Anthony Fauci says social distancing is ‘dampening’ coronavirus spread

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert on the White House task force, said mitigation efforts like social distancing are having a “dampening” effect on the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.

“If you look now, we’re starting to see glimmers that that is actually having some dampening effect,” he said Tuesday on CNN, but cautioned that the public has to continue to take the measures seriously.
