The "sea of lies" about COVID and vaccines can be overcome by people's "better angels" says Fauci, and protect the world from a more deadly virus.
The epidemic in the United States could be ended once and for all if everyone would get vaccinated, Fauci said. Barring that, he worries we're in it for the long term.
The unvaccinated will continue to get sick and some will die. The young and healthy are statistically not likely to become seriously ill if infected, but they don't live in a vacuum, he said. The more people who are infected, the more chance the virus has to mutate into an even more dangerous variant.
