Dr. Fauci: ‘We’re Going in the Wrong Direction’ with the Covid Pandemic

‘And since we have 50% of the country that not fully vaccinated, that’s a problem’

FAUCI: “Well, when they do modeling, Jake, they generally give you the worst case scenario and the best case scenario, but somewhere in the middle, if you look historically at the modeling that has been done over the last 18 months, for the most part, it’s been pretty accurate. So I’m not sure it would be the worst case scenario, but it’s not going to be good. We’re going in the wrong direction. If you look at the inflection of the curve of new cases and, as you said in the run-in to this interview, it is among the unvaccinated. And since we have 50% of the country that not fully vaccinated, that’s a problem. Particularly when you have a variant like delta, which has this extraordinary characteristic of being able to spread very efficiently and very easily from person to person. And we know we have many, many, many vulnerable people in this country who are unvaccinated. And that’s the reason why, as I’ve said so many times, we have the tools to blunt that and make that and make that model wrong. But if we don't vaccinate people, the model will predict that we're going to be in trouble as we continue to get more and more cases.”
