Risk of coronavirus in U.S. is ‘minuscule’ NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci says

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be testing for the coronavirus in people in five major cities who show up at clinics with flu symptoms but are negative for the seasonal varieties.

If that testing shows the virus has slipped into the country in places federal officials don’t know about, “we’ve got a problem,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told USA TODAY’s editorial board Monday.

Short of that, Fauci says skip the masks unless you are contagious, don’t worry about catching anything from Chinese products and certainly don’t avoid Chinese people or restaurants.  

“Whenever you have the threat of a transmissible infection, there are varying degrees from understandable to outlandish extrapolations of fear,” said Fauci. 

Government agencies, including Fauci’s own at the National Institutes of Health, are getting inundated with calls and emails from nervous people, just as they were during the Ebola and SARS scares.
