(FOX NEWS) – Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that the U.S. does not have the testing and tracing procedures necessary to safely begin reopening the economy amid the coronavirus crisis, while warning that the White House’s May 1 target may be a “bit” too optimistic.
In an interview, Tuesday with The Associated Press, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and a member of the president’s coronavirus task force, underscored the need for critical testing before returning to normal.
“We have to have something in place that is efficient and that we can rely on, and we’re not there yet,” Fauci said during his interview with The Associated Press.
Fauci’s comments come as President Trump and others in the administration are weighing how to reopen sectors of the nation’s economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
