California just became the second state to surpass 1 million Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic -- closely following Texas, which hit the grim milestone earlier this week.

White House coronavirus response team member Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged that Americans have “an independent spirit” but that it is now time for them to do what they are told.

California passed the 1 million mark Thursday for Covid-19 cases, becoming the second state after Texas to hit that threshold.

Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed concerns Thursday about an independent society trying to fight the coronavirus, arguing Americans should just listen to public health officials.
