‘I do not know nor can anyone know’ what the pandemic will look like in the fall, Fauci says

As the school year approaches and flu season looms on the horizon, the U.S. continues to battle a worsening coronavirus pandemic. No one can predict how the pandemic will play out in the fall, the nation’s top infectious disease expert said today.

“I do not know…nor can anyone know what the fall is going to bring,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said today (Aug. 3) during a Q&A put together by the Journal JAMA Network. Back in the spring, when the coronavirus was mainly ravaging the northeast, there was talk of a “second wave” in the fall, Fauci said. That was assuming these numbers would have dropped down to a baseline…but they have not.
