Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, issued a disturbing warning during a White House briefing Tuesday:

“Americans everywhere need to change the way they live their lives. Right now.

We would like the country to realize that as a nation, we can’t be doing the kinds of things we were doing a few months ago. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a state that has no cases or one case.

If and when the infections will come — and they will come, sorry to say, sad to say — when you’re dealing with an infectious disease… we want to be where the infection is going to be, as well as where it is,Everybody should say, ‘All hands on deck.”

CNN:

The United States now has topped 1,000 as of Tuesday night, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University. 

The coronavirus has led to 31 deaths so far across the country, according to The New York Times.
