(HorizonPost.com) – The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States surged during the last month of 2020 and is on a trajectory to continue the trend into 2021. In response, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) have reinstated some of their draconian lockdown orders. The potential exists for these to become nationwide decrees.
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, the CDC’s infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has said an edict to that effect coming out of Washington DC is “not out of the question.”
On MTP, Fauci says "locking down is something that you might have to do but you want to avoid." He says we "may have to have…some form of lockdown" in some parts of a state, a la California, or "specific regions of the country." But "we hope we don't have to do it countrywide."

Fauci’s prediction is based on the possibility that Joe Biden might eventually be sworn in as President of the United States. Biden has already signaled his willingness to mandate strict impositions on the American people.
