Tuesday/ the voice of reason

Dr Fauci testified before Congress today, via videolink. He urged caution (as always), and said there would be no vaccine by the start of the school year in September.

Just today California State University, the nation’s largest four-year public university system, announced the cancellation of in-person classes for the fall semester. That system comprises 23 campuses, with more than 480,000 students!

Dr Anthony S. Fauci (79) is a physician and immunologist who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. He has lived through the start of the terrible HIV/ AIDS pandemic (first cases in 1981, and not over by a long shot: 770,000 deaths world-wide in 2018), the 2003 SARS outbreak, the 2009 Swine Flu, the 2014 Ebola outbreak, and now Covid-19. It was refreshing to see him testify without Trump (literally) breathing down his neck at Coronavirus Task Force briefings.
