Everyday we are bombarded with new information regarding the widespread COVID-19 coronavirus, and it changes from hour to hour. The only proven measure, which at this point is the norm in our society, remains to be social distancing. As we all refrain from being within each other's presence it's clear that even after this pandemic comes to an end none of our lives will ever be the same again. This is the new reality and it's a very scary time.

The current dude in the White House, Donald Trump, attempts to inform the American people on a daily basis about COVID-19 but his briefings are sometimes so erratic it becomes difficult to absorb his words without a sense of doom and dread. Especially when taking into consideration the fact that while the rest of the world is hunkering down for a long battle through a monsoon Trump would rather face the storm head on with a dollar store umbrella, completely ignoring the warnings of those who have been battling COVID-19 for months.

Especially after revealing he wants to have the country back in business by Easter Sunday, which seems highly unlikely. One coronavirus advisor on the front lines of the pandemic is Dr. Anthony Fauci, and he is assisting Trump with his efforts in curtailing the disease. But now, in an attempt to step out of the rhetoric surrounding the White House, Dr. Fauci sat down with beloved Golden State Warrior point guard Steph Curry to discuss exactly what's going on with COVID-19 right now.

Hollywood Life reports during an Instagram Live interview Curry, after reminding Dr. Fauci that we're going into week three of the self quarantine, asked Fauci when did he suspect the pandemic would be coming to an end. Dr. Fauci was very honest with is response admitting that there's hope on the horizon, yet we still have a long way to go before it's all said and done.

“We’ve seen that in China; it went up and down. They’re starting to get back to normal life. Korea is starting to come back down. Europe, particularly Italy, is still in a terrible situation. The United States is a big country, and we have so many different regions."

"New York City is having a terrible time, but there are places [in the US] that are doing quite well. We can start thinking about getting back to some degree of normality when the country, as a whole, has turned the corner. Then, you can pinpoint cases much more easily instead of getting overwhelmed.”

Hopefully everyone is starting to understand exactly how severe the situation is. But one thing is certain, we all must remain vigilant and do our part to stop the spread.
