Nov 10, 2020

CNN – Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday that he plans to remain in his role as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases through the remainder of the Trump administration and into President-elect Joe Biden’s administration.

“I have no intention of leaving,” Fauci told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “This is an important job. I’ve been doing it now for a very long time. I’ve been doing it under six presidents.”

Fauci, who turns 80 on December 24, warned that the United States was in a “serious situation” with cases exceeding 100,000 a day, but said the country “can turn it around.”

“Unfortunately, we predicted it when we were talking about the fact that as we enter into the coolest season of the fall and the upcoming coldest season of the winter, that you’re going to start seeing more indoor activity, and we never got down to a good baseline,” said Fauci.

He said “help is on the way with a vaccine,” following the announcement by Pfizer on Monday that early data shows its vaccine is 90% effective.

On Monday, Pfizer and BioNTech said their vaccine candidate BNT162b2 is 90% effective in first interim analysis of Phase 3 study in participants without previous evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Speaking before Pfizer and BioNTech released their vaccine news, Fauci said a vaccine with an efficacy of 70% to 75% would be going in the right direction.

While the U.S. makes up approximately 4% of the world’s population, it has had approximately 20% of all COVID-19 cases. As of Tuesday, the U.S. had reported 10.1 million COVID-19 infections and 238,251 deaths, just ahead of India (8.6 million cases to date). To put that in context: The U.S. has a population of 328 million people versus 1.35 billion in India.

Fauci has walked a fine line between educating the public about coronavirus and President Trump. Last month, Trump took aim at Fauci on a campaign call and on Twitter TWTR, -1.66%, calling him a “disaster” in a campaign call and bemoaning his media appearances, but the veteran immunologist told Americans to follow the scientific data, and to stay out of the political fray … Read more.
