MARC SIEGEL (FOX MEDICAL CONTRIBUTOR): I don't think we are in free fall. I don't like that expression because, yes, we have a very high number of cases, over 46,000 over the last 24 hours. Note that the number of deaths in the United States is under 250 right now, so we are seeing way more cases, way more young people infected, they are spreading it, they are not taking proper precautions. We are also seeing the first wave -- Dr. Fauci is right, we're still in the first wave, but it has changed. The geographics of it are now the south in the west. The whole west coast, the west and the south. I like his expression “knee-deep." Notice he didn't say “thigh-deep," he said “knee-deep." I think that that’s also accurate because you're seeing a different thing in our hospitals than we saw New York and New Jersey and Connecticut when we were besieged here. We’re not seeing in the West and the South as many sick patients, as many patients on ventilators. They are superimposed, Harris, on people that have other conditions. That part is really a mess, and COVID-19 has to be isolated. That's a problem. How do you isolate all these cases on top of the hospital? You're still in the first wave. It's difficult and it's one of the things people have to be aware of.
