Dr. Fauci: I Am ‘Quite Concerned’ About What We’re Seeing Evolve Right Now in Florida, Texas, Calif. and Arizona

‘More than 50% of the new infections are in those areas where we’re seeing surges’


FAUCI: "Thank you very much for that question, Senator Murray. I am also quite concerned about what we’re seeing evolve right now in several of the states. As you know, in four of the states, Florida, Texas, California and Arizona, more than 50% of the new infections are in those areas where we’re seeing surges. The things we need to do, and I think you alluded in your question to me, we’ve got to make sure that when states try and open again, they need to follow the guidelines that have been very carefully laid out with regard to checkpoints. What we’ve seen in several states are different iterations of that, perhaps maybe in some going too quickly and skipping over some of the checkpoints, but even in states in which the leadership in the form of the governors and the mayors did it right with the right recommendations.”
