Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Sunday the American public shouldn't worry about the coronavirus outbreak in China.
"It's a very, very low risk to the United States," Fauci said during an interview with radio show host John Catsimatidis.
"But it's something that we as public health officials need to take very seriously... It isn't something the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about. Because we have ways of preparing and screening of people coming in [from China]. And we have ways of responding - like we did with this one case in Seattle, Washington, who had traveled to China and brought back the infection."

Now I’m worried.
Just started chugging my vitamin C!
I wonder how much longer before panic starts.
Either this is real, or someone is trying to stoke panic.
A government agency telling me not to worry about something makes me worry about something.
Maybe I’m just paranoid.
And above-ground nuclear testing is risk-free. Bring the family out to see the display - heck, if it wasn't safe would we let our soldiers deploy so close to the tests...?
If the goverment tells you not to worry,,,start worrying,,,
That may very well be the intent of the people publishing the article.
The government saying nothing to worry about is like the owner of a losing football team publicly saying he supports the coach. Sure sign the coach will be gone soon.
Dont believe anything from government until its been officially denied.
Perhaps because we arent filthy, IP stealing, fentanyl pushing, chicom buggerers? Hmmmm?
Are we living in the 1800s where asians can only get here in a slow boat from china..this guy should be fired
China has 56 million people under lock down
and this idiot is whistling away like a fool on a walk on the beach .
Where is WHO .
Do these Chinese own them too .
I'm not worried about the outbreak in China. I am a little concerned about a possible outbreak in the USA though.
“This is the same guy that called AIDs a pandemic ... just saying”
I think he also said we didn’t have much to worry about with Ebola?
Yep, don’t worry. /s
OMG. Now this! And I was just getting over my case of Ebola.
Following Barack Obama’s lead on treating Ebola victims in the US, President Hillary Clinton today announced she will be converting nearly a quarter of all US hospitals to Corona virus centers and airlifting the majority of Chinese Corona virus victims to the US.
