EXCERPT:

FAUCI: "There were several low points from the standpoint — I mean, I don’t have emotional reactions to these things. I’ve been through this so many times in different situations, but it does intellectually pain me when I see things like pleading for people to do the kinds of things that you know work, the mask wearing, the physical separation. And the denial, I mean, one of the things that I think — if I go through the multiple things that were actually painful for me was when you were seeing situations where there were hospitals that were almost overrun, where you were having 20 ICU beds in a particular hospital and 50 people who needed ICU care. And in those same regions there were people who were denying that this was going on, saying, 'Oh, it’s fake news. It’s a hoax.' I mean, how could you possibly say that when people in your own state, your own city, your own county are dying?”
