Fauci, Redfield testify on Covid-19 reopening

  • Four out of five cases needed intensive care and one out of five required mechanical ventilation

A total of 36 states are now seeing an increase in cases compared to the previous week.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans more guidelines for local school systems, Director Robert Redfield said. "We don't think it's the right message".

Though he said he couldn't make an exact prediction without worrying that the totals would later be seen as either overblowing or lowballing it, he said that it'll be "very disturbing, I can guarantee you that".

Those four states are Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas.

Some states that had moved to reopen businesses and activities quickly in response to frustration with lockdowns are finding themselves forced to dial back on some moves.

On Tuesday, New York, New Jersey and CT added California and seven other states to a list of those from which visitors must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

"To every American, we want to assure you that we're ready", he added.

"We're looking at the Fourth of July coming up in a couple of days, and frankly it scares me", he said. "It is not a suppression of your freedom", Adams said.

"Convalescent plasma, we have evaluated the safety through a large expanded access program at the Mayo Clinic and it's been found to be safe, and over 20,000 patients who administered it", Hahn said.

He suggested that not enough Americans are adhering to social distancing or wearing face coverings.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday launched a fresh attack on US President Donald Trump's "historic mismanagement" of the pandemic. He spoke about needing to self-quarantine after a member of his staff was diagnosed with the virus and said the Senate physician credited the staffer's mask with protecting Alexander from infection.

The key is for the public to stop what Fauci called "an all-or-nothing phenomenon", meaning either a state is locked down or people are in bars without masks on.

"But it's something we need to keep our eye out on just the way we did in 2009 with the emergence of the swine flu", he said.

Pence said in his comments later that he agreed with Fauci.

Also during the hearing, Fauci said he's "concerned" about how some states have gone about reopening their economies and said he's observed some states "skipping steps" on federal government guidelines.

Redfield told the Senate panel that companies also need to insist on social distancing and masks.

The United States is leading the world in both officially confirmed infections and fatalities as it continues to see surges in new cases, hospitalizations and deaths in many states.

Later on, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) asked Fauci about further clarification about schools opening back up again.

Some parts of the country are now seeing alarming spikes in COVID-19 cases as the chickens come home to roost from states' reopening efforts.

But a vaccine is at the very least many months away. As for a vaccine, Fauci says that a safe and effective vaccine is not guaranteed, but experts are hopeful that doses will be available to the public by next year.

Fauci and other US health officials also testified about the need to build up confidence in vaccination, in anticipation of a COVID-19 vaccine becoming available in the future.
