Dr. Fauci: "No one has ever mitigated the way I'm seeing people mitigate right now."

Dr. Birx just got a decent question about where we're at on the models' projections. We were told that with mitigation that 100K to 200K people would die from the virus. Birx believes that if mitigation continues that we could come in under these numbers.

Admiral Giroir on future of antibody testing: "When we tell you that you're likely immune from that disease, we want the tests to work."

He said the U.K. has had millions of faulty tests that help no one.
