Fauci Warns About Early Re-Opening

The infectious disease expert made the comments during testimony before a U.S. Senate panel.

Dr. Anthony Fauci says a premature re-opening of the U.S. economy could lead to severe consequences. Testifying in a video conference during a Senate hearing, the NIH veteran expressed a second wave of coronavirus is “entirely conceivable and possible” in the fall. However, he added a second wave could be handled very effectively to prevent it from becoming another uncontrolled outbreak.
