The U.S. may be “facing a whole lot of trouble” as coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket across the country heading into the cold winter months.
On Monday, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, appeared on CNBC, saying the U.S. is “in a bad place” as the colder weather begins to settle across the nation.
“That’s a bad place to be when you’re going into the cooler weather of the fall and the colder weather of the winter,” Fauci said. “We’re in a bad place. Now we’ve got to turn this around.”
Health officials recorded more than 44,600 new COVID-19 on Sunday. The seven-day average also rose to 49,200 new cases
