Anthony S. Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, said he’s hopeful that Americans will begin hearing directly from him and Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, on a more regular basis. Since Trump ended his daily briefings, the public hasn’t heard nearly as frequently from Fauci or Birx.

"I think you’re probably going to be seeing a little bit more of me & my colleagues,” Fauci told CNN. “They realize we need to get some of this information out … Hopefully you’ll be seeing more of us.”

More than 93,000 people have died in the U.S. from covid-19, according to state health departments and tracking by The Washington Post. There have been more than 5 million confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide, including more than 1.5 million in the United States.
