Fauci: Coronavirus Likely To Become Seasonal

Wochit Postables
Anthony Fauci warned Sunday that the COVID-19 pandemic could become 'seasonal.' Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Business Insider reports Fauci said the inability to contain the outbreak globally meant there could be a resurgence by next season. He added officials should prepare for a second rise of the virus by pushing for increased resources, including a vaccine. Fauci said Sunday that it would be "a false statement" to say the US government has the outbreak "under control." That's a contradiction of President Donald Trump's regular reassurances on behalf of his administration. The US has had more coronavirus cases and fatalities during pandemic than anywhere else in the world, with more than 324,000 cases and at least 9,100 deaths.
