The President added, “Many mistakes have been made, many mistakes.
“Let me make a comment, we test like no one has ever tested before. And when we test, the more you test, the more cases you find. ‘
On Thursday, Florida reported a record increase in 120 deaths, and California had 136 new fatalities, not far from a record 149 set the previous day.
Texas reported 105 new deaths – a new high in one day – and Governor Greg Abbott says the numbers may be even worse next week.
Dr. Fauci turned down the federal government’s response to Covid-19 yesterday.
During an interview with FiveThirtyEightFauci said of the country, “I don’t think you can say we’re doing great.”
Then he explained what he meant by that statement: “Well, let me say there are parts of the United States like where you live now [in New York]who are doing very well, that you have experienced something very bad and that you are in control
“And you have a governor and a mayor in the city who understand what it means to follow the gate guidelines: phase one, phase two, phase three. So you’re doing well, “said Fauci, referring to Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“Other cities are doing well,” Fauci continued. “But if you compare us as a country with other countries, I don’t think you can say that we are doing well. I mean, we just aren’t. ‘
Fauci then spoke about the government’s approach to suppressing the deadly virus.
The U.S. has reported more than 3.1 million cases in total and more than 133,000 deaths from the virus
“We live, I mean, you have to wear a blindfold and cover your ears to think that we are not living in a very divisive society now, from a political point of view,” Fauci admitted.
“So I think you should assume that if there wasn’t such a division, we would have a more coordinated approach.”
On Monday, Fauci said in a live stream on Twitter that ‘the current state is really not good’.
“We are still knee deep in the first wave of COVID-19 infections,” he said.
His statements came one day when the US saw 60,565 new daily cases.
Thursday was the second day in a row that the number of infections has increased by at least 60,000, according to a Reuters note.
For the third day in a row, U.S. deaths rose by more than 800, the highest level since early June, according to the census.
