Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday the United States is in danger of reaching 300,000 deaths from the coronavirus, or "even more than that" unless the country does more.

"We're now at over 250,000 deaths, a quarter of a million deaths," Fauci said in a live stream with The Washington Post. "You could get well over 300,000 and close to even more than that if we don't turn things around."

He added, "I don't want this to be a doomsday statement. It is within our power to not let those numbers happen. The fact is, you don't have to accept those numbers as being inevitable."

Fauci went on to warn against travel and large gatherings ahead of Thanksgiving.

"You might want to reconsider travel plans, and certainly try as best as you can to keep congregate meetings indoors — as innocent and wonderful as they sound — to a minimal number of people, preferably just members of a household," he said. 

"I know this is a difficult thing to do, but we're in a very difficult situation, so it's better to be careful now and look forward to many, many more in the future, then either endangering yourself or a vulnerable member of your family or friends," Fauci said.
