Dr. Fauci warned Thursday that the United States “is not going in the right direction” after the country reported 55,000 new cases of Covid-19 in one day, breaking the world record for a daily increase set by Brazil on June 19. , as it wobbles toward the Fourth of July holiday weekend, with social distancing as a major concern at Independence Day celebrations across the country.

Fauci also referenced research published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Cell to sound the alarm about a new prevalent mutation of the virus believed to have first spread in Italy
