Dr. Fauci shares the latest updates surrounding the country’s plans for coronavirus as well as possibilities of a second wave.
“Clearly this is something that is hurting from the standpoint of economics … but unless we get the virus under control, the real recovery economically is not going to happen,” Fauci told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“If you jump the gun and go into a situation where you have a big spike, you’re going to set yourself back,” Fauci warned. “So as painful as it is to go by the careful guidelines of gradually phasing into a reopening, it’s going to backfire” if the process is rushed. “That’s the problem.”
