During CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fauci said Americ is likely to see and coronavirus surge following the holiday season.
Anchor Dana Bash said:
“President-elect Biden said the darkest days of the covid-19 pandemic is ahead of us.”
‘We are averaging 200 thousand now new cases and more than 2,000 deaths each day. Do you agree that the worst is still yet to come?”
“You know, I do, Dana, and the reason I’m concerned and my colleagues and public health are concerned also is that we very well might see a post-seasonal in the sense of Christmas-New Year’s surge.”

“We are really at a very critical point,” Fauci said.

“And, yet, even though we advise not, it’s going to happen,” he added.
“So I share the concern of President-elect Biden that as we get into the next few weeks, it might actually get worse.”
Earlier this month, Fauci warned that Americans to stay away from their own children over Christmas.
The nation’s top infectious disease expert said this he and his wife would not be seeing his three adult children for Christmas or for his birthday on Christmas Eve.
The leading health official urged other Americans to do the same amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
