“I think you’ll probably see a little more than me and my colleagues,” Fauci, a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, told CNN’s global office on Thursday.
“We’ve talked to the communications people and they realize that we need to extract some of this information, especially some scientific issues that I’m primarily responsible for, so hopefully we’ll see more of us, you’ll have the opportunity to talk to you. “
Foki’s appearances on television have been curtailed over the past few weeks as the White House has stepped up pressure on the nation’s governors to open up their economies by staying at home to fight the spread of the new coronavirus. He was one of the most important figures in the administration̵
He said he was still an active part of the task force, despite a lack of time for television. The scientists in the panel have a subgroup and they meet regularly behind the scenes, he said.
The working group’s focus is “shifting somewhat” to look at reopening the country and the economic impact of the shutdown, “but this is not about reducing scientific problems,” Fauci said.
Foci also said he would be out this Remembrance Day weekend.
“I plan to go for nice walks and hikes during Remembrance Day and I will do it carefully with a mask,” he said.
But he said it was important for people to pay attention to the number of infections in their area and act accordingly.
For example, Washington, D.C., still has a growing number of infections. “There’s no way to get a haircut,” Foci said.
But Foci said on Remembrance Day weekend, people should go out. “Come out, wear a mask,” he advised.
“Stay six feet from anyone you see,” he added, “Go for a run, go for a walk, go fishing, as long as you’re not in the crowd.”
