Fauci on Texas Numbers Dropping Despite No Mask Mandate: ‘I’m Not Really Sure’

‘It can be confusing, because you may see a lag and a delay’


FAUCI: "Yeah, you know, it can be confusing because you may see a lag and a delay, because often you have to wait a few weeks before you see the effect of what you’re doing right now. You know, there are a lot of things that go into that. When you say that they’ve had a lot of activity on the outside like ball games, I’m not really quite sure. It could be they’re doing things outdoors. It’s very difficult to just one-on-one compare that. You just have to see in the long range. I hope they continue to tick down. If they do, that would be great. But there’s always the concern, when you pull back on methods, particularly things like indoor dining and bars that are crowded, you can see a delay and then all of a sudden tick right back up. We’ve been fooled before by situations where people begin to open back up, nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, several week later, things start exploding on you. So we’ve got to be careful we don’t prematurely judge that."
