Health Editor’s Note: I am with Fauci in this prediction/statement of medical/scientific fact. We have reached astronomical numbers of coronavirus cases and with that, even though we are not hearing so much about it, the deaths. People are still dying. Some hospitals are daily being pushed to their limits to care for COVID-19 patients.
The subset of Americans who is contracting COVID-19, due to lack of physical distancing, use of masks, is getting younger. Often these infectors are simply carriers and spreaders of coronavirus, as they remain asymptomatic. No symptoms does not mean they are not still spreading virus. The air coming from the lungs/mouth/nose of a person positive for coronavirus can travel, as I have suspected all along, for many, many feet and infect anyone who inhales those virus-containing virus.
The very best way to survive this pandemic first wave and any waves that come behind is to NOT get coronavirus. Physically distance yourself, wear masks in areas where you will be around other people, do not allow yourself to be in crowded situations, and wash, wash, wash your hands before touching your face…Carol
US is still ‘knee-deep’ in the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Fauci says

(CNN)In the span of a week and a half, the number of coronavirus cases in the United States has doubled, yet officials are saying this is still the first wave of the pandemic.
“We are still knee-deep in the first wave of this,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a Facebook and Twitter livestream Monday. “I would say, this would not be considered a wave. It was a surge, or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline … that really never got down to where we wanted to go.”
