What did Dr. Fucci say?
CBS News on Friday asked what Dr. Fucci thought about the White House’s reluctance to wear a mask as a precautionary measure against the virus and to believe in routine testing instead.
“The data speak for themselves – we had a supremacist event at the White House that was crowded together with people not wearing masks.”
Dr. Fucci noted that for the past six months experts have been recommending the wearing of masks and condemning talk of a “cure” for a corona virus – in a word, Mr Trump referred to the experimental Govit-19 treatments he received during his recent stay. Army Hospital.
