As the White House looks for ways to restore normalcy in parts of the U.S., the government's foremost infection disease expert has a sober prognosis.

Dr. Anthony Fauci tells CNN the country could see 100,000 to 200,000 deaths from the coronavirus and millions of infections.

He says the pandemic is such a “moving target” that it's hard to pin down such a forecast.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump refused to acknowledge the severity of the crisis early on. And she says that has cost lives.
