Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, warned Friday that stay-at-home orders that are intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus could end up causing irreparable damage if they are imposed for too long.
I dont want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go, Fauci said during an interview with CNBC.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said "now is the time, depending upon where you are and what your situation is, to begin to seriously look at reopening the economy, reopening the country to try to get back to some degree of normal.
Fauci warned states not to reduce social-distancing measures too quickly, advising they must take very significant precautions.
In general, I think most of the country is doing it in a prudent way, he said. There are obviously some situations where people might be jumping over that. I just say please proceed with caution if youre going to do that.
Earlier this month, Fauci warned senators that areas that disregard government guidelines in reopening their economies risk "triggering an outbreak you may not be able to control."
Separately, Fauci said on Friday that he had reviewed data on Moderna's (MRNA) - Get Report coronavirus vaccine candidate and found that "it is really quite promising." He also noted, however, that full data have not been peer-reviewed.

This Fen guy is a toll
Being a swamp dwelling bureaucrat usually means no accountability. Maybe you are starting to think there may actually be consequences to your actions?
Fauci’s always right because he gives multiple answers ranging across No to Yes.
Its like playing roulette and betting on all the numbers.
Another political prostitute
I’d love see his bank records and tax returns
RE: Faucis always right because he gives multiple answers ranging across No to Yes.
Why not just be honest and say “I’m not sure” or “I don’t know”?
What a flicking putz this guy is.
Hes a bigger flipflopper than John Fn Kerry.
He’s a doctor.
It’s a confidence image thing. Plus its an ego thing, in a very top position like his.
Boy, he sure jumped on that bandwagon after the train had left the station.
Now that the country is almost in ruins. . . I’m not sure why President Trump keeps him on unless it is to expose his past and his incompetence.
Hes a doctor.
No he is damn idiot.
DjT listened to the popular Dr. for too long. That’s over......”I’m not cowering with a damn mask”...”open the churches.”
He could only take so much. Fauxi is adept at politics...he takes all sides.
We beat Hitler but will lose to Fauci?
They aren’t mutually exclusive! :)
So, this Is Fauchi saying I fu*ked up
(Sarcasm, of course)
Dr. Fauci can you tell me what the speed limit should be on the roads in our state?
Please Dr. Fauci, because you are the expert not just on the risk of injury at various speeds, but also on the best public policy for speed limits in consideration of all factors, not just medical ones, right?
In fact, maybe we need to lock down all our roads until Dr. Fauci tells us what the right speed limit should be.
Can someone in the media please get Dr. Fauci to tell us what to do before disaster ensues our roads, because we acted without his advice?
Breaking news: Dr. Fauci says the speed limit should be ...
So seriously now, can someone explain to me how that would be any less ridiculous?
“he sure jumped on that bandwagon”
I think PDJT had a come-to-Jesus talk with him. Change your tune or I’ll expose all of your shady dealings for the last 30 years, and start criminal investigations.
