The United States top infectious disease expert said on April 10 that by November, the United States could return to a “degree of normality.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease, made the comment last week when he was asked by MSNBC host Brian Williams whether he believes voters in all 50 U.S. states should be able to vote by mail in the November elections, due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.
“I would hope that by November we would have things under such control that we could have a real degree of normality. Thats my interest and my job as a public health person,” Fauci said, adding that it is not his area of expertise.
Fauci meanwhile told CNNs “State of the Union” he “cant guarantee” that it will be safe for Americans to vote in person on Election Day, Nov. 3.
His comments come as Democrats and Republicans clash over the possibility of expanding mail-in voting.
President Donald Trump has publicly criticized voting by mail, saying it paves the way for potential voter fraud.
“Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to statewide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it,” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday.“Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesnt work out well for Republicans.”
“Absentee Ballots are a great way to vote for the many senior citizens, military, and others who cant get to the polls on Election Day,” he added. “These ballots are very different from 100% Mail-In Voting, which is RIPE for FRAUD, and shouldnt be allowed!”
Democrats, meanwhile, have cited concerns about the risk to public health that would come with in-person voting.
“We have a different value system about what voting means to a democracy,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday. “Clearly, we want to remove all obstacles to participation.”
The outbreak of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, a type of coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19, in the United States has led to the rescheduling of primaries in at least a dozen states across the nation, including New York and New Jersey.
