But the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has been warning Americans about the risk of further spread of the virus.

Fauci said "anti-science bias" in the country can be problematic.

Fauci defended the shutdown policies in the United States and around the world during the pandemic as having saved "millions of lives.".
