Daily Mail: 'If you're going for a touchdown, don't spike the ball on the 5-yard line,' Dr Fauci warns US could follow Italy with another lockdown if it opens up too early – but says Biden's goal of normalcy by July 4 is 'reasonable'
* Dr Anthony Fauci on Sunday cautioned that the US isn't out of the woods yet * He noted that the nation continues to see roughly 55,000 new cases each day – down from a peak of nearly 249,000 per day in mid-January * 'Even though the decline was steep, we absolutely need to avoid the urge to say: "Everything is going great,"' Fauci told Meet the Press * 'If you are going for a touchdown, don't spike the ball on the five-yard line. When you plateau, there is always a risk of a surge,' he said * He pointed to Italy, which is set to enter a new lockdown on Monday * But Fauci said he believes Joe Biden's goal of return to normalcy by July 4 is 'quite reasonable' if vaccinations continue at a rapid pace * The US saw a record 4.6 million people receive jabs on Saturday
Dr Anthony Fauci has warned that the US could follow in Italy's footsteps and see a second coronavirus lockdown if restrictions are lifted too quickly as new cases plateau and deaths decline.
