Dr Fauci Says US is "Out Of The Pandemic Phase"

Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the United States is currently “out of the pandemic phase” of Covid-19.

“We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase,” Fauci continued, adding “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.

“So, if you’re saying if we are out of the pandemic phase in this country? We are. What we hope to do, I don’t believe I’ve spoken about this widely, we’re not going to eradicate this virus. If we can keep that level very low and intermittently vaccinate, and I don’t know how often that would be, Judy. That might be every year, it might be longer in order to keep the level low. But right now we are not in the pandemic phase in this country.” - mediaite.com

As COVID cases begin to pick up across the U.S. the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday said that three out of every four children have been infected by COVID. This comes as the White House moved to make Paxlovid pills, which can reduce serious illness, more widely available.
