[The nation's top infectious disease doctor Dr. Anthony] Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, called Covid-19 a "pandemic of historic proportions." "I think we can't deny that fact," he said during a Georgetown University Global Health Initiative webinar. Fauci compared the current crisis to the 1918 influenza pandemic that killed more than 50 million people globally and about 675,000 in the US. "That was the mother of all pandemics and truly historic. I hope we don't even approach that with this, but it does have the makings of, the possibility of ... approaching that in seriousness."
