Coronavirus: Fauci supports Canada border closure, calls US COVID-19 numbers “unacceptably high”

Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Fauci supports Canada border closure, calls US COVID-19 numbers “unacceptably high”” – below is their description.

Keeping the Canada and United Stated border closed will help contain the spread of coronavirus, as long as numbers between the two nations remains at a huge disparity, Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. government official on infectious diseases, said in an interview with Global News. The coronavirus numbers in the U.S. are “unacceptably high” heading into the fall, Fauci said on Friday. Because of the huge gap in numbers between the neighboring countries, Fauci said he supports the border closure, as “it does have a positive effect on keeping a lid on things.” Fauci, who is also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the number of coronavirus-related deaths in the U.S. is “quite high.” He added he worries that going into the fall, when the weather cools off and people start crowding inside, countries will see a spike in numbers.
