The possibility of a ban on travelers to the United States for the last four months, says Fawcett – diversity2 min read
According to Anthony Fawcett, chief infectious disease specialist in the United States, the ban on British travelers entering the United States could last for months.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Fawcett warned that the US travel ban would last for “more than a few weeks”.
The ban could last until a vaccine is ready, but it could be lifted earlier, said Dr Fausi.
Other travel bans from the European Union, China and Brazil are expected to last “months” based on “what’s going on with the infection rate”, Fawcett said.
US travel bans have been imposed on travel from the EU to the UK since mid-March. The China travel ban was imposed in late January and was imposed on Brazil in late May when the lawsuits began.
Foussi, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, predicted that the virus could “progress for several cycles.”
He told the Daily Telegraph, “I would expect to have some degree of true normalcy in a year or so, but I don’t think it’s winter or fall.”
Fawcett said four or five “potential vaccines” in the United States were making significant progress.
“You can never guarantee success with any vaccine,” Fawcett warned. “From what we’ve seen from preliminary results, it’s possible that two or three vaccines could be successful.”
“It will end,” Fawcett said, according to the newspaper. “As stressful and destructive as it will be.”
The United States has recorded more than 296,000 deaths from the coronavirus and more than 41,000 deaths.
