Dr. Anthony Fauci said the country should probably mandate mask use, even if people complain about the trouble with enforcing it.
“If everyone agrees that this is something that's important, and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and say, you know, 'We're going to mandate it but let's just do it'. I think that would be a great idea to have everybody do it uniformly,” he said Friday on CNN. “I get the argument, say, ‘Well, if you mandate a mask, then you're going to have to enforce it and that'll create more of a problem.’ Well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it."
Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
