U.S. government's top health advisor Dr Fauci has warned of ‘serious consequences’ if lockdown measures are relaxed abruptly. Dr Fauci cautioned senators that Coronavirus will spread if the restrictions are lifted hastily and abruptly. Dr Fauci’s statement comes after President Trump declared that the U.S. has ‘prevailed’ in its fight against COVID-19 and encouraged businesses and schools to reopen. Dr Fauci disagreed with this suggestion and warned that little spikes will turn into an outbreak if the country reopened too soon.
