If Dr. Anthony Fauci says it, you'd be smart to listen. In his briefings to Congress, Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike have praised the government's top infectious disease expert as a straight-shooter.

Fauci has been the public's go-to expert in health crises for more than 30 years, from HIV, to SARS, MERS, and Ebola. Now it's the coronavirus pandemic. Fauci uses a metaphor from one of the fastest-moving sports to describe his strategy on the outbreak.

He says: “You skate not to where the puck is, but to where the puck is going to be."
