Fauci blamed the increase in part on the public's failure to comply with simple preventative measures like hand-washing and wearing masks.

President Donald Trump hasn't attended a meeting with the White House coronavirus task force in "several months", according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

During the interview, Fauci acknowledged some might say it would be hard to enforce the mandate.

"As president I will mandate mask wearing in all federal buildings and all interstate transportation because masks save lives - period", Biden said.

More than 80,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the us on Friday, according to Johns Hopkins University, breaking the record for the most in a day since the outbreak began. One of the issues, I get the argument, they say if you mandate a mask, then you're going to have to enforce it and that will create more of a problem.

"We're not uniformly doing that and that's one of the reasons we're seeing these surges", Fauci said.

"We've got to keep focused on washing our hands, watching our distance and wearing our face coverings when we can't watch our distance and in particular being careful in household gatherings".

He said there was a meeting last week and that Vice President Mike Pence is still in charge of the meetings. We certainly interact with the vice president at the task force meetings, and the vice president makes our feelings and what we talk about there known to the president.
