200K in US could die from COVID-19 - Fauci

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci warned on Sunday that many more thousands of Americans could die from the coronavirus. "Hopefully we can limit this to 100,000-200,000 deaths," he noted.

Speaking to CNN, Fauci added that millions in the country could contract the disease. However, the infection disease expert also said he agreed with US President Donald Trump that issuing a travel advisory for the three most affected states, New York New Jersey and Connecticut, was a better choice than putting them on lockdown.

The US has reported over 123,000 confirmed coronavirus infections and overtook China in the number of cases earlier in the week. The COVID-19 death toll in the US currently stands at 2,229.
