Birx Says Protesters Without Masks Are “Devastatingly Worrisome,” Restates Projection Of Up To 240K Deaths

The New York Post reports:

Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, was asked by host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” about crowds that gathered at Michigan’s state capitol from a “public health standpoint.”

“It’s devastatingly worrisome to me personally because if they go home and, in fact, their grandmother or their grandfather who has a co-morbid condition and they have a serious or a very or an unfortunate outcome, they will feel guilty for the rest of our lives,” she responded. “So we need to protect each other at the same time we’re voicing our discontent.”

The guidelines for phase one require a state to show that the number of coronavirus cases has been declining for 14 straight days. No state has yet met that qualification.
