Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for three decades and one of the leading experts on pandemics in the U.S. for the last four decades, dished out some harsh words to both the U.S. public and federal authorities.

Fauci focused on three main failings by the public and authorities: many states have reopened too quickly, people are not abiding by rules of social distancing, and the authorities could do a better job at contact tracing where individuals who have been in touch with those who test positive with COVID-19 are contacted and told to stay home.

Over 10.6 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations' outbreaks.
