A transcript is as follows:
JOHN BERMAN: The World Health Organization has declared an emergency. Should the United States declare a public health emergency on this?
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: I’m not going to get ahead of that. That’s something under active consideration, but I don’t want to be giving an opinion until we sit down with the team to talk about whether it happens or not. That would not be appropriate.
