Dr Anthony Fauci says 70% to 85% of Americans need to be fully vaccinated for a return to normal. So far it’s less than 2%. Fauci also flip flopped on the efficacy of masks, first saying they don’t help, then saying they do help and we should wear two! Does anyone listen to this guy any more?
Fauci is a Deep State troll
About 70% to 85% of the US population should be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before the country can begin to return to a sense of normalcy, Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN Tuesday night.
So far, less than 2% of Americans have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Across the US, more than 32.7 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered, with about 26.4 million people having received at least one dose. About 6 million people have received both doses, the CDC data shows. Fauci said he’s hopeful the country can get to that high level of vaccinations by the end of the summer to the beginning of fall.
“Having said that,” he added, “there is an absolute ‘but’ in that. And the ‘but’ is that we have to address the variants.”
Experts have sounded the alarm about the new Covid-19 variants that have been detected in the US, warning the country is now in a race against time to vaccinate as many people as possible before the variants spread too far and possibly trigger another surge of infections.
I guess Fauci hasn’t seen this. https://t.co/0Z9gPldSBD

Democrats using COVID for more power
Infectious disease expert Dr. Michael Osterholm said earlier this week that a surge fueled by the variant first detected in the UK — the B.1.1.7 strain — is likely to occur “in the next six to 14 weeks.”
And there are also concerns around what the variants will mean for vaccine efficacy. Studies have suggested a variant from South Africa could pose a problem for vaccines, while a new report this week said a mutation that could impact vaccines has also been detected in samples of the B.1.1.7 strain.
The best thing Americans can do now, Fauci said, is to prevent the virus from spreading further and mutating.
“The only way a virus mutates is if it can replicate. So if you vaccinate people and double down on public health measures and keep the level of viral dynamics low we will not have an easy evolution into mutations,” he said. “That’s something that people really need to understand.”
“The way you stop those mutations: Get vaccinated and abide by the public health measures,” Fauci said.
