While several states have issued stay-at-home orders, others have not and that is something Dr. Anthony Fauci does not understand.
Dr. Fauci is maintaining that all Americans should be under stay-at home-orders.
“I don’t understand why that’s not happening,” Fauci said, adding, “If you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.”

“If you think it’s not going to happen to you, there are many proof points all across this country for that matter around the rest of the world,” Newsom said.
California was the first state to issue a stay-at-home order.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) followed suit after resisting for weeks and issued a stay-at-home order for Florida, as IJR previously reported. The order is set to last for at least 30 days from its start date.
DeSantis responded to Trump’s decision at a news conference.
“To me, that was, ‘People aren’t just going to back to work,'” DeSantis said. “That’s a national pause button.”
Experts are not optimistic social distancing guidelines will end completely by April 30.
Surgeon General Jerome Adams believes Americans will still need to practice measures after April 30.
“In my opinion, I think that in 30 days we will still be telling the country in general that you need to practice these measures,” Adams said.
As of April 2, 38 states have issued stay-at-home orders affecting at least 297 million people. States that have not issued orders thus far include Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
The United States has reported at least 245,000 coronavirus cases and 6,000 deaths, as of Friday morning,
