Fauci, it’s too early to tell if Omicron is ending the pandemic-Bloomberg

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), will determine whether the Omicron variant of the new coronavirus will signal a transition from a corona pandemic to an endemic. He said that it was premature. He is President Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor.

“We still don’t know if Omicron will be the live vaccine that everyone wants,” Fauci said at an online conference on the Davos Agenda hosted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) yesterday.

He also pointed out, “I don’t want to fall into a situation where each mutant strain is dealt with on an ad hoc basis like a whac-a-mole game. In such a situation, it is necessary to develop a booster for a specific mutant strain.” “We will be chasing Corona permanently,” he said.
