NIAID Director suggests new COVID-19 cases could ‘go up to 100,000 a day’

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, provided a dire warning today during a Senate committee hearing. “We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around,” Fauci said in response to a question about the likely U.S. coronavirus death toll 

Meanwhile, the European Union has confirmed that Americans will not be allowed to travel to the bloc of 27 countries when it reopens to some foreign travel Wednesday.
