Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director, said Americans should never shake hands again, in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other diseases.
Speaking about the eventual return to normal life, Dr. Fauci said: "When you gradually come back, you don't jump into it with both feet.
You say what are the things you could still do and still approach normal.
The other is you don't ever shake anybody's hands.".
"I don't think we should ever shake hands ever again, to be honest with you.
Not only would it be good to prevent coronavirus disease, it probably would decrease instances of influenza dramatically in this country.".
He also warned that he expected the novel coronavirus death toll to peak in a couple of weeks. »
