Dr Anthony Fauci, the White House medical adviser has reported that about 99.2 percent of the recent deaths from Covid-19 in the United States were unvaccinated people.
“It’s really sad and tragic that most all of these are avoidable and preventable,” Fauci said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’ “The overwhelming proportion of people who get into trouble are unvaccinated, which is the reason why we say this is really entirely avoidable and preventable.” Fauci noted, however, that the US is “very fortunate” it has “enough vaccines to vaccinate essentially everybody in the country. And there are people throughout the world who would do anything to get vaccines.”
Fauci cited the reasons for opposition to the vaccine by some Americans, whether it’s “ideological” or whether some “are just fundamentally anti-vax or anti-science.” He said the country does “have the tools to counter” the pandemic and he asked people to “put aside all of those differences and realize that the common enemy is the virus.” The United States has registered over 605,000 deaths in the pandemic, the highest national toll in the world.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 157 million Americans have been fully vaccinated, representing 47.4% of the country’s total population. Dr Rochelle Walensky echoed Fauci’s comments. “Any suffering or death from COVID-19 is tragic. With vaccines available across the country, the suffering and loss we are now seeing is nearly entirely avoidable,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Thursday in urging more Americans to roll up their sleeves ahead of the mutant’s spread.
