Fauci warns of COVID 'outbreak among the unvaccinated'

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed COVID-19 is now "an outbreak among the unvaccinated" and called on more Americans to get inoculated in order to prevent a surge in cases.

Asked about current projections on the virus curve during an appearance on CNN, Fauci said the US is "going in the wrong direction."

"If you look at the inflection of the curve of new cases and as you said in the run in to this interview, that it is among the unvaccinated, and since we have 50 percent of the country is not fully vaccinated, that's a problem, particularly when you have a variant, like Delta, which has this extraordinary characteristic of being able to spread very efficiently and very easily from person to person, and we know we have many, many, many vulnerable people in this country who are unvaccinated," the epidemiologist noted.
