Dr. Fauci Says Don’t Go Here Even if You Want To

A coronavirus surge is blizzarding the USA, as cases increase from New York to Florida to California and everywhere in-between and experts furiously study the data to determine how severe, or less severe, is the Omicron variant. (Hospitalizations, one deciding metric, are unfortunately still going up, and Delta is still here.) More infections mean more deaths. How can you stay safe? And how should you enjoy this New Year’s? (Regarding big parties you may want to go to, "I would stay away from that," said Dr. Fauci.) Dr. Anthony Fauci , the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared on CNN’s New Day this morning with a message for all Americans. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these Sure Signs You’ve Already Had COVID . Man is lying on bed amidst essential workers. "Are you still expecting a potential surge in nationwide hospitalizations?" asked Kaitlan Collins, the New Day anchor. "Well, we’re certainly gonna continue to see a surge for a while," said Dr. Fauci. "I fully expect that it will turn around. I hope it turns around as sharply as what we’ve seen in South Africa, where I went over the data with South African colleagues a day or two ago. And the increase … turned around rapidly and came down…. So I hope we peak and come down quickly. The other thing that’s going on there is…. that it looks like that the degree of severity of the disease is considerably less than they experience with Delta. We’re seeing inklings of that now in the United States, the UK is also seeing that. So I do hope that we do have the net effect is a demotion in the degree of severity, but the sheer volume of cases that we’re seeing now—yesterday, we had 214,000 cases. Even with the demotion and severity, we still could have a surge on hospitals, particularly among the unvaccinated, which that we’re really worried about."
