Anthony Fauci, America's chief infectious-disease specialist, is seen as a "thorn in the side" by the U.S. government. Recently, US President Donald Trump again shelled Fudge as a "disaster" and accused him of conflicting advice during the epidemic.
As for the current situation of the epidemic situation in the United States, trump claimed that "it is improving, and it is about to subside". However, Fudge said in an interview that the United States is facing great challenges at this stage. The epidemic will not automatically improve, and measures must be taken to reverse the situation rather than surrender.
Fudge has repeatedly stressed that in the process of restart, it is necessary to implement epidemic prevention and control measures and strictly follow the phased "restart" policy. Today, Fudge once again called for many lives to be saved if effective measures were taken to prevent the disease.
