Americans may still have to wear face masks in the fight against the Coronavirus in 2022. This is what Senior Adviser Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
Coronavirus has already claimed the lives of nearly half a million people in the United States. No other country in the world has had these losses so far. The same applies to the number of confirmed cases of the virus: With more than 28 million infections, the United States is also on the highest scaffold here.
Fauci – the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden – described the death toll on CNN as “a terrible historical landmark in history.”
He added that Americans may still be forced to wear mouth masks next year. He added, “It will depend on the amount of the virus in our society and the potential variables that spread.” He emphasized that other aura measures would be addressed or mitigated “to a significant degree of normality.”
In an interview with NBC News, Fauci said it was too early to say when the United States could achieve mass immunity. He also told Fox News that the current vaccines appear to protect against the British alternative, but are less effective against South Africa. “If it becomes dominant, we may need a new version of the vaccine that targets the South African species.”
Currently, just under 12.8 percent of the American population has been partially vaccinated against the virus. 5.35% were actually fully vaccinated.
