Public health officials are bracing for a new round of COVID-19 case spikes as many Americans traveled and held large family gatherings over the Thanksgiving holiday in defiance of mitigation guidance from the government, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, warned that as the nation heads into December, officials expect “we might see a surge superimposed on the surge we are already in.”
“I don’t want to frighten people except to say it’s not too late at all for us to do something about this,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Fauci urged Americans to take precautions, including social distancing and wearing masks during and after travel back home.
Even with vaccinations likely to begin within weeks, Fauci said the nation is entering “really a precarious situation.” He noted that infected people may not develop symptoms for two weeks, and asymptomatic people can still spread the virus.
“We are going to have to make decisions as a nation, state, city and family that we are in a very difficult time, and we’re going to have to do the kinds of restrictions of things we would have liked to have done, particularly in this holiday season,” he said.

This is an entirely unsubstantiated and unscientific claim made by the supposed "Top Expert"
This is WAY past trying to control a virus that thrives and abounds in 50 states. Why not teach people how to build up their immune system, be strong, come out of the bubble and just get the herd immunized.
Dr. Fasci warned,” There’ll be an explosion of Covid in the coming weeks. A veritable ‘ronagasm’ of the virus going everywhere and getting on everything if people continue to ignore wearing their maks, of not social distancing, nor washing their hands.”
Do we have 12 years left to do something about COVID?
This COVID stuff is looking more and more like GlowBull Warming every day.
Yes, it's everyone's duty to contract the Bat-flu (except the most vulnerable) so we can develop herd immunity, and move on as normal Americans.
Okay, I'll do something.
And Merry Christmas to all!
Surge within a surge.
Good gosh....this sham wow guy just won’t stop.
It’s not too late for all of us to do something?
Like what? Put the 15 pound turkey back in the bag?
Get lost, FRAUDci.
Sit down and shut up, Shorty.
BatFlu was a joke for me and probably 99.9% of others that get/got it. People with compromised immune systems and comorbidities need to be careful and we will help you out but please KAREN, let us live our lives!
In colder weather, if you exhale and can see your breath coming through the mask...it's doing nothing.
Dr. Fasci warned,” There’ll be an explosion of Covid in the coming weeks.
Only if complicit hospitals and county health directors continue to ‘doctor’ the numbers.
This shrimp doesn’t want to let his 15 minutes go does he?
Fauci is ignoring the science that shows asymptomatic people do NOT infect others ( or if it occurs is a rare anomaly)
He sounds almost hopeful there are further severe intrusions on individual liberty
Reality is a harsh refute to the zealots of the secular religion of Masking & Distancing.

Actually, I disagree with your assessment. The real issue with Fauci’s claim isn’t a lack of substantiation or scientific basis. The real issue is “so what”? All of Fauci’s claim may be correct and not matter one whit. What matters is can we do anything about the virus and the answer to that is no. What also matters is whether the virus is a realistic health risk and the answer to that is if one considers the fatality rate, that answer must be ‘no’.
Carrying the water for Bill Gates.
For the love of God somebody black bag that guy!😠
I swear if they had to put a photo next to the definition of “a Karen” in the Dictionary of US English Slang it would be Dr. Fauci’s.
