  • National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci on Friday praised New York for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying the state did it "correctly."
  • "We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York," Fauci said in an interview on "PBS NewsHour."
  • Gov. Andrew Cuomo instituted some of the strictest reopening requirements in the country, insisting that stay-at-home orders remain in place and many businesses remain closed far longer than other states.

White House health advisor Anthony Fauci has praised New York for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying the state responded "correctly" to bring its outbreak under control.

"We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York," Fauci said in an interview with "PBS NewsHour" that aired Friday evening.

"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," he continued.

New York was once the epicenter of the outbreak in the United States with more than 10,000 new cases a day during its peak outbreak in April. The state has dramatically reduced daily new infections to 776 as of Thursday.
New York is one of nine U.S. states that has the virus under control, according to the tracking project Covid Act Now. Less than 1% of New Yorkers tested for the virus were positive Thursday, down from a high of more than 40%.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo instituted some of the strictest reopening requirements in the country, insisting that stay-at-home orders remain in place and many businesses remain closed far longer than states that are now seeing surges such as Texas and Florida.

More than 400,000 New Yorkers have been infected by the virus since the pandemic began and at least 32,463 people have died in the state.

New York City is scheduled to enter phase 4 on Monday, the next stage of reopening that allows outdoor activities like zoos, outdoor films and gardens. Indoor restaurants, bars, museums, and malls will remain closed, Cuomo said Friday.

"I'm so proud of what New Yorkers have done. But we must continue to be on alert," Cuomo tweeted.

Cuomo has warned of a potential second wave of the coronavirus, as dozens of states around the country grapple with a spike in the number of confirmed coronavirus infections after reopening rapidly in the spring. Last Sunday, Florida reported more than 15,000 new infections, more than New York during the peak of its outbreak.

In his comments Friday, Fauci addressed the surges around the country, urging people to wear masks and pushing for the closure of bars to limit the spread of the virus.

"Stay away from crowds. Close the bars," Fauci said. "You appeal to the people in the local areas, close those bars. They are seriously the — one of the major reasons why we're seeing [the surges]."

"And I think, if we do that for a couple of weeks in a row," he continued, "I think we're going to see a turnaround, because we know that that works."

The coronavirus outbreak has spread worldwide, with more than 14 million confirmed cases and over 597,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The U.S. has had more than 3.6 million cases and at least 139,302 deaths, according to the latest tallies, more than any other country.

Yeah Cuomo sure as shit did a bang up job and did it right.  

Sending those OLD people to their deaths back to the nursing homes that were not equipped to handle them.

And Fauci thinks this is a good idea?

Hey, Fausi, how would you feel if it were YOUR parents in one of those nursing homes?   Still give Cuomo a back slap and a great job?

Fauci was saying in late january that covid was nothing we should worry about. At the end of february fauci said we should not change our habits. This is the guy trump was listening to.
liberals are fond if saying trump ignored the experts blahblahblah, trump handled this wrong blahblahblah. No, trump followed fauci’s advice.

Of course the infection rate is dropping, when antibody testing is showing 25% of the population of NYC is already immune and most people see and are in contact with the same people, corvid19 is having a hard time finding new hosts to infect as NYC is moving towards herd immunity, so Cuomo's screw up maybe the right way to do it.

Yup,

NY's that could fled to Florida and south spreading it with them. Those morons definitely need to be thanked.

Cuomo killed off the most susceptible to the virus when he ordered retirement homes that could not handle it medically to accept those that were infected.

Don't worry, between the protests, and NY's fleeing back from their hiding spots in Florida and the south; they will see another spike. 

If NY did such a great job why is it still the second highest per 100,000 people in the US for deaths from Covid-19?

In fact the top 6 states are east coast Democratic strongholds. There is a record those Democratic bastions of stupidity on the east coast can be proud of.

Don't like that stat. How about this one, NY is #1 with a bullet for deaths from Covid 19. With twice as many deaths as the next closest east coast state.

Damn those blasted facts! In fact the top 7 states for total deaths are run by Democrats!

Here's a hint.  That is an impossible number to PROJECT.  

They can as is the usual of the asshats of the left, ASSUME, but not make definitive declarations.

The fact that Dr Fauci has never condemned Gov Cuomo or the 3 other governors who did the same, leads me to believe that Dr Fauci has been playing a subtle game of politics all along.

He must think people are as stupid as the morons of the left.  There is no subtle about it.

Besides, Fauci has changed his position on everything as often as the protesters change their underwear.

Just like when CNN & MSNBC gave Michael Avenatti as much air time as possible, the stench kind of improved everyone's ability to calculate two plus two must again equal 4.

Let's be real. These guys don't really have a clue what is working and what isn't. Not in totality. And describing what happened in New York as a "model" strains credulity.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is claiming that only an authoritarian approach by government can control spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  Dr. Fauci is advocating intrusive interventions by governments guided by expert advisors.  The expert advisors believe they are in charge and that only they can adequately control spread of the virus.  The responsibility for controlling spread of the virus rests upon government.

According to Dr. Fauci's worldview, the public has no role in controlling spread of the virus beyond complying with intrusive restrictions imposed by governments.  According to expert advisors, the role of the public is to protect themselves from becoming infected.  And the guidance provided by expert advisors has focused attention on protection rather than controlling spread of the virus.

Dr. Fauci's hubris hasn't worked; the numbers speak for themselves.  The authoritarian approach has restricted the public's lifestyles, killed the economy, and hasn't proven to be adequate for controlling spread of the virus.  What we need from Dr. Fauci is humility to admit that the authoritarian approach hasn't worked well.  What we need from Dr. Fauci is the humility to ask for the public's help in controlling spread of the virus.
