Appearing on a CNN virtual town hall Thursday night, Fauci — responding to a question from Anderson Cooper — said that everyone in America should be under a stay at home order, although he stopped short of saying that President Donald Trump should institute it on a national level.

“The tension between federally mandated versus states rights to do what they want is something I don’t want to get into,” Fauci said of a federal order to stay home. “But if you look at what is going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.”
