The resurgence of coronavirus infections in the South and West is now moving to the Midwest, said Dr. Anthony Foachy, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday.
In Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California, an increase in the percentage of coronavirus tests that returned positive indicated a further resurgence, Foki said.
“We’re starting to see that in some states now ̵1; Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and other states,” he added.
Fautsi said a group of White House coronaviruses warned governors at a conference on Tuesday that they needed to come out ahead of the curve.
“Because what we see now is what actually happened a couple of weeks ago, and what we will see in a couple of weeks is what we are doing now,” he said.
“What is bound to happen is that states that are not yet in trouble are more likely to get into trouble,” Foki added.
Foki’s Tips: Reviving states need to look at the guidelines for rediscovery, Foki said, stressing the need to adhere to phased rediscovery.
“Not all states have done it, even in those states that have done it, some people in the state haven’t listened to what suggestions were in those recommendations. So what we’re dealing with now, we want to make sure that when we start to see these bursts, you may have to go back a bit, “he said.
Fauci said, however, he did not consider it necessary to return to a complete shutdown.
“I think psychologically it would be very difficult to accept people, but what we can do is if you call for a pause, timeout and think, maybe you want to step back a bit, not necessarily all the way back to turn off, but enough to restore the leg, then move on to the opening much more carefully. “
