Comments by Dr. Anthony Fauci Washington Post Take the issue with President Donald Trump’s frequent argument that the country is “turning around” on the virus.

Fauzi said the U.S. could not “be kept worse” to prevent a growing number of cases as more people congregate indoors during the cold fall and winter months. He says the United States needs to make a “sudden change” in public health.

Speaking about the risks, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said he believes it is “being taken seriously from a public health perspective” and that Trump “is looking at it from a different angle.” Fawzi, who is in the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said the vision was “to reopen the economy and the country.”

White House spokesman Judd Deer said Trump would always put the welfare of the people first and that Fauzi was determined to “play politics” ahead of Tuesday’s election. Fauzi says he has not publicly endorsed any political candidate in his decades of public service.
