Dr Fauci warns the U.S. could see 100,000 new coronavirus cases per day

Dr Anthony Fauci

Dr Anthony Fauci, one of the United States top infectious diseases experts, told a Senate panel Tuesday that he “would not be surprised” to see the number of daily new coronavirus cases increasing to 100,000 per day if the country does not take action to spread new infections.

At a hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, Fauci said he is “very concerned” about the rise in new cases across the country, saying “the numbers speak for themselves.”

“Clearly we are not in total control right now,” Fauci said, noting that “we’re going in the wrong direction” in terms of new cases. Fauci said he could not estimate how many people would ultimately be infected, but said the numbers could get much worse.
