"And when we opened up the country, what we saw, particularly most recently, in the southern states, was an increase of cases to 20, 30, 40, 50 [thousand] and a couple of weeks ago, it was up to 70,000 per day and now it's down between 50 and 60", Fauci told the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

New York, Aug 1 (IANS) America's top infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, in a three hour US Congress hearing, undercut US president Donald Trump's claim that children are nearly immune to the coronavirus, saying that "hundreds of thousands" of children have been infected. "And here's Fraud Fauci preparing us to become timid and afraid, preparing us to be scared to leave our home during the sniffle season, preparing us to do anything the government demands for our own good".

"Well, you make all kinds of recommendations".

He also noted that some states had better success at following reopening guidelines than others.

Jordan argued that permitting protests while cracking down on church services amounts to favoring one First Amendment liberty over another. "You're putting words in my mouth", Fauci replied.

Instead, he reiterated, "Any crowd, whether it's a protest, any crowd when you have people close together without masks is a risk". "I'm just asking should we try to limit the protesting?" Fauci indicated at the time he favored the federal government issuing a nationwide stay-at-home order. "I'm not going to opine on limiting anything ..." "This is something that directly impacts the spread of the virus".

Jordan mentioned the recent arrest of the owners of the Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey. Jordan asked the question again.

"There's no inconsistency congressman", Fauci retorted. Jordan asked. "And if you stood right outside of that same business and protested you wouldn't get arrested?" "That's not my position".

"I'm not sure - how do you mean? Do the protests increase the spread of the virus?"

"I didn't say that", a visibly perturbed Fauci said. "You have mucosa in the nose, mucosa in the mouth, but you also have mucosa in the eye".

President Trump rebuffed Dr.

Yet in an interview with KHN, the nation's leading transmittable illness professional, Dr Anthony Fauci, stated he's "cautiously optimistic" that scientists will get rid of such challenges.

Results from a study from South Korea, published by the CDC, show older kids most likely transmit COVID-19 to their household at rates similar to adults.

Dr. Anthony Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was asked why Europe has been able to largely contain the virus while the U.S. has seen a rise in new cases.

He reassured lawmakers that all safety precautions will be taken by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration before the vaccine is made available to the public, encouraging all Americans to take the vaccine.

President Trump responded on Twitter.

"The administration's approach of deferring to states, sidelining experts and rushing to reopen has prolonged this virus and led to thousands of preventable deaths", said panel Chairman James Clyburn, who denounced Trump's coronavirus response as "among the worst of any country in the world".

Over 2.2 million United States children have been infected with the novel coronavirus and more than 900 children have needed intensive care hospitalisation until July 30, according to the public database COVKID Project.

"Our massive testing capability, rather than being praised, is used by the Lamestream Media and their partner, the Do Nothing Radical Left Democrats, as a point of scorn", the president continued.
