America is heading into the teeth of the coronavirus outbreak.
Administration officials warn of what is to come.
And Dr. Fauci stood in front of the camera and delivered this direct message to America.
The coronavirus task force projects that in the next week to ten days American will hit the peak of the coronavirus outbreak.
Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Americans of the grizzly news coming down the pike.
Dr. Fauci told the audience to prepare for bad news because as the peak hit, states would report the highest levels of hospitalizations and death tolls.
“Well, this is going to be a bad week. Margaret, unfortunately, if you look at the projection of the curves, of the kinetics of the curves, we’re going to continue to see an escalation. Also, we should hope that within a week, maybe a little bit more, we’ll start to see a flattening out of the curve and coming down,” Dr. Fauci said.
“The mitigation that we’re talking about that you just mentioned is absolutely key to the success of that. So on the one hand, things are going to get bad and we need to be prepared for that. It is going to be shocking to some. It certainly is- is really disturbing to see that. But that’s what’s going to happen before it turns around. So we’ll just buckle down, continue to mitigate, continue to do the physical separation because we got to get through this week that’s coming up because it is going to be a bad week.”
But Dr. Fauci also noted that outbreaks operate on a curve and when the peak hits it also means infections and deaths would then slowly begin to decline.
That means that while it may look like America is experiencing the worst of the coronavirus, the end is actually in sight.
