Fauci: US in bad position amid rise in virus cases

Director of the United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci stated on Wednesday the country was in a "bad position" amid new rises in infections from COVID-19 and subsequent hospitalizations.

"When you look at the country and the heat map color, when you see red dots, [...] all of that puts us in a precarious situation. We should have been way down in baseline and daily cases, and we're not," he told the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Fauci urged the public to wear face masks and keep physical distance as those measures "make a difference."

Fauci recently warned of the seriousness of the situation and predicted the country could see further increase in cases and deaths if the restrictions were not respected.
