The U.S. could be in for a “dark, bad winter,” warned Dr. Fauci this week – an opinion similar to last year. Stating he looks forward to Christmas 2021.
“You know, if we don’t get people vaccinated who need to be vaccinated, and we get that conflating with an influenza season, we could have a dark, bad winter,” the White House medical adviser said during an appearance on The Takeout podcast. However, he previewed a possible way out.
“We could also avoid a dark, bad winter if we get people vaccinated to a very high degree over the next several weeks to a month or two,” Fauci added.
Fauci had a similar opinion last November, warning of a bleak winter while explaining his plan to forgo his traditional plans over fears of the virus.
“For my own family, I’m saying we had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. We’re looking forward to a great Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2021,” he told USA Today at the time.
President warned of a “dark winter” in January as coronavirus virus and fatalities spiked.
“We didn’t get into this mess overnight, and it’s going to take months for us to turn things around,” he said at the time.
The COVID vaccines have been available for months, and 55 percent of the U.S. population is considered fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Instead of focusing on vaccines, the Biden administration restricts life-saving monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida and Alabama due to concerns of “equitable distribution.”
“There’s going to be a huge disruption, and patients are going to suffer as a result of this. And so we’re going to work like hell to make sure we can overcome the obstacles that HHS and the Biden administration are putting on us,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) vowed.
This week the state successfully secured “approximately 3,000 doses of the GlaxoSmithKline antibody treatment product, sutrovimab,” as Breitbart News reported.
