Dr. Fauci says he believes there should be a national stay-at-home order. Is he wrong?” Wallace asked Adams.TODAY: Dr. Jerome Adams on how the U.S. can most effectively combat the coronavirus. FNS FoxNews pic.twitter.com/Iv6nS9ZaVb— FoxNewsSunday (@FoxNewsSunday) April 5, 2020After saying that even residents of states without a stay-at-home order are still following guidelines from the Center of Disease Control, Adams then compared the coronavirus crisis to smoking and opioid usage, saying that states have different laws on cigarettes and drugs and that “more people will die even in the worst projections from cigarette smoking in this country than are going to die from coronavirus this year.”Wallace challenged that comparison. “There’s a big difference between opioids and cigarettes, which are something that people decide to use or not to use, and the coronavirus, which people catch. It’s not an individual choice,” he responded.“And you know, when President Trump says that he is a wartime president, during World War II, FDR didn’t say, ‘Well, it’s up to each state to decide what to do.’ He mobilized the nation. Again, why not a national stay-at-home order? The coronavirus doesn’t recognize states’ rights, so does the federal analogy really work here?” Wallace pressed.Adams replied by saying that governors are “intensely protective of their right to be able to decide what’s best for their states,” but that he and federal public health officials would “do everything we can” to advise them.Watch the exchange between Wallace and Adams in the clip above.Read original story Fox News’ Chris Wallace Challenges Surgeon General for Downplaying Coronavirus Compared to Smoking, Opioid Deaths At TheWrap
