Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious diseases expert, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that it’s pained him to see hospitals overrun with coronavirus patients in some of the same regions where deniers have called the pandemic a “hoax” or “fake news.”

“How could you possibly say that when people in your own state, your own city, your own county, are dying?” asked Fauci, who serves as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical officer for President Joe Biden’s administration.

“To me, that just boggled me, and it still does — how reality can just be put aside in denying the seriousness of the situation we are in,” he continued. “And here we are today, looking at 500,000 Americans who have died thus far.
