U.S. citizens will carry Coronavirus immunity certificates in near future

U.S. citizens will carry Coronavirus immunity certificates in near future

Trying antibody tests to confirm whether someone is infected of coronavirus is one of the major steps that will be taken said federal and state officials.

The antibody tests will be able to be done in parallel with existing tests, which determine if a person now has the coronavirus, according to Fauci.

Fauci said, "Once we turn that corner, hopefully, we'll see a sharp decline, and we'll start thinking about how we can keep it that way and prevent it from resurging, when you start to think about a gradual reentry to something like normal". And again, Jake, it's so hard to make those kinds of predictions, because they always get thrown back at you if it doesn't happen, not by you, but, you know, by any number of people.

So far, 16 states have postponed their primaries as part of widespread lockdown measures to help curb the spread of the coronavirus, the New York Times reported.

According to Johns Hopkins University, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. has now exceeded 500,000. As of April 9, the US was nearing 15,000 deaths from the virus.

It estimated that 60,415 in the U.S. would die of coronavirus by August, assuming social distancing policies continue through May.

Antibody tests are used in other clinical scenarios, said Dr. Colleen Kraft, associate chief medical officer of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

"Within a period of a week or so, we are going to have a relatively large number of tests that are available", Fauci said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, in a conversation with Brian Williams of MSNBC that aired on Friday, said he expects a "real degree of normality, quot; for November".

Whenever restrictions ease, Fauci said, "we know that there will be people who will be getting infected".

Still, Fauci said despite hopes for a reopen, "there is always the possibility, as we get into next fall and the beginning of early winter, that we could see a rebound". Two employees have died, said the union representing workers at the plant. "The kinds of mitigations that we're doing now, the curves that we're seeing flattening and coming down, that's exactly and precisely because of what the American public is doing".

Later, Fauci doubled down when Linebaugh later asked if we'll ever get back to a pre-coronavirus normal. "Nobody has told me with certainty", Trump said, adding, without evidence, that "it will be (at least) a year". "Cause right now, we're in very intense mitigation".

The model, which is considered too optimistic by some states, suggested the United States will reach its peak number of confirmed cases this Easter weekend.

During a briefing later on Sunday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he wants his state, which has been the epicentre of the outbreak in the USA, to open "as soon as possible".

People gather to watch the sun set behind the Throgs Neck Bridge at LIttle Bay Park in the Queens borough of New York City on April 8, 2020.

"As soon as they are validated, they'll be out there for people to use", he said. However, the numbers are significantly lower than were expected.
