Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Fauci not ready for national lockdown unless COVID-19 gets ‘really, really bad’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The nation’s coronavirus infections may be on the rise, but Dr. Anthony Fauci said he is not ready to advocate for a national lockdown.

Fauci, on an interview to air Sunday on “60 Minutes,” said the pandemic would have to get “really, really bad” before he could back such a measure, according to a clip of the sit down released by CBS.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who is on President Trump’s coronavirus task force, said the country is “fatigued with restrictions.”

“So we want to use public health measures, not to get in the way of opening the economy, but to being a safe gateway to opening the economy,” Fauci said. “So instead of having an opposition: Open up the economy [to] get jobs back, or shut down. No. Put ‘shut down,’ away and say, ‘We’re going to use public health measures to help us safely get to where we want to go.”
