NIH Director Dr. Fauci Warns of This ‘Very Disturbing’ COVID-19 Symptom Puzzling Experts Worldwide
8Avoid hanging out
Doctor Fauci went on to say “ Bars are the hotspots, no hanging out in bars because we know when the bars get closed, the infection goes down when people just let it rip and go to bars, it goes up, you know, I, I often say, and I don’t mean this to be provocative about it. You know, take your choice. You want to open the bars or you want to open the schools. You know, if you open the bars, you’re going to have community spread that would make it more difficult to open them up.”
9How beaches, bars and rallies increase risk of the virus
He says that is completely true and is a message that everyone should get across. Most people who do that are young and healthy and when they get infected, they may not get seriously ill. This is why there is a big misconception among the younger generation who think that COVID-19 isn’t so serious where they are concerned. ‘Hey, if I get infected, I’m in a vacuum. I’m not hurting anybody. Let me worry about myself.’ That’s completely incorrect.”
10The best thing you can do
After seeing these comments by USA’s top expert on infectious diseases, the best recommendation that anyone can give concerning COVID-19 is to wear a mask, get tested if you think you may have the virus and avoid crowded areas like bars, house parties and beaches. Social distancing is of utmost importance. Practice hygiene and wash hands regularly. Surfaces should be disinfected regularly and until a vaccine is ready, do everything in your power to stop yourself getting or spreading the virus. This is the best way to get through the pandemic and remain healthy.
