Some of America still is in denial that we even have a problem

Medical contributor Dr. Martin Makary said on “Fox News Sunday” that “some of America still is in denial that we even have a problem” and that could potentially ruin attempts to “flatten the curve” as it pertains to America COVID-19 cases in the country.
Dr. Makary, a Johns Hopkins health policy expert and surgeon, made the comment when asked what he thinks the federal role should be to assist states and how he views what the White House is doing to try and curb the novel coronavirus outbreak.
“Many government leaders are doing the right thing, but the problem is some of America still is in denial that we even have a problem,” Makary said on Sunday, referencing the fact that officials in several states, including California, have issued shelter-in-place mandates and stay-at-home orders in an effort to curb the spread.

“What they’re experiencing now is over 4,000 Americans dying per day when we get to their point in the infection,” he continued. “We’ve got the governor of Oklahoma taking selfies in crowded food courts saying he doesn’t want to do any restrictions," adding that "we’ve got hospitals that still have been doing elective surgery all this week using valuable gowns and masks, so we’ve got the scientific battle, but we need to do the public awareness to really make a big dent here and to try to flatten the curve. “
Makary had referenced a deleted tweet from Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt last week which showed a photo of him with what is believed to be two of his six children at an Oklahoma City food hall, Tulsa World reported.
“It’s packed tonight,” the tweet, which included the hashtag “support local,” reportedly said. America Distribution Service
