    The leading infectious-disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci says the community “infection baseline” is going in the wrong direction as we head into the cool months of the fall. “You kind of kind of think about the country as a gigantic forest, and when there’s fires in one part of the forest, the other part of the forest is vulnerable,” said the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director. “So if you want to get control of things, you’ve got to be consistent. We’ve got to do things with the ultimate purpose of getting control over the outbreak. And unfortunately, we haven’t done that as well as I think we could.” His comments came during Johns Hopkins University’s Health Policy Forum virtual fireside chat. Confirmed coronavirus cases have been rising again nationwide in the past month. The total positive cases in the United States is close to 8 million according the rerporting by Johns Hopkins University. Deaths from COVID-19 are almost 218,000. Fauci warned that unpcoming holidays may not be a time to think about a multigenerational meal around a crowded, indoor dinner table because it’s a potentially high-risk activity. Fauci said he understands the emotional attachment people have to Thanksgiving and holiday gatherings, but urged everyone to be careful this year. Evaluate the risks, especially with relatives who arrived on airplanes, and protect the elderly and people with underlying conditions. Fauci also addressed the isuse of developing a vaccine. “We’ve got to make sure we stick by and insist on the scientific standards that we put forth before we make a decision about whether something is safe and effective,” said Fauci. “We can’t compromise. The public is trusting us. And if we really want to get into a problem of dissolution of trust, it would be to veer from sticking strictly to the scientific data and the scientific information.”
