Dr. Fauci: “I Don’t Understand” Why The Entire Country Isn’t Under ‘Stay At Home’ Orders

During an interview with CNN Thursday night, Dr. Anthony Fauci said all Americans should be under a ‘stay at home’ order and the entire country should be operating via the same guidelines in terms of self-isolating in order to best bring the coronavirus to heel.

“I don’t understand why that’s not happening,” said Fauci, a member of the White House COVID-19 Task Force. “As you said, the tension between federally mandated versus states’ rights to do what they want is something I don’t want to get into. But if you look at what is going on in this country, I do not understand why we are not doing that. We really should be.”

As of today, there has not been a federally mandated order for the entire country regarding the ongoing coronavirus threat.

Currently, 39 states and Washington, D.C., are under stay-at-home orders.

Eleven states – all red states –  have not issued statewide orders.

Six states have regions with local lockdowns – Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming.

But it’s a total free for all in Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
