Dr. Anthony Fauci returned to the mainstream media over the weekend as cases of covid continue to plunge across the USA; reminding Americans they should be ready to “pivot” to new restrictions of infections begin to rise.
“We can’t just say ‘We’re done. Now we’re going to move on,’” Fauci told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “We’ve got to be able to be flexible because we’re dealing with a dynamic situation.”

“Hopefully the cases will continue to come down as the weather gets warmer,” Fauci said.
“We’re not dealing with a more severe variant, and number two, the protection that’s afforded by vaccination and boosting as well as prior infection is really comparable to the BA.1,” Fauci added. “So the only difference is that it spreads a bit more efficiently, which is the reason why in the UK and in certain European countries they’re seeing an uptick or a turnaround and the beginning of some mini or moderate surges there.”
