Ridgewood NJ, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, told CNBC on Friday that extended lockdowns could cause “irreparable” harm and worse health outcomes. Fauci went on,
“We can’t stay locked down for such a considerable period of time that you might do irreparable damage and have unintended consequences, including consequences for health,”
This was followed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin ,who told the Senate earlier this week that there was a risk of “permanent damage” to the economy if states kept strict restrictions in place.
