GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): Here's the fact -- here's the bottom line. Okay? The mortality rate is .65. It has been decline -- declining consistently. That's 65 die out of 10,000 cases. Alright?

We're entering a stage of manageability and it's be -- and it's -- and it's only the increase in hospitalizations are really due, let's face it, to as the weather gets colder, people are going inside. That's gonna cause a spread. However, the numbers of hospitalizations is not affecting non-COVID patients. 

What does that tell you? That we did the right thing with capacity. That the worst state right now is Wisconsin, has 10% COVID patients in the hospital. That's nothing compared to what was going on in the spring or in the first -- the first wave of the pandemic.

So, we're not in a crisis moment. We have to pat ourselves on the back for what America did.
