US, July 01, 2020 (TNS): US government’s top infectious-diseases expert, Anthony Fauci has warned that COVID-19 cases in the country could go up to 100,000 per day if the current trend does not turn around.

Speaking before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Fauci said the country is not in total control of the coronavirus pandemic and it is going to be very disturbing.

Some states that had moved to reopen businesses and activities quickly in response to frustration with lockdowns are finding themselves forced to dial back on some moves.

Fauci said outbreaks in various parts of the country put the entire country at risk and warned that far worse conditions are ahead without new efforts to tamp down spread.
