The United States stands still in a Covid-19 pandemic, Dr Fauci stated
November 29, 2022: The top communicable disease expert in the nation, Dr Anthony Fauci, stated that the United States stands still in the Covid-19 pandemic, and he exists “tortured” by the divisive state of American politics.
“As a public health administrator, I don’t want to see misery and dying from Covid,” he said. “I don’t care if you’re a far-right Republican or a far-left Democrat, all the people deserve to have the safety of good health in public, and that’s not happening.”
Fauci stated that 300 and 400 individuals would die from Covid every day, and the uptake of the recent vaccine booster has been less than 15%.
“I think the idea that forgets it; this is over, it isn’t,” he said.
The 81-year-old became a household name in the Covid-19 pandemic, sometimes battling against misinformation from the highest government levels. He challenged ex-President Donald Trump on everything from the reason for hydroxychloroquine to mask mandates and his steadfast dedication to science, making him a quasi-celebrity.
White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Dr Ashish Jha said Sunday he knew it had been two years for Americans, but it is still “essential” to get vaccinated before the holiday season.
“We understand that everyone wants to move on,” Jha told ABC News’s “This Week” “The good news is that they can move on if they continue their immunity up to date.”
Fauci is announcing plans in August to step from his role running the National Institute of Allergy and Contagious Diseases and advising the White House as its chief medical advisor by year-end. He gave his expected final Covid on Tuesday, encouraging people to vaccinate.
“I hope to be recognised for what I’ve tried to do, bringing science and medicine and public health principles to severe crises we’ve had,” Fauci said Sunday. “As I’ve said before, I’ve given evenings I have to do that.”
Fauci has advised seven U.S. presidents, which began with Ronald Reagan beginning the HIV/AIDS epidemic, West Nile virus, the 2001 anthrax attacks, pandemic influenza, multifarious bird influenza threats, Ebola, Zika and Covid and monkeypox.
