The leading US infectious disease expert on Sunday warned of a possible upcoming peak in the coronavirus.
Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, speaking on “This Week” on ABC-TV, said the infection rate would not “come back suddenly” and within weeks come up, following the recent Thanksgiving holiday, “We might see a skyrocket.”
Also on Sunday, Dr Deborah L. Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, said on CBS-TV’s “Face the Nation” that people who have traveled during the holidays “must assume you’ve been exposed, and you’ve been infected and you really need to get tested next week. She also called on people who had traveled during the holidays to avoid people over 65 or who have an underlying illness.
