There was concern as people were traveling and gathering, as people were traveling and gathering, which is why experts tried to get the message across that people shouldn’t have large gatherings, but rather they should have their immediate households, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases, told NBC on Sunday.
“But you know that people will not always do what we unfortunately expect when we go in the next few weeks in December that we may see a surge that overlays the surge that we are already on,” said Fauci said.
Fauci said that he did not mean to scare people by delivering this message: “Except to say that it is not too late at all to do something about it because when we go back, let us be careful when we go back wherever we are are to just keep doing the things we talked about. ”
He said that it is known that something can be done about the infection curve, especially during the colder months of the year, by mitigating things like masks, softening distance, and lacking crowds or gathering attitudes.
When asked if there would be any worse warnings about trips preparing for Christmas and New Years, Fauci said, “I think we will face a different situation, we have to make choices as a nation, state, city and family, that we are in a very difficult time and have to do the limitations of the things we would have liked to have done, especially this holiday season. ”
This is because Fauci said, “We are getting into a really precarious situation because we are in the middle of a steep slope.”
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel, he said, as vaccines will soon be seen. “We’ll almost certainly vaccinate some of the first priority people before the end of December.” In January, February and March more and more people are vaccinated.
