Fauci: “Possible” for Americans to wear face masks in 2022

The main epidemiologist in the United States, Anthony Fauci, considered it “possible” that Americans should wear face masks in 2022, although he estimated that there may be “a degree of normality” by the end of this year.

“As we move into the fall and winter, by the end of the year, I fully agree with the (American, Joe Biden) president that we will approach a degree of normalcy,” said the epidemiologist, who predicted that for Next July, the United States will have enough vaccines to “vaccinate practically everyone.”

Biden, who took office on January 20, has predicted that in February there will be more than half a million deaths and that in total more than 600,000 people will die.

Fauci called it “terrible” and “really horrible” that the country is approaching 500,000 deaths from the coronavirus pandemic, which has been contracted by more than 28 million Americans.

“If you look at what happened now, and we are still not out of that, half a million deaths. It’s terrible. It is historical. We haven’t seen anything even like this in over 100 years since the 1918 influenza pandemic, “the expert told the” Meet the Press “program on NBC News.

The United States, which leads the world statistics of the pandemic, this Sunday accounted for 28.1 million infected and 498,254 deaths, according to the independent count of John Hopkins University.

Deaths caused by the pandemic have already exceeded the number of Americans killed in battles, with the exception of the Civil or Civil War, which was fought between 1861 and 1865 and left 620,000 soldiers dead.

“People in decades will speak of this as a terribly historic milestone in the history of the country,” said Fauci, in another interview with the “State of the Union” space on CNN.

And he admitted, however, that the number of positive cases is decreasing.

“The only thing we do not want to do is feel satisfied that the situation is declining so sharply that we are now out of the woods, because we are still at a baseline of daily infection that is quite problematic,” he warned.
