The US is collaborating with health authorities and scientists from across the world to try to manage the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday.
Fauci said that he and his colleagues from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention join a weekly call sponsored by the World Health Organization to share insights.
“Essentially, the health authorities and scientists from every country in the world, practically, that gets involved with Covid-19,” Fauci said during a town hall with Healthline.com.
There are scientific collaborations with colleagues in Europe, the European Union, Australia, Canada and Mexico, he said. Plus drugs and vaccines are being tested in South Africa, Brazil, Chile and Peru.
“So there’s an awful lot of international activity going on,” he said. “You don’t hear about that very much in the lay press, but it really is going on rather intensively.”
