The expected date for the resumption of normal life without COVID-19 will be in 2021, said the White House coronavirus advisor, Anthony Fauci, on Friday.

“If you're talking about getting back to a degree of normality which resembles where we were prior to COVID-19, it's going to be well into 2021, maybe even towards the end of 2021,” said Fauci.

The United States is "tightening the screws" on the crisis, said Donald Trump on Thursday.

“I feel compelled to disagree, however, because if you look at the thing I just mentioned, the statistics are ... worrying,” said Fauci responding to Trump’s comment.

The open rallies that Trump has resumed in preparation for the November 3 election is “completely” risky, added Fauci.

The U.S. has a world record 6.3 million cases of coronavirus and almost 200,000 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins.
