The chief scientific officer in the fight against the coronavirus in the United States, Anthony Fauci, has been concerned about the figures of Covid-19 in the country ahead of the arrival of autumn and winter.
“It is not desirable enter autumn and winter with a community circulation at this level, because if we do we have a difficult situation that will be very challenging, “said the epidemiologist this Friday at an event, as reported by the CNN television network.
In addition, the scientific advisor expectations of a speedy return to normalcy have cooled down again thanks to the vaccine, since, although it could be available by the end of the year, the process of vaccinating the population takes a long time and other variables come into play.
“In our society, people may not want to get the vaccine right away and you want to see what happens to the first 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 million people “he pointed out.
Fauci has explained that, in the event that the vaccine approval processes go as expected, the United States could have about 700 million doses by April 2021. Globally, the pandemic has caused 989,761 deaths and more than 32.6 million infections since it emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019.
