Dr. Anthony Fauci, the respected head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has a dire warning for the citizens of the United States. Last Thursday, he warned that people should be ready to “hunker down” this fall to fight COVID-19. Dr. Fauci believes that things are going to get worse and there will be a surge in cases.
7. Never Underestimate COVID-19
While addressing a panel of doctors from the Harvard Medical School, Dr. Fauci went on to say, “Don’t ever, ever underestimate the potential of the pandemic. And don’t try to look at the rosy side of things.” Clearly, the numbers speak for themselves. Currently, the death toll in the U.S. stands at close to 205,000 and the number continues to increase at an alarming rate.
6. Looking to the Southern Hemisphere
In the southern hemisphere of the globe, winter is ending, and spring is set to arrive. Clearly, mask wearing and other preventative measures did work to slow not only the spread of COVID-19, but also appeared to slow the spread of the flu and prevent outbreaks. However, despite those promising indications, it is uncertain if the northern hemisphere will fare as well.
