Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious-disease expert, warned that the Christmas season could be worse than Thanksgiving for fueling the spread of Covid-19.

“Without substantial mitigation, the middle of January could be a really dark time for us,” Fauci said at a news briefing held by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday.
