(NewsReady.com) – Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has bad news about COVID-19. According to his analysis of worldwide infection trends, the virus could be a seasonal issue until there’s a vaccine. Fauci discussed it during a March 26 update.
"We need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around a second time."

Fauci said cases are appearing as countries in the southern hemisphere go into their winter cycles. The doctor explained that if those nations experience a “substantial outbreak,” the US should prepare itself for another cycle.
Currently, experts expect the peak of the infection to hit the US in the coming weeks and months. If the coronavirus can be just as active during the fall and winter months, then America needs to redouble its efforts into finding treatments and cures. If not, we may witness another outbreak for a second time this year.
