Dr. Anthony Fauci wants people who still believe Covid-19 is a hoax to know it’s real and that the US needs everyone to get behind public health measures.
Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other health experts have said the next few months will be a challenging time, but Americans can help turn the tide by wearing masks, keeping a distance from others and washing their hands frequently.
However, “trouble is, you go to different parts of the country, and even when the outbreak is clear and hospitals are on the verge of being overrun, there are a substantial proportion of the people who still think that this is not real, that it’s fake news or that it’s a hoax,” Fauci said.
Fauci has advised six presidents. He said he’s never seen anything like this.
