Dr. Anthony Fauci: Get Ready for Second Round of Coronavirus

New York, March 26 (SocialNews.XYZ) Coronavirus could very well become a "seasonal, cyclical" infection, based on the patterns it is exhibiting through its spread in the southern hemisphere, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious diseases scientist on the White House coronavirus task force.

Additionally, Fauci said the USA needs to develop a vaccine and test it quickly so it will be available for the next cycle as well as a "menu of drugs that we have shown to be effective and shown to be safe".

"The way we do that is by increasing testing and identifying people who are infected, isolating them getting out of circulation, and then do contact tracing", Fauci said.

Speaking at a White House briefing, the top health official noted that the virus has now traveled to the southern hemisphere, currently shifting into the colder season, while noting that whenever there is an outbreak in the southern hemisphere, a comeback of the disease "will be inevitable", even if it temporarily disappears in the northern hemisphere. Until now, two vaccines have entered human trials - one in the United States and another in China - but they are still at least a year away from deployment.

Meanwhile, the drugs used in most treatments for coronavirus - from anti-HIV drugs to antimalarial chloroquine - are ones that increase the immunity of a person, because that is what the virus targets.

"I know we'll be successful in putting this thing down now, but we really need to be prepared for another cycle", Fauci said during a press briefing at the White House.

Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper - still preliminary and awaiting peer-review - that reached the same conclusion.

These were the details of the news Covid-19 could become seasonal, says top U.S. scientist for this day.

As of now, the contagious disease has more than 2,500 confirmed cases and eight deaths in Australia. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
