Dr. Anthony Fauci warned the governors of four U.S. states that they need to get new infections under control.

If they don’t, they could experience a situation similar to what has happened to some states in the South that are battling a dramatic new surge in infections.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, spoke to “ABC News” during a 35-minute interview streamed live on Instagram Wednesday.
