Leading American infectious disease leader Anthony Fauci advised U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on a strategy to combat the COVID-19 epidemic.
According to Fauci, who was insulted by incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump by questioning his professional competence, bars and restaurants must be closed to reduce the incidence of COVID-19 in the country. This was reported by the ABC TV channel.
At the same time, Fauci recommends opening schools, because, according to him, the closure of educational institutions will not help to stop the spread of the epidemic.
The expert stressed that the best way to protect children from COVID-19 is to follow quarantine rules, wear a mask and keep social distance.
“No matter who you are or where you are – when you have crowded places, especially in rooms where people do not wear masks, it is a significant risk of infection and spread,” said Fauci.
