Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases warns that the country will face devastating consequences if it does not continue to carefully reopen.
Dr. Fauci did, however, emphasize that the biological realities of COVID-19 cannot be ignored, and stated that the country has already seen the negative effects of attempting to bypass health and safety guidelines when reopening. “It's just not gonna happen. You gotta do both. You gotta get control of the biologic as you carefully open the country.”
The implications of remaining locked down, Dr. Fauci explained, are not purely financial. The psychological and medical well being of Americans is at stake.
“There's a lot of different things that could go wrong, beyond the economy,” he said. “There's projections that if you stay shut down, the number of deaths unrelated to COVID will go up. The number of suicides, overdoses, family issues, such as child abuse and things like that, they all go up.”
