“I think you’ll probably see a little more of me and my colleagues,” Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task, told CNN’s Global Town Hall Thursday.
“We talk to people of communication, and they realize that we need to get some of this information, especially some of the scientific issues that I care about, so hopefully we can find a lot, get a opportunity to talk to you. “
Fauci’s appearances on TV have been limited in recent weeks as the White House has increased pressure on the country’s governors to open their states of economy from in-house orders intended to combat the spread. of the novel coronavirus. He was one of the leading faces of the administration̵7;s response to the outbreak.
He said he was still an active part of the task force, even though he didn’t have time on TV. The scientists on the panel have a subgroup and they meet regularly behind the scenes, he said.
The task force’s focus is “moving somewhat” to look at the country’s opening and the economic impact of the closure, “but that is not about reducing scientific issues,” Fauci said.
Fauci also said he was outside this Memorial Day weekend.
“I plan to go out for a nice walk and walk on Memorial Day, and I’ll do it with a mask,” he said.
But he said it’s important for people to pay attention to the number of infections in their area and to act accordingly.
For example, Washington, D.C. still has a growing number of infections. “There’s no way I could get a haircut,” Fauci said.
But Fauci said at the end of Memorial Day weekend, people should go outside. “Get out, put on a mask,” he advised.
“Stay six feet away from anyone you see,” he added “Run, walk, go fishing, as long as you’re not in a crowd.”
