Fauci doubts effectiveness of coronavirus vaccine in United States due to anti-vaxxers

Fauci doubts effectiveness of coronavirus vaccine in United States due to anti-vaxxers

Dr. Robert Redfield, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, echoed Fauci's comments on masks.

Warren pushed, "Can you make any kind of estimate on what we're looking at overall on the number of deaths before this is over?" Currently, more than 140 are being tested.

In May, the Department of Health and Human Services said it is partnering with drug maker AstraZeneca for at least 300 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and is throwing $1.2 billion behind that effort.

"Public confidence in vaccines is so important", Redfield said.

Fauci warned the nation could see the infection rate more than double to 100,000 cases a day if mitigation guidelines are not followed.

"We are now having 40-plus-thousand new cases a day. And so I am very concerned".

In places where cases are soaring, USA health officials are also considering "completely blanketing these communities with tests", Fauci said, to try to get a better sense of an outbreak.

Even in states whose leadership was more cautious, Fauci said, there have still been examples of large groups congregating and disregarding critical public health measures.

Los Angeles, the second-largest US city, has become a new epicenter in the pandemic as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge there despite California Governor Gavin Newsom's orders requiring bars to close and residents to wear masks in almost all public spaces.

"I mean, for the Fourth of July, we could all show our patriotism with a red, white and blue mask, going out there and showing some strength", he said in an appearance on "Fox & Friends".

Boom said he was anxious about July 4 Independence Day celebrations, when Americans traditionally flock to beaches and campgrounds and gather to watch fireworks displays. Only then, he said, will people feel confident about returning to some semblance of normal. CNN said that with only two-thirds of the population getting vaccinated and a 75% effective vaccine is not enough to create herd immunity. Fauci cautioned researchers still don't know whether recovery from virus will confer any kind of immunity or how long it will last.

"Monoclonal antibodies are synthetic antibodies that the theory is will provide protection against the infection of the virus, and we're hopeful that those studies by the late summer, early fall will provide us information about their effectiveness and safety", Hahn explained. The president even suggested in a recent Wall Street Journal interview that some people wear masks "as a way to signal disapproval of him".
