US won’t return to COVID-19 lockdowns despite Delta variant risks, Fauci predicts – National – .


Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden, Dr Anthony Fauci, said on Sunday he did not expect the United States to resume containment, despite growing risks of COVID-19 infections posed by the Delta variant.

“I think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country – not enough to crush the epidemic – but I believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter. “

While Fauci doesn’t think the United States will have to shut down again like it did last year, he warned on ABC that “things will get worse” as the Delta variant continues to spread.
