Top U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci: Every state should issue “in-place asylum” order

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a recent interview that every state in the U.S. should now issue “in-place asylum” orders, according tomedia BGR. The top U.S. infectious disease expert told CNN he couldn’t understand why the order hasn’t been issued yet, the Capitol Hill newspaper reported.

Many states across the country have taken steps to require residents to stay at home as much as possible. Some states have issued “in-place asylum” orders that require residents to stay at home unless they are buying food or medicine, or have a job deemed necessary. Unfortunately, not all states are actually implementing these new rules.

Several states have decided to use different measures to enforce “in-place asylum” orders, such as “safer at home”, although the idea is the same. The shortcomings of many states are the limitations in the practical application of their mandates and in bringing people to compliance.

Dr. Fauci, unhappy with the U.S. government’s previous negative approach to the new corona virus threat, made his feelings clear in an interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper. “I don’t understand why this didn’t happen,” Fauci said in response to a question about why states don’t let people stay at home. “If you look at what’s happening in this country, I don’t understand why we haven’t done that yet. We really should do that. “

Sadly, many of the decisions surrounding the new corona virus “sealing the city” and “in-place asylum” orders are considered politically motivated. Many Republican lawmakers argue that the country should remain “open to markets” and that the economic damage from the blockade outweighs the benefits of keeping people at home.
