Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a key member of the White House coronavirus task force, said on Wednesday that he doesn't think Americans should ever shake hands again.
"When you gradually come back, you don't jump into it with both feet. You say, what are the things you could still do and still approach normal? One of them is absolute compulsive hand-washing. The other is you don't ever shake anybody's hands," Fauci said.
"I don't think we should ever shake hands ever again, to be honest with you. Not only would it be good to prevent coronavirus disease; it probably would decrease instances of influenza dramatically in this country," he continued, and added that he hopes theres a "light at the end of the tunnel".
I think he's crazy if he really thinks people will stop shaking hands just because he said so.
The Hill reports:
The NIAID head said Wednesday morning on Fox News that he thinks the number of U.S. deaths from the virus will be lower than initially predicted. Last week, Fauci and other members of the task force had signaled that anywhere between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans could die from the illness, even if social distancing was successful.

Conservative News Reporter Booted from White House Briefing
We've been seeing it for years now; liberal news outlets sending their "journalists" to talk trash to President Trump during press conferences. They're not exactly known for their journalism skills and truthfulness.
We've even seen some liberal reporters kicked out of pressers for things they've said or done, but this time it actually happened to a conservative reporter from one of the most reputable conservative news outlets.
UNBELIEVABLE! Guess Who Was Just Released From Prison to Protect Him From Coronavirus
A man who has been locked away behind bars for raping a child is being released after a Massachusetts Superior Court Judge decided that there was too much of a risk of him catching the coronavirus and they want to make sure he's safe.
This makes absolutely no sense to me. Why would they let someone out of jail - a place where they are safer from the virus than elsewhere - to keep him safe from catching the virus. It's a disease transmitted by people, if released from prison, he's just going to be around more people who have been around more people as well and therefore his odds of getting the virus is far greater.
Woman Arrested and Thrown In Jail Cell with Dozens of Women During Pandemic for Non-Crime
A New York City woman and her boyfriend were both arrested this previous weekend for the biggest crime of our time, "failing to maintain social distancing'.
I get it, we're supposed to keep apart from one another, but at this point it's not a crime, instead this is martial law where they can decide on a whim what to label as a crime.
