To start, Fauci made it clear the virus isn’t going away, even after a vaccine is developed. He said there would be a resurgence in the upcoming fall and winter months, but it might not turn into another peak.
Dr. Fauci says we have months to prepare for a potential second wave. Some preparations could include more testing (which is increasing) and better isolation of those who test positive. He also advocated for the controversial practice of contact tracing.
According to the doctor, as of May 27, there are about 125 potential vaccine candidates. Some are on track to be authorized for production in December. In the meantime, Fauci recommends regularly washing your hands and wearing face masks in public, even when social distancing.
