Fauci: Lockdowns Could Last Until Next Winter

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told iHeartRadio’s “The Breakfast Club” on Friday that fully reopening the country could take as long as 16 months due to the need for a coronavirus vaccine.

Fauci noted during the interview that the entire process of reopening the country could take anywhere from a year to a year and a half even if the first phase starts relatively soon.

“We won’t have a vaccine for summer. It’s more likely we’ll have one for next winter,” he said.

“Certain parts of the country are ready to take the first steps. You can’t look at it like turning a light switch on and off,” Fauci said. “The program that we spoke about yesterday at the [White House] press conference is a very gradual, step by step [plan] where you have to fulfill certain criteria before you go to Phase 1.”

He added, “It really works. If you do that and [the number of COVID-19 cases] starts coming down, there’s no blips coming back, then you go to the next phase. It was built to be really, really careful about the safety and health of the American public. That’s the first thing. It’s gradual. It’s not on and off.”

Fauci said that because of the differences between regions, travel should still be discouraged to keep the virus from spreading from a highly-infected area to a less infected one.

“That’s the reason why, when we talk about travel, we say only essential travel that’s necessary for a particular area to fulfill their functions as a society,” he said. “If you look carefully at Phase 1, it still has a lot of restrictions. You have to stay 6 feet apart. No more than a crowd of 10. Washing hands carefully. Wearing masks. Even though there are people coming in, they have to make sure it isn’t ‘okay, guys, everything is open let’s do it.’ There’s still a lot of restrictions, even in the areas where they have already taken those first steps towards opening. “

  1. Hey FAUCI. WHY DID THE FLU THAT WE ALREADY HAVE A VACCINE FOR STILL KILL 80 THOUSAND JUST IN 2019??? WHY DIDNT YOU JUMP UP AND SUGGEST WE SHUT SHIT DOWN THEN??? WHY WHEN OBUMMER WAS IN OFFICE AND H1N1 KILLED OVER 220 THOUSAND THERE WAS NEVER A SINGLE WORD FROM YOU ABOUT SHUTTING THE COUNTRY DOWN??? SO FAR THIS YEAR THE REGULAR FLU IS STILL LEADING WITH OVER 40 THOUSAND DEATHS. WHERE IS ALL THE REPORTING ABOUT THAT. MAYBE ITS BECAUSE YOUR BOSSES ARENT MAKING MONEY OFF OF A VACCINE THAT HALF ASS WORKS. LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT NOBODY EVER SAYS A WORD ABOUT WHILE YOU SAY WE SHOULD STAY LOCKED IN. NEVER SEE YOUR ASS STAYING HOME OR WEARING A MASK OR SOCIAL DISTANCING. HARD TO SOCIAL DISTANCE WITH YOUR HEAD UP KILLARYS ASS

  2. Gotta agree with Tim Beach and Pam. I was already unemployed without UI to support me when this attempt to communize America started. There will be no government paycheck for me. I gotta get to work. Unless you fearful ones with paychecks, who think we are just obedient pigs that you can do with as you please, want to send me a paycheck every week until your fear of dying is past, best you stand aside, there is a stampede bearing down on you. (Yep, I do run-on sentences).
    Purhaps now is a good time to consider getting Jesus the Saviour in control of your eternal destiny.
    And Fauci, why you hate America, and trying to desroy her?

  3. Well Jane.. Fuci is part of the deep state.
    And he probably has stock (or kickbacks) from the phama scum companies.
    They don’t do face mask or social distancing because they how it just money scam! And I agree with you also.

  4. When they finally come out with a vaccine it will cost big bucks and they will force everyone to take it. They will make the children take it as if they are not over vaccinated already . They will rush this to market to make the big bucks and to be able to say we came up with the magic pill. However we will not know about the side effects until years from now.

  5. Dr. Fauci should not be the one to make the decision about when our country will be allowed to engage in business and commerce again. I can’t imagine what he is thinking when he says we have to wait until there is a vaccine. How does he think people will survive without money that jobs provide, without hope, with staying at home for months on end? That is just an untenable situation; we have to open up again, follow safe rules, and get back to work. People are going to die from the virus, from the flu, from cancer, from heart disease, from auto wrecks, from whatever; we are never safe from taking risks.

  6. Dr. Fauci is reveling in his new found power.

    He is in Bill Gates’s pocket and Bill Gates has an agenda – to be one of a few in the world that controlled the world. The Gates Foundation is the second largest donor to WHO after the USA. The Gates Foundation is funding a COVID-19 vaccine and he has a vested interest in making sure there is a need for that vaccine – which is also why he badmouths hydroxychloroquine. He’s an evil megalomaniac and should be investigated for Crimes Against Humanity along with the Chinese and Dr. Fauci.

    The left wing media LOVES Bill Gates [CNN, MSNBC et al] and are happy to spread Gates’s lies and half truths. Dr. Anthony Fauci and The Scarf Queen are helping every day with their commentary. Beware – war is coming to America.
