The infectious disease expert made the comments Wednesday during an interview with ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton.

"The Ohios, the Indianas, the Tennessees, the Kentuckys that are starting to have that very early indication that the percent of cases regarding the number of tests that you have, that the percent is starting to go up".

Sadeghi writes that it is inaccurate to claim that Fauci was warning about COVID-19 specifically in 2017, as the disease didn't exist back then. The FDA reports that most virus transmissions are thought to be from person-to-person contact, including between asymptomatic people.

The CDC says in its universal guidance on protective measures against the potentially deadly bug that the best way to prevent getting sick is to avoid being exposed to the virus, listing social distancing, washing hands frequently, disinfecting surfaces, and mask-wearing. But touching your nose, mouth or eyes, can introduce the virus to cells it can invade.

In a note on considerations for mask-wearing, the CDC says "some people may choose to use a face shield when sustained close contact with other people is expected", and as such recommends shields that wrap around the sides of the face and extend below the chin if they don't wear a mask.

Fauci said: "It's a combination of humbling and really embarrassing".
