“It’s been a turbulent week for President Donald Trump’s relationship with the nation’s top infectious-disease specialist. With a rise in COVID-19 cases in most U.S. states, particularly Texas, Arizona, California and Florida, and reversals by some of their plans to reopen, the White House appears to have acknowledged that there is no immediate split in the relationship between Trump and Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for three decades and a leading expert on pandemics in the U.S. for four decades.” MarketWatch

“As the president urges schools to reopen in the fall, Fauci doubled down his criticism of lawmakers,” saying the U.S. must proceed cautiously. In an interview with Stanford Medicine’s Dean Lloyd Minor, the doctor said, “We know from countries throughout the world that you can physically separate people to the point of not allowing the virus to transmit, and the only way to do that is by draconian means of essentially shutting down a country. We know that we can do that if we shut down. The Europeans have done it. People in Asia have done it. We did not shut down entirely.”
