Fauci Says U.S. Going in ‘Wrong Direction,’ May Need Booster

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Fauci Says U.S. Going in ‘Wrong Direction,’ May Need Booster” – below is their description.

The U.S. is moving in the “wrong direction” in combating a new wave of Covid-19, and a booster vaccine shot may be needed especially for the most vulnerable, said Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert.

He said new U.S. recommendations on masking for the vaccinated are under “active consideration,” as the delta variant fuels a surge of infections around the nation. With half of the country still not fully vaccinated, the U.S. faces a worst-case scenario of daily deaths reaching 4,000, the same level as during last winter’s peak, he said.

“I’m not sure if it would be the worst-case scenario but it’s not going to be good,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re going in the wrong direction.”
