Federal mandate for coronavirus vaccine not expected, Anthony Fauci says

56 Florida hospital ICUs have hit capacity

Don't ban China. And I did it anyway.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert said that the handling of coronavirus in the U.S.is "really not good", warning that more serious measures are needed to lower the recent rise in the infection rate.

The President added: 'A lot of mistakes were made, a lot of mistakes. We also know that simple cloth coverings that many people have can work as well as a mask in many cases...

On Thursday, Florida reported accurate documentation increase of 120 deaths and California had 136 new fatalities, not not even close to a record of 149 set the previous day.

On Tuesday federal officials said they would offer free COVID-19 testing to people without symptoms to stem a surge of cases in three southern hotspots. Fauci said don't wear masks and now he says wear them.

"So we've done a good job".

Fauci went on to explain how the New York City metropolitan area was badly hit earlier by the pandemic and is doing well now - with declining cases, hospitalizations and deaths - compared to other regions of the United States.

Fauci then continued to talk about the government's way of suppress the deadly virus.

Anthony Fauci, director of the Nationwide Institute of Allergy and Infectious Conditions, listens during a Senate Health, Education and learning, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing in Washington, DC, on June 30.

He said the first candidate will be ready for trials to see if its effective against the disease by the end of this month.

His comments come after the White House repeatedly pointed to the falling U.S. mortality rate as proof of a productive response despite states across the country grappling with record-breaking spikes in the virus.

While Fauci did not publicly comment on the contradiction between his comments and that of the president, he said he thinks "any politicization of anything that's a public health matter has negative consequences, and that's the reason why we try as best as we cannot to let political issues get involved".
