” Its not going to be the way it was with polio and measles, where you get a vaccine, case closed, its done,” he included. “Its going to be public-health measures that linger for months and months.”
Fauci likewise cautioned Americans against believing a vaccine will be a “knockout punch” for the virus, noting that vaccines are often less reliable against respiratory infections.
” I tend to be conservative in my projections of whats going to happen,” he stated. “I think weve got to set sensible expectations. If Im surprised pleasantly, so be it.”

” Youre not going to have a profound degree of herd resistance for a significant duration of time, perhaps towards the end of 2021, into 2022,” he stated. “I feel extremely strongly that were going to need to have some degree of public-health procedures to continue. Perhaps not as strict as they are right now.”
” Youre not going to have a profound degree of herd immunity for a substantial period of time, possibly toward the end of 2021, into 2022,” he said.” I tend to be conservative in my forecasts of whats going to happen,” he said. I have these huge rallies,” Trump said on the call. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these morons … Fauci is a great guy.
