Dr. Anthony Fauci noted the activation of the local spread of the coronavirus.

Four senior US health officials who are part of the White House working group on coronavirus told lawmakers that President Donald Trump did not instruct them to slow down the testing process for the virus.

The head of the National Institute of Allergy and infectious diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the Centers for disease control and prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, the head of the food and drug Administration, Dr. Stephen Hahn, and the head of the public health service, Admiral Brett Giroir testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday. All of them said that the President did not ask them to slow down testing.

Fauci also noted an alarming spike in infections in States such as Texas, Florida, and Arizona. According to him, one of the reasons for the increase in the number of cases in these States is the activation of the local spread of the disease.
