‘It’s Going To Be Very Disturbing’: Fauci Says COVID Cases Could Surge By 100,000 A Day

In his Tuesday testimony before members of Congress, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke about his concerns over certain states’ reopening plans and the surge of cases the nation has seen in past days. He noted the death totals will be concerning and the country is “going in the wrong direction.”

Before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee, Fauci fielded questions from senators — one question covered new data showing a 40,000 increase in cases one day last week. He said that “we’re not in control” and it would come at no surprise to him if the nation saw an increase by 100,000 cases in one day.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” Fauci testified. “I’m very concerned. I’m not satisfied with what’s going on because we’re going in the wrong direction.”

According to the Guardian, Fauci called out younger Americans to follow guidelines.

“What we saw were a lot of people who maybe felt because they think they are invulnerable – and we know many young people are not because they’re getting serious disease – that therefore their getting infected has nothing to do with anyone else,” Fauci said.

Fauci urged the public to follow CDC and local guidelines, including the wearing of a mask in public and maintaining six feet distance from others.

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
