Top US doctor says coronavirus now an ‘outbreak,’ possibly a ‘pandemic’

A doctor on the front lines of battling coronavirus in the US said this week that the rapid spread of the deadly bug has risen to the level of an “outbreak” — and possibly even a “pandemic.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, told NBC Nightly News’ Richard Engel Monday that the illness — which has infected 100 people, killing six in the US — is “an evolving situation.”

“We’re dealing with clearly an emerging infectious disease that is now reached outbreak proportions and likely pandemic proportions,” he said. “If you look at, you know, by multiple definitions of what a pandemic is, the fact is this is multiple sustained transmissions of a highly infectious agent in multiple regions of the globe.”

    China has 1.386 billion people. Corona virus has developed in just over 63,000 cases there. So statistically, it is not pandemic yet. It is not nor will it become pandemic in the USA because of all the precautions and educating of the public, thanks to the President’s quick travel ban in January, the presentions on TV, constant news coverage, work of the CDC, NHO and all state government health orgs.
