FOX News Rundown Extra: COVID Is Staging A Comeback. Are Mask Mandates Really The Answer?
COVID is trying to stage a comeback, especially in areas with low vaccination rates.
As the Delta variant spreads throughout the U.S., so is talk of reimposing mask mandates.
Earlier this week on the FOX News Rundown, Admiral Brett Giroir -- former Assistant Health Secretary under President Trump -- joined host Lisa Brady to discuss the recent COVID spikes and whether mask mandates are the way to curb them.
While Admiral Giroir says certain Americans should continue to mask up, he insists the government should not mandate them. However, he did lay out what the Biden Administration and health officials should be doing more to address the current coronavirus wave.
Our interview was too long and we could not include all of it in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversation with former Assistant Health Secretary Admiral Brett Giroir and hear his complete take on what government should and should not do as it deals with yet another COVID surge and millions of Americans who are still reluctant to be vaccinated.

The bipartisan infrastructure bill failed its test vote in the Senate, however the group of Democratic and Republican lawmakers who drafted the framework continue negotiating the legislation and President Biden suggested this would be a momentary setback until the measure is brought back next week.

Again Fox, sound quality is terrible. Why does NPR, Axios, and Apples morning brief sound professionally done while fox podcast sounds likes high school AV club?
Trey Yingst needs a vacation. He’s slipping and skewing. Move someone else in who understands the issues better. Both sides. A correspondent needs to keep opinion OUT of the mix.
Only with Fox anything will you get the most inaccurate news, facts or the truth. The radicalization of the low is conservative is about the only thing you can count on. Should be shut down for the propaganda they spread. I’d give it -10 if I could.
