Anthony Fauci Warns We Could See a Coronavirus Round 2!

Anthony Fauci has warned that we must be prepared for COVID-19 to become “seasonal” and we could face a “second round,” of spread even once the current crisis has ended.

During a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, suggested that COVID-19 could potentially become cyclical with weather patterns.

“The reason I say that is that what we’re starting to see now, in the Southern Hemisphere … is that we’re having cases that are appearing at they go into their winter season. And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we’ll get a cycle around the second time,” said Fauci.

Fauci, a public member of the White House coronavirus task force, said that phenomenon necessitates the development of a vaccine in the near future to mitigate future cases of COVID-19.

“I know we’ll be successful in putting this down now. But we really need to be prepared for another cycle. And what we’re doing, I believe, will prepare us well,” he concluded.

Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the task force, echoed Fauci’s assessment, saying the steps the Trump administration is taking to deter the spread of the virus are “dealing with Cycle A right now.”

Fauci has previously estimated that a vaccine for the novel coronavirus could potentially take up to a year to develop and distribute to the public. “It will take at least a year to a year-and-a-half to have a vaccine we can use,” Fauci said in early March.

Nearly 467,000 people have tested positive for the coronavirus globally. Of those, at least 21,000 have died from it, and more than 113,000 have recovered. In the United States, there have been at least 65,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, more than 900 deaths, and 361 reported recoveries, according to the latest reading of the Johns Hopkins University tracker.

    It will sweep the world. Eventually a vaccine will be developed to lessen its effects. So far, it’s not as bad as some previous viruses including the flu. The death rate is higher among the elderly or anyone with a chronic health issue as expected. Go back to work. Stay home if you are retired or have a medical issue -and wait for the vaccine or antibodies via a blood transfusion.

    We can’t close the country down every time we have a round of flu or COVID. Plain and simple, it is not feasible to remain vital and stable if we insist on doing this.

    We would be in much better shape if Trump had gotten off his happy ass and have started the preparations when he was first briefed. He puts politics ahead of everything else.

      What?! He banned travel from China by the end of January. He mentioned the virus in his State of the Union address….you remember – the one that Nancy Pelosi tore up. The Dems were busy trying to impeach Trump into mid-February instead of focusing on the virus. Pelosi on Feb 24 told everyone to come to Chinatown to celebrate and dine out. It was the damn Democrats that have been fiddling while WuFlu was spreading! Idiot….

    I finally have spotted that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert at NIH seems to have his real mixed feelings inside himself as his facial expressions aren’t pleasent about US President Donald Trump’s goals that really are flawed and inaccurate in his concerns. He still distrusted US President Trump because of dishonest and false statements made by the US President Trump in speeches in Trump White House. I predict that Dr. Anthony Fauci may write the honest book(s) that will reveal truths to outspread to our American public that really has right to know about honest, accurate and true information in future aftermath at end of Trump Era. Only I honestly acknowledge that US PresidentTrump has his hidden darkest side of his true life in his bad backgrounds in his milestone of his true lifetime in a fact. I recognize that Dr. Anthony Fauci really is honest and decent as he disagrees with US President Trump as he doesn’t like US President Trump and his things.

    We still lose more people to seasonal flu than covid19. And covid is way more contagious. Flu Vaccine works and yet not everyone gets it. Will that be the same with a covid virus??

    I would not be surprised that it does become cyclical. But, I predict that it will become much like the flu. Shots similar to annual Flu shots will no doubt be developed as the virus mutates similar to the flu virus and we will need the annual shots to be protected each year. Many of those who caught the virus but got over it will develop either full or partial immunity and never experience it or a very mild case. We have seen that from other virus type infections and I suspect this will be no different.

    Dr Fauci(sic) knows his information. lIDDLE’donnie draft dodger has no clue what he is doing. ignores science and the experts because they don’t agree with him and his fragile ego.

    I don’t care what anyone says but I believe that this “,so called” virus is not a virus at all. It is biological from China. I don’t care if you print this but that is what I believe.
    I hate china!!!!!
