Dr. Fauci advice

An edited summary of Dr. Fauci's advice from the NYT interview:

Dr. Fauci, a straight shooter, with no conflicts of interest — political or financial — at 79, no big career ambition. So I asked him how Americans might live in the next six nine months.

Are a few things you think a Biden administration should do on Day 1?

were some states in some regions of the country that didn’t learn the lessons when New York City and other big cities got . Fundamental public health measures: simple things like uniform wearing of masks, keeping physical distance, avoiding crowds (particularly indoors), doing things outdoors as much as possible, and washing hands frequently, not shutting down the country. You can still have an economic recovery, if you just do those simple things.

Do you think we need a national policy like a national mask mandate?

The current administration has left Covid-19 management the states.
I think should be universal wearing of masks. If we can accomplish that with local mayors, governors, local authorities, fine. If not, we should seriously consider national. The reason that I shy away from making a strong recommendation is that mandates from the national level down can cause push back from people do not like be told what to do.

People often think of shutdowns as binary. You’re open or you’re shut. Often, when you answer questions about how to live, you start with, ‘Well, I’m in a high-risk group….”

The reason I answer with some degree of trepidation is because the people own businesses get very upset with me. are some essential businesses that you want keep open, like grocery stores, supermarkets and gas stations.

We’re heading into the winter. You could social distance in a restaurant or in an indoor gathering. But would you feel OK being in without a mask?

With so many infections now, I would feel quite uncomfortable even being in a restaurant, particularly if it was at full capacity.

I see you’ve been getting your hair cut. What do you think about hair salons?

I used get a haircut every five weeks. I get a haircut every weeks now. With a mask on me and a mask on the person cutting my hair.


It depends on your individual situation. If you are at high risk, don’t travel anywhere. If you must go, drive your own car, by yourself. Don’t get on a crowded subway, a crowded bus, or fly in an airplane. If you’re a 25-year-old with no underlying medical conditions, that’s much different.


Bars are a real big problem. If you at some outbreaks we’ve seen, ’s when people go into crowded bars. I used to like to sit at a bar and grab a hamburger and a beer. But when you’re at a bar, people are leaning over your shoulder, people are right next to each other. It’s fun and social. So I would to clamp down on bars for the time being.

Some airlines and some states are telling people you to get a coronavirus test before you get on the plane or visit another state. Does that make sense medically?

If you’re negative when you get on the plane — except in the rare circumstance that you’re in that little incubation window before you turn positive — that’s a good thing.
If you had a national plan for testing, what would it be?
Surveillance testing. Literally flooding the system with tests. Getting a home test that you could do yourself, that’s highly sensitive and highly specific. And you know why that would be terrific? Because if you decided to have a small gathering with your mother-in-law and father-in-law and a couple of . The test isn’t 0 percent. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. The risk, if all are tested before you gather for dinner, dramatically decreases.

are a number of vaccine candidates that are promising. But ’s also a lot of skepticism. Is OK take a vaccine? And which one?

’s easy when you have vaccines that are 95 percent effective. Can’t get much better than that. I think what people need appreciate is the process. The company looks at the data. I look at the data. Then the company gives the data the F.D.A. The F.D.A. career scientists are really independent. Then ’s another independent group, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee. The F.D.A. commissioner vowed he will follow the opinions of F.D.A. career scientists and the advisory board.

When do you think we’ll be able throw our masks away?

I think that we’re going have some degree of public health measures like masks with the vaccine for a considerable period of time. But we’ll start approaching normal — if the overwhelming majority of people get vaccinated — as we get into the third or fourth quarter of 2021.
