‘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.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
