Recent comments from Anthony Fauci reveal that individuals who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine can gather with fewer restrictions in home settings.
Fauci told George Stephanopoulos on This Week that, “We have some preliminary data for some Israeli studies that the level of virus in the nasopharynx of vaccinated people is extremely low” which means that individuals who have received the vaccine are less likely to spread the virus as well as exhibiting symptoms. The study in which Fauci referenced was by the Israeli Clalit Health care system in Israel that performed the studies on individuals who received both of Pfizer’s vaccines.
With the recent studies performed they provided a “94% drop in symptomatic COVID-19 infections.” With this study people can be reassured and confident that vaccines do work and this is the way countries defeat the virus. “The more people receive the vaccine, the sooner states can properly re-open” Fauci stated, followed by the comment for vaccinated persons “You can have dinner in a home without masks on. You can have friends who are doubly vaccinated and protected together with you.”
With these recent comments from Dr. Fauci one of America’s leading medical experts is promising that we are indeed winning the fight against the virus and we are continuing our path to return to normality. In the “State of the Union” show with host Dana Bash, Fauci discussed the easing of certain restrictive guidelines “so you can start doing things essentially in the home setting where you are not out in the community”. But we are still a bit from opening public and communal guidelines; Fauci told Dana Bash. “The CDC will be coming out within the next few weeks, maybe even sooner, with some guidelines.”
