Fauci does not expect new lockdowns in US

United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that he does not expect the reinstatement of countrywide lockdown measures despite the dominance of the coronavirus Delta strain among all new infections.

Appearing on ABC News, Fauci stressed he believes enough people have been vaccinated "to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter."

However, the US top infectious disease expert warned that the number of inoculated individuals is "not enough to crush the outbreak" and that he expects "some pain and suffering in the future" due to COVID-19.
