Recently when talking to CNN’s Jim Sciutto, Dr Anthony Fauci (Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases) said that social distancing measures appeared to be working, but he also stressed that the coronavirus pandemic is still a very serious situation.

Facui also cautioned that the US hasn’t seen a turnaround yet in cases, but is hopeful that efforts to push the mitigation is possibly slowing the rate.

What we’re starting to see right now is just the inklings. And I don’t want to put too much stock on it, because you don’t want to get overconfident, you just want to keep pushing in what you’re doing. You’re starting to see that the daily increases are not in that steep incline, they’re starting to be able to possibly flatten out
