President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci argued this week that receiving a coronavirus vaccine does not mean people should skip measures aimed at preventing the spread.
The story: Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a press briefing on Monday at the White House that it’s too early for people to go back to normal even if they have been vaccinated, according to Business Insider. He specifically suggested avoiding going to the theatre or dining outside even if the person in question has received two full doses of the vaccine.
What he said: “There are things, even if you’re vaccinated, that you’re not going to be able to do in society,” Fauci said during the coronavirus press briefing on Monday. “For example, indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate … That’s because of the safety of society. Because the burden of virus in society will be very high – which it is right now.”
“I still do not do dining indoors and I still do takeout,” Fauci added.”I want to continue to support the restaurants in my neighborhood that I would normally go to … We are still at an unacceptably high baseline level.”
Fauci explained that Americans will be able to get rid of mandatory masking and other pandemic-related measures once the majority of the population is immunized.
“If you combine getting most of the people in the country vaccinated with getting the level of virus in the community very, very low, then I believe you are going to be able to say you know for the most part we don’t necessarily have to wear masks,” Fauci said. “When it goes way down, and the overwhelming majority of the people in the population are vaccinated, then I would feel comfortable in saying you know we need to pull back on the masks, we don’t need to have masks.”
In a Sunday interview, Fauci said Americans may need to wear masks until 2022.
Why? It is still unclear whether individuals who have received a vaccine can spread the disease to unvaccinated people. Also, getting vaccinated does not guarantee that the person will develop no symptoms.
Meanwhile, The View‘s Meghan McCain said she is “over Dr. Fauci” after he did not say during an appearance on CNN if vaccinates grandparents should spend time with their grandchildren.
“I think we need to have more people giving more opinions and honestly, quite frankly, I think the Biden administration should remove [Fauci] and put someone else in place that maybe does understand science, or can talk to other countries about how we can be more like these places who are doing this successfully,” McCain said.
