Fauci Says Lockdown Will Continue Until There Are No “New Cases” Of COVID-19

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci says that the United States will not come out of lockdown until there are no “new cases” of coronavirus, prompting some to question precisely how long that will be.

During yesterday’s White House briefing, Fauci, who has become the face of America’s response to the coronavirus, was asked by a reporter whether social distancing measures will be imposed until there is a drug or vaccine to treat COVID-19.

“I think if we get to the part of the curve that Dr. Birx showed yesterday when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing,” Fauci said.

“The one thing we hopefully would have in place, and I believe we will have in place, is a much more robust system to be able to identify someone who was infected, isolate them and then do contact tracing,” he added.

The prospect of there ever being zero new coronavirus cases appears to be a very long way off, leading some to question if Fauci was asking Americans to adopt social distancing indefinitely, or at least until a vaccine is available.

“Fauci said that we can start to “relax” social distancing once there are “no new cases, no deaths.” Is it just me or is that completely batshit insane?” asked Matt Walsh. “That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?”

“No kidding. We would need to assume that any vaccine would be immediately available, 100% effective, 100% of the population has access to it, and 100% of the population takes it,” commented another respondent.

“Sounds like they’ll eventually have to keep us “temporarily” locked in our homes. No cars on the road. No people at stores or gas stations, and the national guard will start leaving a box of food on our doorsteps every 3 days. And everyone will be ok with it,” added another.

Italy is already experiencing looting and civil unrest as a result of lockdown measures.

Experts have suggested that this could be a massive problem everywhere if authorities attempt to quarantine entire countries for too long.

  1. Click bate. This title is not what the doctor said. Quarantine until new cases are -0- is ridiculous and impractical. Just another example of poor journalism and despicable reporting.

  2. B.S. if we listen to you this country will be at WAR when all the people have nothing to get,
    stores will be looted…. this crap is nothing but crap, there are more people that died this year alone
    from the regular flu than this virus has done so far.

    its a staged event to destroy this country, and pres trump and the sooner the people start realizing it the better. OPEN THE DOORS AND GET BACK TO BUSINESS… if your a whimpie liberal democrat
    go hide and hopefull we will never see you again… the rest of us… get back on line

  3. Are we beginning to see the foolishness of this? Hillary’s friend directing the nation. Our industries are closed to keep them healthy, yet many are sent to the streets, homeless, and unemployed with millions standing in line back to back or sitting in the unemployment office. Churches are closed, as communism approves, yet our borders may still be open. Please let the people take responsibility to protect themselves. They’ve joined our COVID numbers with the world to intensify the fear. Fear is of the devil, but faith is of God, for you believers.

  4. If there are many people that have a family member in a nursing home or a long term care facility are you telling us that we may not be able to see them or maybe ever see them again? And how about going back to church and worshipping GOD and seeing our friends. Are we ever going to be able to do that again?

  5. Sweden, a “capitalist nation” with a whole bunch of social programs, DID NOT shut down like all the other countries. They are doing JUST FINE!
    They allow their countrymen to think and act like adults, who can understand the ramifications of the severity of each “seasonal event”, which “happens every year”, and “take precautions as needed”.

    There is always going to be a ‘new virus’ coming out of China every year, as long as we keep doing business with China.

    Sweden has lost only a small fraction of it’s population; which they say is “typical for this time of year”.

    Cold, unfeeling? Maybe, but life is fragile, and people do die of the flu. It’s nothing new.

    If you want to survive, do what you must. Don’t depend on a parental government to do everything for you.

  6. Very sad to see such a statement from Fauci. Until now I had great respect for him. The statement should be that the guidelines should continue until we see a very significant reduction in new cases or when a therapeutic treatment can significantly increase the survival rate. It is assumed that some people with significant other health problems would be impossible to save if infected with the virus.

  7. The common cold is a corona virus this virus is nothing more than a bad common cold SARS was nine times worse than this And no one shut the world down over it

    This is a ploy to try to blame the POTUS
    Think about it
    Trump is popular because he created jobs and made unemployment the lowest it’s ever been so now the idiot left is taking jobs away by making a fake pandemic over a cold and
    They did not do it when that monkey obunga was in the house and SARS was a was a worse corona and the masses are the asses!

  8. Lockdown Deadline endng according to Fauci isn’t realistic because you can’t keep the economy on lockdown for long or it will be a disaster for this country. I think by the end of April is a realistic time – have we ever locked down for flu and people keep getting it because they didn’t take flu shots. And life still goes on. People realistically can’t be sequestered this long-we shouldn’t he prisoners to this virus.

  9. So we have the flu or pnumonia or AIDS or who knows when it will ever stop! I’m so sick of just a few people thinking they are the rulers of our lives like Pelosi? Schiff? Schumer? Nader? Bidens? To name a few names! How can just a speck of people be so powerful to destroy the entire global civilization? You would think we the people have the power!

  10. God calls the shots. That’s about like no one ever driving a car again because there are car accidents. I just don’t know. Leaving my fate in God’s hands .

  11. I pray President Trump gets rid of Dr. Fauci, he is a globalist & wants to destroy America, along with the Democrats & the media is falling right into their hands with their lies & propaganda! It’s impossible to never have a new case, as with any other disease. President Trump open up America soon like, in the next 2 weeks, get people back to work & don’t let them destroy what good you have done for this country in the last 3 years. Praying for you & America!
