Dr Fauci: “Worst Nightmare”

Published on June 21st, 2020

The nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, describes Covid-19 as his “worst nightmare” — a new, highly contagious respiratory infection that causes a significant rate of illness and death. Although Dr. Fauci said he had known that an outbreak like this could occur, one aspect surprised him: “how rapidly it just took over the planet.”

In a period of four months, it has devastated the whole world,” Dr. Fauci told the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. “And it isn’t over yetOh my goodness,” Dr. Fauci said. “Where is it going to end? We’re still at the beginning of it.”

Research is ongoing which Dr. Fauci described as “a work in progress.” Another looming question, he said, was whether survivors who were seriously ill would fully recover.  Covid’s broad range of severity: no symptoms at all to critical illness and death, with lung damage, intense immune responses and clotting disorders that have caused strokes even in young people, as well as a separate inflammatory syndrome causing severe illness in some children makes research slow.
