Fauci said it was a complex question, but described some of the contributing factors.
Jordan said Fauci had advocated for "certain businesses to be shut down", arguing that he hadn't "seen one hair stylist who, between haircuts, goes out and attacks police or sets something on fire, but we've seen all kinds of that stuff during protests and we know the protests actually increased the spread of the virus".
Dr. Fauci also noted that some states followed the suggested guidelines to reopen, while others didn't.
Democrats say they intend to examine the "urgent need for a national comprehensive plan" to address the pandemic, according to a news release sent by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, which is chaired by House Majority Whip James Clyburn.
"Yes, sir, I was", Fauci answered.
Fauci said his optimism is based on results from earlier phases of the Moderna trial that "clearly showed that individuals who were vaccinated mounted a neutralizing antibody response that was at least comparable, and in many respects, than what we see in convalescent [blood] serum". It probably will be phased in.
Trump tweeted as a House oversight committee heard from the nation's top health officials on the federal response to coronavirus. "That's not my position", Dr. Fauci said. He said that since Indian private sector is the leading manufacturer of vaccines in the world, the manufacturing capabilities will emerge to be important with an effective COVID-19 vaccine, The Indian Express reported.
Trump tweeted: "Somebody please tell Congressman Clyburn, who doesn't have a clue, that the chart he put up indicating more CASES for the USA than Europe, is because we do MUCH MORE testing than any other country in the World". "Because claims of having a vaccine, ready to distribute before you do testing, I think, is problematic, at best". Should we try to limit the protest?"Jordan asked". "You made comments on dating, baseball, and everything you can imagine". I'm telling you what is the danger, and you can make your own conclusion about that.
