Dr. Anthony Fauci warned on Tuesday that the U.S. could see 100,000 new coronavirus cases a day. In separate testimony, Jerome Powell , the Federal Reserve chairman, cautioned that “a full recovery is unlikely” until safety is restored.
The government’s top infectious disease expert told a Senate panel that bars needed to be closed, and the Fed chairman cautioned that “a full recovery is unlikely” until safety is restored.
— a number that health officials fear may not be enough to achieve “herd immunity,” a term that signifies that a vast majority of a population has protection against infection.At least 70 percent will need to be immune to the virus to reach that point, according to
researchers at Johns Hopkins University.Officials are particularly concerned that African-Americans and others who have been hit hard by the pandemic may be hesitant about vaccinations because of longstanding suspicions of government programs like the Tuskegee experiment, in which poor Black men suffering from syphilis were left untreated and monitored.
“It is a reality: a lack of trust of authority, a lack of trust in government and a concern about vaccines in general,” Dr. Fauci said. He added that there needed to be “boots on the ground,” especially near minority communities that “have not always been treated fairly by the government.”
The official topic of Tuesday’s hearing was how to get children safely back to school, but there seemed to be no agreement on that, and no universal plan to do so. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come outstrongly in favorof bringing children back to the classroom in the fall, saying in a statement that “schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being.”
Dr. Fauci agreed, but said each school district must make decisions based on the course of the pandemic in its area.ImageSenator Maggie Hassan, Democrat of New Hampshire, with a chart showing coronavirus cases in the United States compared with other countries.

The Republican chairman of the Health Committee, Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, prefaced his opening statement with an appeal to the president to set a better example by occasionally covering his face.
Mr. Alexander lamented that masks had “become part of the political debate,” with people’s decision about whether to wear one dependent on their views of Mr. Trump.“The president has plenty of admirers,” Mr. Alexander said. “They would follow his lead; it would help end this political debate. The stakes are too high for this political debate about pro-Trump, anti-Trump to continue.”
In his testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee last week, Dr. Fauci warned that the next two weeks would be critical to controlling the virus’s spread, and said it was not yet under control in the United States. On Tuesday he sounded even more downbeat, provoking a backlash from one Republican, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who delivered a five-minute sermon denouncing “central planners” and health experts who opine on matters like sports.
“Dr. Fauci, every day, virtually every day, we seem to hear from you things we can’t do,” Mr. Paul, an ophthalmologist, said, adding: “All I hear is, we can’t do this. We can’t do that. We can’t play baseball.”Dr. Fauci agreed that he was “completely unqualified to tell you whether you can play a sport or not,” but added that he was only trying, “to the best of my ability,” to disseminate facts and evidence about the outbreak.
The senator sounded exasperated. “We just need more optimism,” he said.But Dr. Fauci stood firm. “We cannot forget,” he told senators at the end of the session, “that what was thought to be unimaginable turned out to be the reality that we’re facing right now.”

THIS IS N🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤫🤫🤫🤫 Fauci hired Surgisphere to write a fake study on HCQ in an effort to stop clinical trials. The LANCET retracted fraudulently study🤬 Wearing a mask is going to protect anyone from this virus! Nope! We're being taken for a ride! Here ya go! Let's start giving these out! Yeaaaaaah!
He’s been using these scare tactics for months. Why doesn’t he just admit he doesn’t have a clue? But I guess none of the new cases has anything to do with the protests in June, right? But the “V shaped” recovery! A virus that’s not even listen in the top 20 causes of death with a 99% survival rate... That’s NOT a pandemic idiots!
Fauci is an idiot! That’s the whole US population in a month. Scamdemic Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany : Trump, 'the most tested man in America'. Thanks to him, soon the most detested ? Maybe fauci should shut down the violent protests. Those tend to spread COVID. Just what we need...a wishy washy bureaucratic doctor in charge of this debacle. waffler
Jesuit agent of your Pope. And is anyone listening? If everyone would social distance, wear a mask, and be selfless (😱) for a few weeks, maybe we can make progress like other countries. Small price to pay for greater freedom! The first sentence of this story is, 'For a brief moment, California returned to bars, beaches and Botox.'
The US is under international lockdown. No one wants Americans in their countries! The States lead the world by far with 2.7 million COVID-19 cases and over 130,000 Covid deaths. That’s 1/4 of the total COVID 19 deaths in the world! Winning!! I believe in Dr. Judy Mikovits, Fauci is a mercenary of the pharmaceutical establishment, his institutions gave money to Whuan's laboratory where the virus came from. I don't know how it still has a voice in the USA.
Fauci, the scientist & viral expert, has made seriously wrong predictions and given terrible wrong advise over and over again from the very 1st day. America should NO LONGER lean heavily Fauci's advise...question every thing he says or predicts. Fauci is UNRELIABLE! Did you also catch him when he took off his damn mask? No... of course not. When the light went out and the cameras shut down his mask magically came off too. Fauci flip flop!
🤯🤯🤯🤯 And yet Powell will keep dumping trillions to prop up Trump's last remaining lifeline: The Dow. POTUS realDonaldTrump senatemajldr McConnellPress . Are these people the idiots , and “ wait and see” approach working “ Grim reaper”? Because if unemployment not extended it will be on both of your hands. Blood, homelessness, drug addiction rises, suicide, starvation.
100,000 casos diarios y será solo el comienzo y latinoamérica sufrirá igual. We must know that in certain instances, we have done enough. lrozen So what’s with this bs smoke and mirrors stock market? Who and how is it being propped up? Serious question. mr_jettlife Eat 💩 listen to all of this video! lrozen The Trump Family.
Until November 3rd? Right? Today U. S. seen 46, 000+ cases and it really could have 100, 000 by the end of august. So please stay safe guys. Your health is your first priority. Very facemasks in your going outside. Please avoid going outside if possible. Your life is important than going outside. This is a NATIONAL CRISIS and our leader is playing $! golf.
This guy is wrong so much I’m worried that many more coronavirus deaths will be needed in order for Americans to start taking this thing seriously. So many people basically forcefully preserving their own ignorance, and proudly so... only a good old fashioned ass-kicking can fix that kind of stupid. He already told us there would be 2 million deaths.
One way to purge the shit from the earth! Keep protesting! Hmmm until safety is restored = martial law but you don’t hear me. Bye bye HumanRights I guess Fauci recommending no masks initially and telling young people to keep hooking up on dating sites was ...oh let me think, a little unprofessional. Wear a mask, please!
He’s incompetent - as a conservative i must say that this is fake and has to be fake or else my awful beliefs would be bad Does anyone else find it odd that no one in political power have died from the virus! I find that weird. That would be one way to have term limits. No worries. Everything will be fully recovered and restored on Nov 4.
stop the fear mongering Thank's for protesting (Rioting) 2% death rate 💀 this is not looking good I wear a red nose instead a mask as it’s more efficient thands for your diligent reporting. Wear a mask! Be respectful, be responsible! Would you rather be hooked up to a ventilator or wear a mask. Since our government is too weak to mandate we all wear one. Let’s do it to save each others lives. WearADamnMask

Fauci Warns Coronavirus Cases Could Reach 100,000 a Day, as Surge Delays ReopeningsAnthony Fauci said the U.S. is now recording about 40,000 new cases a day of the new coronavirus, and that “it could go up to 100,000 a day” if people continue to flout advice on social distancing and face masks. The Trump doctrine. 100,000 a day. All of this because realDonaldTrump was too vain to cover the orange goo on his fat face. So silly! New case mean nothing. We shut the country down to flatten the curve and not overwhelm the hospitals. All have been accomplished. Mortality rates and ICU bed % is key.

I wish he wouldn’t make these types of extreme comments that gives the science deniers something to twist into a talking point. The reason why Trump doesn’t care is because he modeled 2M will die and anything less than that makes trump think we are winning. Know your audience!
