(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Speaking to CNN’s “The Lead” on Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that any further deaths from COVID-19 in the United States are now a particular tragedy as further deaths can be prevented by more people taking the COVID-19 vaccine. He said that the deaths are avoidable, no matter what COVID-19 variant people die from.
It’s that latter part that is truly interesting here. The issue of the “Delta” variant of the virus, also known as the India variant, is controversial. Many public health officials have argued that the variant may be resistant to the COVID-19 vaccine, and in the United Kingdom it has quickly become the dominant variant of the virus nationally.
“News” anchor Jake Tapper reminded Fauci how he claimed that the Delta variant of the virus is the biggest threat to progress in defeating the virus, and asked that if that’s the case, whether it would be possible to eliminate the threat from the new variant by getting more people vaccinated.
Dr. Fauci, who is still the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as a lead government advisor on the pandemic, said that having a large number of people not vaccinated means that the virus is going to spread “more efficiently” and cause “more serious disease.”
But he didn’t specify whether the Delta variant may be resistant to the vaccine or not.
Fauci said that the reason the government is pulling out all the stops and encouraging as many people as possible to get the vaccine is because the “overwhelming” number of people dying from the virus are people who have not taken the vaccine.
But with an increasing number of stories of people falling sick with COVID-19 after taking the vaccine…many Americans are likely to have some questions about that.
