Conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci

Environmental & Science Education
Edward Hessler

Included in the Washington Post's publicly accessible series on the coronavirus is a transcript of a wise conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci who directs the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

 Fauci comments on the meaning of corona virus infection waves (he thinks we are still in the first wave), models (skeptical but finds them helpful "in some respects"), state, mayoral, community leadership, the limitations of general statements rather than specific statements, the risk of congregations of large crowds (obviously the risk increases) and finally our obligations to one another, "we are in this all together. We're not just separate individual components. We're in this together."

The conversation was edited and reported by Washington Post reporter Allie Caren.
