Azar noted that many counties across the country have yet to suffer a single death, and so, "There should not be one-size-fits-all approaches to reopening".

He added that there are many concerns as shutdowns continue in some areas, as there are serials health consequences from being locked down for extended periods, including people avoiding medical protections they need.

Asked to make clear whether he was condemning the American public for leading unhealthy way of lives, Mr Azar stated: "We have a significantly disproportionate burden of co-morbidities in the United States- obesity, hypertension, diabetes- these are demonstrated facts ... that do make us at risk for any type of disease burden". In response, Azar suggested that was the cost of freedom, saying: "I think in any individual instance you're going to see people doing things that are irresponsible".

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is laying part of the blame for the coronavirus death toll on underlying health conditions many Americans suffer from.
