A professor from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is pushing back against headline-grabbing claims that top White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci made earlier this week declaring it is “too soon to tell” if Americans can gather for Christmas this year.
Last weekend, Fauci made his gloomy determination while speaking with CBS’ Face the Nation.
“We’ve just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time,” he also said. “Let’s focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down. And we can do it by people getting vaccinated and also in the situation where boosters are appropriate to get people boosted.”
Dr. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins, however, begs to differ.
Speaking with Fox & Friends on Monday, Dr. Makary said that Fauci is not accurately presenting the state of COVID-19 infections in the United States.
“We’re going to be in a much better place in a couple of weeks or maybe by November at the latest,” Makary told the hosts of the Fox News program, as The Western Journal reported.
“Cases are down 35 percent, and we’ve always known this delta virus is so contagious. It’s burning through that last segment of the population with no natural or vaccinated immunity,” he also said. “By December, almost every adult will have had COVID or vaccination.”
He explained that Dr. Fauci was using language that included “an implicit denial that we’re moving from an epidemic to an endemic phase, that is, we’ve got to learn to live with it.”
What’s more, he explained, “We’ve got over 90 percent of seniors vaccinated. The risk is not equally distributed in the population, and that’s what they fail to communicate.”
