Anthony Fauci, Surgeon General Push Back on Trump Covid Claims

That number is far below the government's goal of having 20 million people in the US vaccinated by the end of December.

"I think it's just trying to get a massive vaccine program started and getting off on the right foot", he said.

He later added: 'Something how Dr. Fauci is revered by the LameStream Media as such a great professional, having done, they say, such an incredible job, yet he works for me and the Trump Administration, and I am in no way given any credit for my work.

"We don't really know what happens when you only have one dose after, like, a month", said Natalie Dean, a biostatistician at the University of Florida.

While looking ahead, Fauci recalled the success of a vaccination effort over 70 years ago in his home city of NY that provides a blueprint for what he believes is possible in 2021 across the U.S. In 1947, 5 million New Yorkers were immunized for smallpox in two weeks, he said. And the holiday season meant health workers were taking time off, he said. We're averaging 2-3,000 deaths per day.

Fauci's comments came the same day Johns Hopkins University reported that the US had surpassed 350,000 COVID-linked deaths, a figure he said he did not initially expect.

The grim milestones are piling up as the United States experiences another surge in coronavirus cases.

Dr Adams said he, too, expects vaccinations to "rapidly ramp up in the new year". Dr. Fauci told CNN on Friday that the United States will not follow in the footsteps of the United Kingdom and follow the advice provided by Pfizer and BioNTech to administer the second dose of the vaccine three weeks after the first.

Moncef Slaoui, the chief advisor to Operation Warp Speed, the military-led USA vaccine effort, told CBS there was an "assumption" that states had plans in place to administer the vaccine.

Garcetti also said the spike in coronavirus cases in his city of 4 million is a result of "spreading in the home", including during holiday gatherings.

"A lot of the local capacity to be able to vaccinate was being used for testing and responding to surges", he said.

Trump noted the gap between the delivery and immunization numbers in a separate tweet Sunday morning, appearing to characterize the disparity as the effect of a successful distribution plan. Nearly 300,000 new cases were reported Saturday.

The number of USA cases has exceeded 20 million, with more than 1 million in NY state alone. There's what we delivered, and we hope that those will be translated into vaccinations.

North Carolina and Texas reported record numbers of people in the hospital with COVID-19 - almost 3,600 and over 12,500, respectively. "We will do the best we can, as we have done over the last eight months, to make (certain) these vaccines indeed make it into the arms of people".

Trump has claimed he deserves recognition for the record speed researchers took to develop two vaccines that were authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
