While the vaccination campaign continues at full speed within the scope of combating the Covid-19 epidemic in the USA, Dr. Frightening statement came from Anthony Fauci. Interviewing the US National Press Club, Fauci said, “We are really on the verge of a surge. “It is a really critical time right now because we can easily go into a fluctuation,” he said.
“60 THOUSAND CASES A DAILY MAY BE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW WAVE”
Noting that the number of cases in the USA has decreased since January, but the number of cases is on the rise again, Fauci stated that the daily number of cases in the north of the country is approaching 30 thousand. “If we reach 60 thousand cases a day, we are in another wave,” Fauci said.
“MEASURES SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED”
Assuming that the targets set in the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 in the USA have been achieved, Fauci stated that it would be wrong to wear a mask and loosen the social distance rules. Using the expressions “People really have what we call Covid-19 fatigue”, Fauci stated that loosening the measures will frustrate the efforts made to contain the epidemic.
While it is aimed to vaccinate the entire adult population in the USA by the end of May, clinical studies on vaccination for children continue. A total of 1 billion 210 million doses were ordered from Moderna, Novavax, Sanofi and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, as well as Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines in the USA.
Last Thursday, 4 million Covid-19 vaccines were administered in the USA, breaking a record in daily vaccination. Biden, on the other hand, announced the goal of applying 200 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine by the end of May.
The total number of cases in the USA reached 31 million 538 thousand 808, and the total loss of life reached 569 thousand 924.
