Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top American infectious disease expert, has described that America is going in the ‘wrong direction’ in its fight against the lethal pandemic Coronavirus, as the United States has observed a fresh surge in states where inoculation rates were low.
On Sunday, Anthony Fauci, in an interview on the “State of the Union” program of CNN, explained that many susceptible Americans in the nation remain uninoculated, and they are those who are urging the rise in Coronavirus infections. He explained that the American people are going in the wrong direction.
Fauci said that if people look at the inflection of the curve of novel cases, it’s among the uninoculated, and since we have 50% of the nation isn’t completely inoculated, that is the main problem, especially when people have Delta strain (highly transmissible and dangerous), which has this special characteristic of being able to spread much efficiently.
Vaccines are available all across the country
All across the United States, COVID-19 vaccines are massively available, and fewer than sixty percent of adults are completely inoculated with, and 68.8% of adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to the United States CDC data.
But millions of Americans haven’t been inoculated, and the Joe Biden administration is forcing people to get their vaccine jabs, particularly in American states where infection rates have significantly increased in past weeks.
Earlier week, Jeffery Zients, the White House adviser, said that Texas, Missouri, and Florida account for 40% of all the novel infections across the United States, with around one in five of all novel patients appearing in Florida.
On Sunday, the infectious disease expert Fauci explained that if you are inoculated, the Coronavirus vaccine is very protective against the Delta strain, especially critical diseases that are mostly leading to hospitalization and sometimes to death.
Fauci said that it is really an outbreak among the uninoculated, which is the main reason why people are out there especially requesting unvaccinated people to get inoculated. Moreover, he described that recommending that the vaccinated cover their faces with masks is under active consideration by America’s leading public health officials, while booster jabs may be recommended for Americans with weak immune systems who have been inoculated.
Dr. Anthony Fauci explained that he has participated in negotiations about changing the face mask measures.
