Dr. Fauci was notably absent from today's presser and has been for a few days. I don't want medical advice from Mike Pence, the man who helped to stoke an HIV epidemic in Indiana...— Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) March 19, 2020

Mike Pence is not a Doctor.
Mike Pence is not a scientist.
Mike Pence is not a medical expert.
Mike Pence is a science denying bible thumping lunatic who was tasked to cover up and suppress info to coddle an orange colored ego.

The leading expert said that the United States was yet in the “escalation phase” and that their effectiveness in combating the novel Coronavirus depends upon how distant people are from one another. Moreover, he brought attention to the fact that people’s exposure towards teenagers and young adults should also be less.

Dr Anthony Fauci revealed that he hoped Coronavirus’s response to social distancing will be similar to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which belongs to the same family. However, he also warned that the former’s mode of transmission is different and has not been precisely discovered to date. When Zuckerberg questioned his upcoming projections, Dr Fauci expounded that they are in the escalation phase and the virus’s impact is dependent on the people’s “containment and mitigation”.
In the 40 minutes’ interview, Facebook skilfully brought trusted information from the health authorities to its users. To assist in combating the fabricated details, Zuckerberg has taken a big step and announced about putting the latest updates about COVID-19 at the top of the news feeds of its users. Moreover, Coronavirus Information Centre, built-in collaboration with big health organisations, focusses on providing real-time updates and tips from authorities to stay safe and healthy.
