[Ed. – Is Fauci referring to the part where Gov. Cuomo crammed elderly coronavirus patients into nursing homes that lacked the ability to handle their needs? Or maybe he’s stoked that the Empire State has the un-flattest COVID-19 curve in America. Confession: this comment alone is deciding my opinion of Dr. Fauci’s professional bona fides – a subject on which my mind was not previously made up.]
Many parts of the United States didn’t do enough to combat the coronavirus — but New York state did, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday.
“We’ve got to do the things that are very clear that we need to do to turn this around,” Fauci told PBS NewsHour. “Remember, we can do it. We know that when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We’ve done it. We’ve done it in New York.”
“New York got hit worse than any place in the world. And they did it correctly by doing the things that you’re talking about,” added Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — and a member of the White House coronavirus task force.
