Should the entire U.S. stay at home to stop the coronavirus outbreak? | The Tylt
Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the most influential voices in the national response to the coronavirus outbreak, thinks the entire United States should stay at home to prevent catastrophic numbers of Americans from dying. However, the Trump administration is hesitant to step on states' rights and believes the federal government should play a supportive role instead of a leading one. In the Trump administration's eyes, each state's situation is different, and so each state government should decide for themselves if and when to close, and how sharply to respond to the outbreak. Many are calling for a universal shutdown — the virus is clearly spreading and social distancing clearly works. The San Francisco Bay Area, a region that took an early and strong approach to social distancing, has been able to bring their outbreak numbers down to more manageable levels. But others are hesitant to support such a drastic measure. What do you think?
