Despite the best efforts of health experts—including Dr. Anthony Fauci—COVID-19 is still thriving in several parts of the country. In fact, this week 22 states reported increasing infections, with many also experiencing an increase in the number of daily deaths and the testing positivity rate. According to Dr. Fauci, there is one thing that could help turn the coronavirus pandemic around, but it would require all of our participation. Read on, to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. Fauci Says What He'd Do if He Had a 'Magic Wand'"If you could wave a magic wand over the United States and change one thing tomorrow to improve the trajectory of this pandemic, what would it be?" the nation's leading infectious disease expert was asked today by Sean Rameswaram in an interview published on Vox. "I think apart from a vaccine, which we'll have to wait a few months for, if I were to wave a wand now, it would be to get the entire country uniformly pulling together in a public health way to get these cases down," he confessed.Fauci points out that post 911 and Pearl Harbor, "we didn't have any political arguing about what we needed to do. Everybody was in it together. That's really what we're dealing with." Fauci wants people to remember that we shouldn't be fighting each other—as has been the case in America, especially with the "highly charged political season with big-time, high-stakes elections.""We've lost sight of the fact that the bad guy here is the virus. The bad guy is not one side or the other," he said. RELATED: Dr. Fauci Says You Can Catch COVID This Way After All Fauci Said the Fundamentals Really WorkHe reiterated that public health measures—such as his recommended fundamentals of mask wearing, social distancing, avoiding crowded spaces, and staying outdoors instead of indoors— "should be the gateway and the vehicle to getting the country's economy back and opening up the country."And yet, "there are some who interpret that as an obstacle. It isn't the obstacle. It's the solution."Dr. Fauci wants to keep hammering this message home: "We're all in this together. And when you have some groups of society who make it a political issue, it makes it very complicated to get a uniform, consistent approach in our country."So, if he could perform magic, his ultimate spell would be to unite the country. "I don't want to get too melodramatic, but we are at war with a virus. We are not at war with each other. So my magic wand would be … a spirit of pulling together." So let's do it everyone, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Representative Doug Collins is preparing to introduce a constitutional amendment to block potential attempts to add justices to the Supreme Court as some Democrats eye adding seats should President Trump's upcoming nominee be confirmed.The amendment would block "court packing," or adding justices to the Supreme Court, for 10 years after any bill is passed to enlarge the court, a measure Collins said aims to "take the political emotion of the moment out of the way."“The proposed amendment—really, it should be a bipartisan issue," the Georgia Republican said. "We should not have decisions like packing the court to be based on emotional or political decisions.""The reason we did it is because it seems like the Democrats, every time they don’t get what they want, they want to change the rules," Collins added.Several Democrats have suggested or said directly that they are open to adding justices to the Court should President Trump's proposed nominee to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg be confirmed.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that "nothing is off the table" if Democrats gain control of the Senate, and Senator Ed Markey called directly for abolishing the filibuster and expanding the Supreme Court. House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler said that if Senate Republicans confirm a justice before a new Senate and president take office "then the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the Supreme Court."Meanwhile, House Democrats are planning to introduce a bill next week that would limit the terms of Supreme Court justices to 18 years instead of their current lifetime tenure.“It would save the country a lot of agony and help lower the temperature over fights for the court that go to the fault lines of cultural issues and is one of the primary things tearing at our social fabric,” said Representative Ro Khanna, the Democratic bill's lead sponsor.
