Dr. Anthony Fauci warns that the coronavirus will not be eradicated

Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House coronavirus counselor, said on Wednesday that it is unlikely to eliminate coronavirus.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said in an interview with the Tuberculosis Control Alliance that while the virus will not disappear, it is possible that world leaders and public health officials will reduce the virus to "low levels".

I think it's a mixture of good public health measures, a degree of global herd immunity and a good vaccine, which I hope and feel the cautious optimism that we're going to get, I think when we put all three together, we will control this, whether this year or next year. I am not sure. "

But he added: "I really don't see that we are eradicating it."

Fossey's comments conflict with President Donald Trump, who has repeated his claim on Tuesday night that the virus will disappear. The president's remark comes amid warnings from experts, including at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that Covid-19 cases and deaths could rise this fall.

"The virus will disappear. It will disappear," Trump said at a White House press conference on the epidemic.

The coronavirus does not disappear and continues to spread rapidly across the United States. The virus has infected more than 3.9 million people in the country, killing at least 142,090 as of Wednesday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Texas and Florida recorded grim records on Monday due to daily coronavirus viruses based on the seven-day moving average, as hospitals continue to rise in 34 states.
