Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert who served Presidents dating back to Ronald Reagan, says reopening too soon will result in “needless suffering and death.”

Fauci’s testimony comes while President Trump pressures States to reopen their economies after weeks of shutdown.

There are now over 30-million people in the U.S. unemployed due to the ongoing pandemic in the U.S.

Fauci along with other top White House officials are currently quarantining due to multiple exposures to COVID-19 positive cases near both the President and Vice President.

“If we skip over the checkpoints in the guidelines…then we risk the danger of multiple outbreaks throughout the country,” Fauci said. “This will not only result in needless suffering and death, but would actually set us back on our quest to return to normal.”

As of Tuesday morning, over 4.2 million people across the globe had been infected by COVID-19.  In the United States, 1,351,200 called the U.S. Here in the U.S. over 1.35 million have been infected by the pandemic to date with over 80,000 dead since early March.
