US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — US health expert Anthony Fauci has expressed a positive response to President Donald Trump’s recent measures in the corona crisis. Trump’s cancellation of the Republican party convention in Florida in late August was a good decision, the director of the National Institute for Infectious Diseases told Fox News.
Fauci also welcomed the fact that Trump now advises to wear a protective mask and shows himself wearing a mask. “This will be a good example for the rest of the country,” said Fauci. Trump has become clear about the situation and has adjusted his behavior . In the meantime, more than four million infections with the pathogen Sars-CoV-2 have been detected in the USA with its approximately 330 million inhabitants.
Looking at the many new infections, Fauci said he did not believe that there would be a “complete lockdown” again. But that cannot be ruled out. States with a high infection rate should consider taking the easing of protective measures back one step.
Fauci called for wearing masks and taking hygiene protection measures into account. He was again cautiously optimistic that there would be a vaccine against the coronavirus by the end of the year or early 2021.
Fauci described his relationship with Trump as good. The White House had meanwhile criticized the expert. “He’s a bit of a visionary,” Trump said in a recent Fox News interview. Trump had also described his relationship with Fauci as good.
However, there was always criticism of Fauci from Trump’s environment, and there was repeated speculation about Fauci’s dismissal as a consultant. Trump himself stood out with unorthodox proposals against Corona, such as the injection of disinfectants. He also initially said the virus would go away quickly and called on the population to protest against exit restrictions in the states. After a Trump campaign event in Tulsa, corona infections rose there. The majority of Americans judge Trump’s crisis management poorly.
