Dr. Anthony Fauci is provided some hope as states across the country begin to reopen amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Fauci said that small gatherings by the Fourth of July weekend are “entirely conceivable.”

The 74-year-old Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and one of the most respected voices during the coronavirus pandemic.

“You know, that’s entirely conceivable and possible,” Fauci said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, via the New York Post. “What the president was saying is that we traditionally have, at the Fourth of July, the kind of barbecue in the backyard, the kind of things that we treasure as Americans, as part of our tradition.

“He was saying we’re going to have that, if we do all the things that he mentioned. If we go beyond that, because we have such a low level of infection, all the better for it. I don’t believe he’s ruling that out, but he’s saying this is at least what we’re going to be able to do by the Fourth of July.”

Let’s hope that proves to be true and we can get some sense of normalcy back this summer.

Fauci, who has advised six presidents, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2008.
