Now is no time to back off: Top U.S. infectious disease expert

Washington: The top U.S. infectious disease expert warned on Friday that even though hard-hit spots like New York are showing positive results in the battle against coronavirus, it is too early to relax restrictions on Americans.

“What we’re seeing right now is favorable signs,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an interview on CNN.

“We would want to see a clear indication that you were very, very clearly and strongly going in the right direction, because the one thing you don’t want to do is you don’t want to get out there prematurely and then wind up back in the same situation.

“Now is no time to back off.”
