surviving the next month of COVID-19: “You have to assume pandemic is going to get worse” -Fauci

3 min read

Meanwhile, Trump’s on the golf course today.

Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, said on Tuesday that America has to assume that the coronavirus pandemic is going to get worse.

The U.S. is already dealing with the worst month of the pandemic thus far. The nation surpassed 19 million coronavirus infections on Sunday, and December is the deadliest month of the outbreak.

“I think we just have to assume that it’s going to get worse,” Fauci said during an interview on CNN.

He noted that the U.S. is seeing between 100,000 and 200,000 new infections each day and added that once cases begin to rise, increases in hospitalizations and deaths follow.

“I hope we don’t just get to that level of continually seeing over 200,000 because, as you know, it staggers. You get cases, you get hospitalizations and then you get deaths,” Fauci said. “It’s highly predictable that once you increase in those number of cases in a staggered way every couple of weeks, you get increase in the number of hospitalizations.”
