A top federal health official is issuing a dire warning: Follow recommended coronavirus measures or risk having the worst fall in US public health history.

The United States needs to get control of Covid-19 and carefully reopen the country, or the consequences could be devastating, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday.

"To think that you can ignore the biologic and get the economy back, it's not gonna happen," Fauci, the nation's leading infectious diseases expert, told actor Matthew McConaughey in an interview on Instagram."It's just not gonna happen. You gotta do both. You gotta get control of the biologic as you carefully open the country."Fauci emphasized the importance of acting in a measured, prudent way. He noted that Americans have seen the consequences of jumping over the guideposts that have been established for safe reopening.He said it goes beyond the financial aspects and that what happens it could be devastating psychologically and medicallyRead More"If you're really shut down, children may not get their vaccinations. People don't go to hospitals when they get chest pain," he added."There's a lot of different things that could go wrong, beyond the economy."He also gave another grim warning."There's projections that if you stay shut down, the number of deaths unrelated to Covid will go up," he said."The number of suicides, overdoses, family issues, such as child abuse and things like that, they all go up."Ultimately, Fauci said that he believes the country can come together to overcome the virus.The CDC issued a dire warning for the fall A top federal health official is issuing a dire warning: Follow recommended coronavirus measures or risk having the worst fall in US public health history."For your country right now and for the war that we're in against Covid, I'm asking you to do four simple things: wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands and be smart about crowds," said Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "I'm not asking some of America to do it," he told WebMD."We all gotta do it."Without following the recommendations, this could be"the worst fall, from a public health perspective, we've ever had," he said.Some officials are already preparing for the coming months. Mayor Quinton Lucas of Kansas City, Missouri, extended the city's coronavirus state of emergency order until January 16, 2021. The order requires most people to wear face coverings in public places and limits crowds at bars to 50% capacity."It is now obvious to everyone that Covid-19 is not going away over the next five months," Kansas City Health Department Director Dr. Rex Archer said in a news release Thursday."As we move out of summer and into fall and winter, we will still be confronting this health emergency."The flu season also occurs in the fall and winter, the CDC said.

More than 2,000 students, teachers and staff have been placed under quarantine in the few reopened districts in several states, a CNN tally of reported cases shows. Of those, at least 230 positive coronavirus cases have been reported among the school districts reopened for in-person learning.Supporters of the Cherokee County School District's decision to reopen schools cheer on faculty arriving to the district's headquarters in Canton, Georgia. In Georgia, more than 1,100 students, teachers and staff in the Cherokee County School District. about 40 miles north of downtown Atlanta, are under quarantine due to dozens of Covid-19 positive cases or exposure. Schools reopened 10 days ago."The children in this beautiful state are not disposable, but that is exactly how you and the superintendent are regarding them," Brandy Heath, a mother of two Cherokee County students, wrote in a letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
