Dr Fauci warns we may never get 'back to normal' because there will always be a 'threat' of coronavirus as U.S. death toll reaches 11,000 and infections hit almost 370,000 - nine days before the projected peak

The world will never return to what was considered 'normal' before the novel coronavirus emerged four months ago, Dr Anthony Fauci predicted at Monday's White House briefing
The world will never return to what was considered 'normal' before the novel coronavirus emerged four months ago, Dr Anthony Fauci says, as the national COVID-19 death toll hits 11,000. 

Across the nation, as of Monday evening, there are over 368,254 cases of the virus with hotspots in New York, Michigan and Louisiana. 

The US is now barreling towards the infection's projected peak day on April 16 when experts predict there will be over 3,000 deaths in 24 hours.



Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, made the sombre prediction at Monday's White House press briefing after a reporter asked whether the US will be able to 'get back to normal' prior to the introduction of a universal vaccine for COVID-19.  

'If "back to normal" means acting like there never was a coronavirus problem, I don't think that's going to happen until we do have a situation where you can completely protect the population [with a vaccine],' Fauci said before clarifying his previous use of the phrase.
