Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, had a straightforward message Wednesday night about how long the novel coronavirus could affect daily life in the US: 'You don't make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline.'Washington (CNN)Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, had a straightforward message Wednesday night about how long the novel coronavirus could affect daily life in the US:"You don't make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline." "You've got to be realistic," Fauci told CNN's Chris Cuomo on"Prime Time." "And you've got to understand that you don't make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline. So you've got to respond, in what you see happen. And if you keep seeing this acceleration, it doesn't matter what you say. One week, two weeks, three weeks -- you've got to go with what the situation on the ground is."His comments appear at odds with President Donald Trump's growing desire to ease the public health guidelines that have shuttered businesses and kept workers at home as the virus has spread. The President has even said he wants the nation"opened up and just raring to go by Easter" -- a date just weeks away that few health experts believe will be sufficient in containing the outbreak."You may see in a relatively shorter period of time, when you're seeing the inkling of the flattening and coming down," Fauci said in reference to slowing the speed of the outbreak."But you know, you can't make an arbitrary decision until you see what you're dealing with. You need the data."Read MoreFauci, a veteran doctor, also hasn't been afraid to refute Trump to the President's face. The dynamic was on full display when Trump was asked earlier this month about a timeline for a vaccine during a White House meeting opened up to reporters."I don't know what the time will be. I've heard very quick numbers, that of months. And I've heard pretty much a year would be an outside number. So I think that's not a bad range. But if you're talking about three to four months in a couple of cases, a year in other cases," Trump said.Fauci, who was in the room, immediately corrected the President:"Let me make sure you get the ... information. A vaccine that you make and start testing in a year is not a vaccine that's deployable."CNN's Maegan Vazquez contributed to this report. Read more: CNN
The virus makes the timeline however we're not all snowflakes and some of us are willing to fight for our God given rights in spite of the challenge Now we know Y Italy is suffering so many deaths fr Corona--It was due 2 the large of Chinese tourists who were infected, while the Chinese Govt kept it a secret. China must pay BIG!! BOYCOTT ALL CHINESE PRODUCTS.
AllenSc93390181 Well said, Dr. Fauci. WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO WORK. THE EFFECTS OF NOT WORKING WILLBE FAR WORSE THAN THIS VIRUS. CNN will use Fauci to try to make Trump look bad. Even in an amazing time of crisis, CNN practices their terrible narrative Trump is not going to care until you man up and verbally kick him in the dick. Tell the people of the states that trump is WRONG when he speaks
Time to stop airing the Trump propaganda daily broadcast. EnoughIsEnough The comments “appear” to be at odds. No not even close, but the Clown News Network wants you to believe that. On one hand you have the President being optimistic, on the other hand you have the Doctor creating stay at home expectations until the good news you can have both
jaketapper To remind Fauci is a Doctor and not a President. He worries about health. Trump has many more hats to wear. Economy, Militarily to name a few. MSM is cheering for a fight or failure at what human cost? Trump doing ok and he is the President like it or not. Hate to say it but why are we social distancing for. If the virus makes the time line then we can't do anything about it. But they say we are flattening the curve to change the time line. He is very good but you need a mix to get the whole story. Never going to come from CNN.
You keep reporting that this is very fast spreading and contagious. Really? If so then use the numbers you keep telling us are there. That there are atleast 8 infected for each confirmed case when calculating mortality rate. If you do rate is more like .18% not 1, 2 or 4 percent
‘You don’t make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline,’ says Dr. Anthony FauciAmerica’s top infectious disease expert had a stark response Wednesday when asked about a timeline for when the coronavirus outbreak can be considered... Listen to the doctor, not the president. 🙂 ChinaVirus No, people not being able to feed themselves also makes the timeline.
Where's the vaccine fucki Is a time line in your pants Yes yes and yes it really depends on the VIRUS's PLATEAU that death tolls stopped and starting to decline. realDonaldTrump should give the floor ONLY to Dr Fauci. He is the only person who takes this COVID19 Pandemic Crisis seriously without sugarcoating the real SITUATION.
Funny, that’s the one line you keep pushing. jaketapper CNN would love to see economy close rest of the year that they can blame this Great President.NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN .. BestPresidentEver Trump2020LandslideVictory susannareid100 Someone best tell Donny Orange. He's planning on it being done by Easter!!
But Easter would be “beautiful” We make the timeline. The virus can go fuck itself. 😉 Have you tol6 this to the president Thank you Dr. Fauci. It’s time Trump starts praying to his Maker. He’s going down - straight to hell.
Tensions with Trump: Dr. Anthony Fauci on telling the truthNow 79, Dr. Anthony Fauci has helped lead the nation against HIV-AIDS and other crises over decades. But none has tested his political skills like this one. There are no tensions. You guys keep making that crap up. Dr dm said himself “STOP TRYING TO PIT ME AGAINST TRUMP”. Trump good media bad. odd.....in the early 1980's, there were about 20,000 aids/hiv cases. if the USA did a quarantine, there ma be about 50,000 cases now. However no quarantine was implemented, and USA has around 1,200,000 cases. to me, the guy gets a ' D-' grade
I dip, you dip we dip. Dancing with the devil takes two undulating timelines, sir. Both sides, the virus as a single force and the US as a single force are Dancing at 100 MPH KGWNews potus SethAbramson OregonGovBrown tedwheeler The Dr. Already said POTUS was flexible with the Easter timeline. Don't watch ChrisCuomo so unsure if he clarified that with the doc? Or just let it pass? Dosen't look like CC got much print for his interview while thumbing on Twitter.
ChrisCuomo Thank heavens for Dr. Anthony Fauci. The voice of reason in a nutcase Trump administration. Virus is the boss, not you. More people believe Dr. Fauci than Trump (and rightfully so since Fauci is the actual medical expert). It won't be long before Fauci finds himself fired for being too correct and too popular.
Just love wise educated people ChrisCuomo In other words: Pay no attention to the idiot president You bet, Dr. Anthony Fauci ain't going to sell his soul and credibility for any anecdotal information that's not based on science. I hope a certain someone listened to this message and rescinds their comments on 'opening up' and loosened restrictions by Easter.

Please wear a mask!Whether you are sick or not！Please protect yourself and others at the same time! ChrisCuomo Had conked out Chris. Just caught repeat. Gr8 segment! U shud have been Stabler on SVU. It was very reassuring 2 see our beloved Dr. Fauci. And not the apprehensive 1 standing next to hovering Trump... Trump
It's to shut Trump up. We can't afford his misinformation or idiotic ideas. He wants to open up the country, get more people infected and prolong this crisis. Somebody has to take the reigns of power from him. This doctor is not here to sugar coat the situation. It's nice to have someone willing to tell the naked truth. scientistsrule
Especially in the dense populated cities. It varies from county to county. This guy is awful! I’m done with him! Trump promised the night before Easter it will be gone from Earth No,the truth makes the timeline. Whether doc says it or not, truth prevails. CNN, are you enjoying this crisis? You seem to not want treatment that has been used, and seem to want to take Trump off from communicating to the ppl. We don't watch you. You are no longer the news.
CNN licking Fauci asshole once again .. he is a doctor not a deity quit acting like he is the messiah Everyone pray Trump doesn't fire Dr. Fauci
Chris Cuomo Warns Media: Anthony Fauci Is Facing Something Worse Than CoronavirusThe CNN host urged reporters to keep Fauci out of politics and focused on solutions to the pandemic.
Right Trump: nonono，Make Epidemic Great Again goconstance We need you to fight so hard for us the other party has done this to us Chyna trying to defeat our president Will you release the footage of Dr. Fauci? You cut him off during the press conference. I trust him wholeheartedly. Please show what you cut off.
He also requested news organizations to stop painting some sort of divide between him and the President, but here you are... RIGHT Fake news Well, the virus said Easter.
Chris Cuomo Warns Media: Anthony Fauci Is Facing Something Worse Than CoronavirusThe CNN host urged reporters to keep Fauci out of politics and focused on solutions to the pandemic. I hope Fauci Will continue 2 tell the facts Without Interference from the orange menace?! It's not his fault, but Trump's. Trump should have put forward Fauci instead of himself, and he should see about what front liners need in their fights with the pandemic rather than his political gains for winning the election. When do cult 45's eventually see how a dangerous their leader can be when agitated? Does it need 1000 or 100 000 dead Americans, or worse, total collapse of the economy and society?
Anthony Fauci becomes a fringe MAGA targetThe cues from right-wing media, as split as they are, could influence how much President Trump listens to his infectious disease expert in the coming weeks Anybody who believes this is a moron. Politico! These guys will destroy the country... now is not the time for petty politics...
