On Wednesday’s Hallie Jackson Reports, medical contributor Dr. Kavita Patel declared that masks are even more necessary today than they were in the past and that pilots who made in-flight announcements on the striking down of the mask mandate put people’s lives at risk.

Guest host Garrett Haake wondered about the timing of the ruling, “You’ve cases having a bit of an uptick especially in the northeast. Obviously the decision to get rid of the mandate was a legal one made by a federal judge. From a public health standpoint, do you think it's an appropriate time to make that decision?”
