U.S. may see 'surge upon surge' in coronavirus cases: Fauci

The nation’s top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the U.S. may see “surge upon a surge” of the coronavirus cases after Thanksgiving.

He told ABC’s “This Week” that the level of infection in the U.S. would not “all of a sudden turn around.”

“So clearly in the next few weeks, we’re going to have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line … we may see a surge upon a surge,” he said.

Fauci also appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he made similar remarks, adding that it’s “not too late” for people traveling home after Thanksgiving to help curb the virus by wearing masks, staying distant from others and avoiding large groups of people.
