The world may face a more serious spread of the coronavirus pandemic. About it declared Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for the Study of Allergic and Infectious Diseases of the United States, in an interview with the Italian edition of Corriere Della Sera.

“If all countries do not take restraining measures, then we will face an even wider spread of infection,” said Fauchi.

According to him, the epidemiological situation in the USA got out of control, large outbreaks of COVID-19 are also observed around the world: in Brazil, South Africa, Asia.

“In short, we are only at the beginning of a global pandemic, which is likely to worsen,” the infectious disease specialist said. He added that so far there is no evidence that the virus itself is weakening.

“Coronavirus will stay with us for a long time until we take effective containment measures and develop a vaccine,” said Fauchi. He admitted that the anti-disease drug may appear in late 2020 – early 2021.

The physician connected the new outbreaks of COVID-19 in the USA and other countries with too sharp easing of restrictions, a frivolous attitude of citizens to the disease.
