Coronavirus: US may see ‘100,000 new cases a day’

0



The US could soon see 100,000 new cases of coronavirus every day, the country’s top infectious diseases expert has warned.

Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told a US Senate committee that the daily surge in cases could more than double if Americans don’t start following public health recommendations.

Currently 40,000 new infections are being reported across the country every day, but this could go up to 100,000 if Americans do not wear facemasks and observe social distancing, he said.
