The COVID Diaries – 94 30th June
Dr Anthony Fauci, regarded as the top US infectious disease expert, said the country could see 100,000 new coronavirus cases daily unless action is taken to reverse the epidemic.
Appearing before a US Senate committee on Tuesday, Fauci warned that the US is “going in the wrong direction” over handling the coronavirus, and said the death toll “is going to be very disturbing”.
He appeared a day after the White House insisted the outbreak had been reduced to “embers”. However, 40,000 cases were reported in the Us last week in one day.
