Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, declared that the coronavirus would be much "worse" if President Trump didn't have travel bans in place on China and Iran.
“I believe we would be in a worse position,” Fauci told the House Oversight and Reform Committee, "Whenever you look at the history of outbreaks, what you see now in an un-contained way and although we are containing it in some respects, we keep getting people coming into the country that are travel-related, we’ve seen that in many of the states that are now involved."
"We will see more cases and things will get worse than they are right now. How much worse they get will depend on our ability to do two things: To contain the influx of people who are infected coming from the outsideand the ability to contain and mitigate within our own country," Fauci continued.
"Bottom line, it’s going to get worse," he added.
While the nation’s leading medical experts say travel bans have been immensely effective in stopping the spread of the coronavirus, House and Senate Democrats are looking to stop travel bans with newly introduced legislation.
As Breitbart News reported, 220 House Democrats have signed onto a plan to effectively end Trump’s ability to implement travel bans to protect American citizens. Under the Democrats’ “No Ban Act,” travelers directly from Wuhan would have been allowed to continue entering the U.S. while Trump consulted with Congress on a travel ban.
The number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. has hit 1,107 nationwide, including 32 deaths.
