America is reaching the threshold of living with the coronavirus, where COVID-19 will be a manageable disease. Top American scientist said this.

Washington:

Despite rising cases of corona and the number of hospitalized infected patients reaching a record level, the US is on the threshold of living with the coronavirus, where Kovid-19 will be a manageable disease. America’s top epidemiologist Anthony Fauci believes so.

Speaking to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) on Tuesday, the top US scientist said that eliminating COVID is not realistic at the moment and “Omicron, with its extraordinary, unprecedented potential, is finally reaching almost everyone.” “

“Given the contagiousness of the virus, the tendency for new variants to mutate and the large number of people not being vaccinated, we are not on track to eradicate the virus,” he said.

Staying up to date on the vaccine front is protected against serious consequences, but the effectiveness of the vaccine against infection is dwindling.

Fauchi said, “But as Omicron’s cases are going up and down. Hopefully the country will enter a new phase “where people will have enough protection against the virus, there will be enough drugs available so that when someone is infected and high Being in an at-risk group, it is much easier to treat that person.”

“When we get there, it is a process of moving from one position to another, we may be on the threshold of that situation,” he said. However, he also said that at present about 10 lakh infection cases are being registered in the country in a day and about 1.5 lakh people are in hospital and more than 1,200 deaths are taking place every day. “Not on that point at the moment.”
