Dr. Fauci Says Mitigation Efforts Like Social Distancing Are Working (VIDEO)

The White House presser on Coronavirus on Tuesday was very serious.

The numbers presented by Trump and his task force were astounding. They project that the U.S. could see 100 to 200 thousand deaths due to the disease.

However, there was some good news as well.

Dr. Fauci said that mitigation efforts are making a difference.

Fauci: Coronavirus mitigation measures can’t be loosened

Mitigation strategies should not be loosened if Americans hope to lessen the impact of the coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday.

“It’s not time to take your foot off the accelerator … but to just press it down,” Fauci said during a White House press briefing.

Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, said models show that measures such as social distancing can bring down the infection curve and prevent a worst-case scenario — but only if they are rigorously followed.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, acknowledged that mitigation strategies are not easy.

“This is tough. People are suffering. People are dying. … This is going to be the answer to our problems. So let’s all pull together and make sure, as we look forward to the next 30 days, we do it with all the intensity and force that we can,” Fauci said.
