Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested at Wednesday's Senate hearing on the federal pandemic response that shutdowns did not curb the spread of the coronavirus. Dr. Anthony Fauci wasn't having it.

"You've lauded New York for their policy," Paul said during the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions subcommittee hearing. "New York had the highest death rate in the world. How can we possibly be jumping up and down and saying, 'Oh, Governor Cuomo did a great job'?"

"No, you misconstrued that, senator, and you've done that repetitively in the past," Fauci replied. "They got hit very badly, they made some mistakes. Right now, if you look at what's going on right now, the things that are going on in New York, to get their test positivity to 1 percent or less, is because they are looking at the guidelines that we have put together from the task force of the four or five things, or masks, social distancing, outdoors more than indoors, avoiding crowds, and washing hands."
