Dr. Anthony Fauci warned the Senate of “suffering and death” if states open up too quickly, as we read in a report from the Washington Post:
Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, warned of “suffering and death that could be avoided” and of further economic damage if states reopen too quickly and said the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus is probably higher than the 80,000 reported.
His comments came during highly anticipated Senate testimony Tuesday as he and other leading federal health officials were pressed on whether the country is ready to reopen. The panel’s chairman and witnesses are appearing remotely in an unusual session that includes the first congressional testimony from Fauci, a key member of the White House coronavirus task force, since President Trump declared the coronavirus crisis a national emergency March 13.
