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.
Dr. Birx says on Fox News Sunday that going to a salon or barber shop is not a good phase 1 activity even if both parties are wearing face masks. #FoxNewsSunday

Birx said on Fox this morning, about the view of the expert epidemiologists: "Our projections have always been between 100,000 and 240,000 …And that's with full mitigation." i.e. Relax social distancing and deaths go way beyond that.

Trump on April 20: “We’re going toward 50 or 60,000 people. … As you know, the low number was supposed to be 100,000 people.”
