquine that will save lives 1/327th of the US population. Yea sure

Watch as they continue to revise down until they get to 10k to 20k, the real number. add a least one zero to the end of the number of deceased, with layoffs over 100 million Americans now have no health insurance at all, they will wait to seek medical attention until they are near death and by then it will be too late uh huh sure it will be that much
