Is the end of the COVID pandemic in sight? Dr. Anthony Fauci intervenes | KTA

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — There are encouraging signs that the coronavirus pandemic is improving, with the number of new cases declining in many parts of the country. However, hospitals are still overwhelmed and hundreds of Americans are still dying from COVID every day.

Washington DC correspondent Hannah Brandt asked chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday if the end of this pandemic was finally in sight.

“Well, it will end for sure, hopefully sooner rather than later,” Fauci said.

Dr Fauci says that while we won’t be able to completely eradicate the virus, we can control it.

“Let the infection get so low that there are relatively few hospitalizations and deaths and it doesn’t disrupt society,” Fauci explained.

The GOP Doctors Caucus, led by Rep. Andy Harris of Maryland, insists President Joe Biden isn’t doing enough.

“Clearly the Biden administration doesn’t really have a plan to fight the virus other than sending people tests and pushing less-than-effective boosters,” Harris said.

This week, the Biden administration introduced a new website aimed at increasing access to testing and promised to send millions of N95 masks to Americans.

“It could have been done better earlier, but we are making extraordinary progress now and catching up with that,” Fauci said.

Many Republicans also argue that vaccination mandates don’t help.

“We are not going to be able to reinforce, mandate or test our way out of this virus,” Harris said.

But Dr Fauci points out how dangerous the virus can be for the unvaccinated.

“There is a 10 times higher risk of being infected, a 17 times higher risk of being hospitalized and a 20 times higher risk of dying,” Fauci said.

Dr. Fauci says he doesn’t blame people who didn’t get vaccinated, but he won’t stop encouraging them to get vaccinated.
