America is ‘OUT of the pandemic phase’: Fauci confirms Covid-19 infections are ‘at a low level’ but people should still get ‘intermittently’ vaccinated
- The Biden administration’s top medical advisor made the statement yesterday
- He declared that ‘we are certainly, in this country, out of the pandemic phase’
- Fauci has been one of the most vocal proponents of draconian Covid policies
- He insisted however that vaccinations would have to continue, perhaps yearly
- The US is now seeing roughly 50,000 new infections per week – just 6 per cent of the weekly totals at the peak of Covid
The Biden administration’s top medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has declared the United States is now ‘out of the pandemic phase’ of Covid-19, as cases and hospitalizations associated with the disease remain low.
Fauci, who has been one of the most vocal proponents of draconian Covid measures such as mask and vaccine mandates throughout the pandemic, made the statement during a PBS broadcast yesterday.
‘We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase,’ he announced on air.
‘Namely, we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now.’
But he insisted the virus could not be stamped out completely and that long-term vaccination programs may need to continue.
‘We’re not going to eradicate this virus. We can keep that level very low, and intermittently vaccinate people… That might be every year, that might be longer, in order to keep that level low,’ he continued.
‘But, right now, we are not in the pandemic phase in this country.’
The chief medical advisor’s comments come as mask mandates have been lifted in most areas of the country as the number of new infections per week nationwide sits at around 50,000 – just 6 per cent of the peak according to Reuters.
