Anthony Fauci (USA, NIAID Director):
"We are still knee-deep in the first wave of this. And I would say, this would not be considered a wave. It was a surge, or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline"; "The European Union as an entity, it went up and then came down to baseline"; "Now they're having little blips, as you might expect, as they try to reopen. We went up, never came down to baseline, and now it's surging back up. So it's a serious situation that we have to address immediately".
Imran Ahmed (UK, CCDH chief executive):
"Our hope for a return to normal life rests with scientists developing a successful vaccine for coronavirus"; "But social media companies’ irresponsible decision to continue to publish anti-vaccine propaganda means a vaccine may not be effective in containing the virus. The price for their greed is a cost paid in lives."
