Fauci ‘totally in favor’ of reopening country if done in an appropriate way

The nation’s leading infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, said Friday that he is “totally in favor” of reopening the country if it is done appropriately and cautiously.

In an interview with CNBC, Fauci said the nation “can’t stay locked down,” adding that “irreparable damage” and “unintended consequences” could ensue if lockdowns are prolonged, including risks to public health.

“It is for that reason why the guidelines are being put forth so that the states and the cities can start to reenter and reopen,” he said.

Fauci said he does have some concerns if states or local communities are skipping some benchmarks in the recommended guidelines for reopening.

He said as states reopen people should take precautions such as wearing masks, social distancing and staying away from crowds.
