Fauci: Vaccine might not get US sufficient level of immunity

Fauci: Vaccine might not get US sufficient level of immunity 1


Dr. Anthony Fauci says he would "settle" for a Covid-19 vaccine that's 70% to 75% effective, but that this incomplete protection, coupled with the fact that many Americans say they won't get a coronavirus vaccine, makes it "unlikely" that the US will achieve sufficient levels of immunity to quell the outbreak.

    As more time goes by more things will come to the light 👍

  2. No shirt, no shoes, no service – not a peep. No mask: Constitutional hissy fit.

    • @Troy DiEdwardo _’The apparent mortality rate is about %.03..’_ The only way you get a rate that low is if you do something truly idiotic like divide the death rate by the entire US population. That’s not how mortality rates work. If you do the same thing with influenza *COVID-19 still has around 4 times the mortality rate* , in *four months* versus a year for influenza. Come on, man…THINK.
      _’Check out Thomas Sowell, Jordan Peterson and David Icke…’_ Sowell is the only one on the list with a hint of credibility and he’s a conservative hack.
      Peterson and Icke are proof that you don’t seem to do much by the way of critical thinking. FFS, Icke thinks we’ve been invaded by shape-shifting lizard people from outer space.

      @Tommy Devine You can’t breathe with a mask on. Not in the heat.

    • Tommy Devine | June 29, 2020 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      @Cuomo Primetime it’s a little less comfortable yes, but your breathing isn’t hindered… Also, if you’re social distant outdoors, a mask isn’t really necessary as the virus hasn’t been proven to significantly spread in those conditions.

  4. That chat about the vaccine wasn’t encouraging.

  5. The planet needs a vaccine from humans.

      @Sonique Cat Good theory, but unlikely. Viruses are fundamentally selfish organisms (they’re not alive i know), which reproduce to sustain their own biological needs.

    • @Mr. Greatness Well – we should get rid of the Nazis in the White House and at Fox News. Getting rid of the Nazis like you is also a good idea.
      Labeling a right wing media like CNN as communist is beyond laughable.

    It seems so strange – I live in South Australia , where covid 19 has been virtually eliminated. The populace were compliant with all the guidelines. Businesses are reopening, including bars, sporting events and schools. An opportunity has been lost in the US and it is difficult seeing a way of putting the “ genie back in the bottle”.

    • Gundis Rambo | June 29, 2020 at 6:39 PM | Reply

      Dawn Bowers omg really? They compare the US to the EU. Now that is very much comparable, the EU was hit much harder earlier, and now they have their cases down, even after reopening… You have got to be a very very slow thinker.

      @American Patriot Greetings from Germany. I have a different opinion – not only ‘you’ (the Americans?) but everyone doesn´t know enough about the virus. In my opinion in times of such a pandemic there shouldn´t be an ‘us’ and ‘they’. But in the meantime the scientists know how it is transferred, namely through the air as an aerosol. Also in my opinion it isn’t a weapon but a diesease like the plague, the flu, lepra and so on. Maybe it could be used as a biological weapon like anthrax but there are a lot of other possible ways to kill each other. Back to the pandemic, the biggest problem is that currently there isn´t a vaccine or a medication. The symptoms can be alleviated as good as possible but that’s all.
      Conceded if you weren´t in NYC (or Italy, Spain, Brazil…) and haven’t seen the refrigerated vans with dead people by yourself of course you don’t know if it´s true. But there are families who lost their relatives. Also the question is why should anybody have the goal to tell you or better us(worldwide) the untruth. It needs to be a global conspiracy of heads of states (who partly hate each other, e.g. US, Iran, Russia…), press agencies (who partly dislike their competitors, e.g. FOX & the others), scientists, doctors and nurses, normal people and so on and so forth. Impossible.
      Also who should have any profit of this farce? Neither your government nor their opponents (the Democrats), neither a certain country e.g. Russia, China, Iran nor the US or other countries. In the UN they all together are incapable to agree on the simplest decisions but they agree on ‘a pandemic, numbers and death toll’? Impossible.
      In the same way an agreement between all press agencies from right to left, in every country, worldwide? Impossible.
      I think, the opposite is the case, some leaders of different countries would like to trivialize the reports of the media because bad news are bad for their reelection. But luckily there is a free press (no matter which one you like – CNN, FOX, abc or anything else) and I´m absolutely not sure if e.g. the people in Turkey or similar countries get halfway decent information since most of their press has been forced into line.

    We Americans are playing; “Whack A Mole” you hit one mole (cova-19 outbreak) then another one pops up (Florida, Texas, California) and on it goes.

  8. all went back to the so call ‘ leader ‘ that doesn’t lead

  9. The funniest thing is that trump said everyone wants to go back to work. However, most infections have been because of rise in bar, beach, pool and restaurant visits. So much for Americans wanting to return to work.

      Cases aren’t as important as serious harm or deaths – solely due to this novel, lab-built vaccine

    • touchtoomuch1000 | June 29, 2020 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      That’s not true. There is far more testing being done since people were able to go for routine doctors visits. There also far less deaths. Texas was said to have a surge but had just 27 deaths. The virus is far less deadly than they say.

    • Mars Boyo: That’s why it’s rising again, fast..opening up, too quick. We’re paying for it. It hasn’t even started to get worse yet.

    • Tulsa’s spike is already back down. https://www.tulsa-health.org/COVID19 Not a non issue…just stay clean, wear mask where it makes sense ( mainly around elderly ) and don’t be right in people’s faces or hugging all over people you don’t know…. You can fix most of your risk of getting COVID by not being dumb. Btw The regular flu can be asymptomatic too.

  10. There will be no economy if the government ignores the coronovirus– just increased deaths and lots of mental illness.Trump is ignoring the virus.America is not great,it’s a mess.

      How can u want yo build the economy with all these sick unemployed ppl. They need to have a vaccine for his stupidity.

    • @jessica Cloud9 And then what?

    • @RanGam 74 Wrong. Statistics proove that the protests almost had no effect on the virus spread. Some of the largest protests took place in areas like New York where the infection numbers are falling.
      However – the spikes happen in places where the economy is reopening too quickly and especially in areas where people think it is ok to cramp together in huge crowds with literally no protection on beaches and in bars.
      On top of that businesses do not care for their employees, providing absolutely no protection.
      Besides – every mask helps to reduce the spread of the virus, but maybe that’s beyond the capabilities of understanding facts of racists and white supremicists like you who support killer cops.

    • Ann P: That’s what I tried to tell my friends voting for Trump in ’16. We were in for trouble if he got in office. Now see what’s happened.

  11. How can people know what to do when their leaders are sending out mixed messages?

    • andrew winkenwerder | June 29, 2020 at 7:30 PM | Reply

      RanGam 74 if protests caused a spike in cases then we would see a spike in every major city in the nation. And that has not happened. The evidence shows that outdoor protests have had little effect on the COVID caseload

    • Hambone Jones | June 29, 2020 at 8:07 PM | Reply

      @andrew winkenwerder Hasn’t happened *yet, and regardless of that, we’ll never know now anyway: contact tracers were deliberately instructed not to ask people if they attended George Floyd protests. If you don’t happen to believe me, I would advise you to look it up and see for yourself.

    • Exept this they hide

    • Use common sense, turn off the news, and go live your life. Your welcome

    • stop letting the “leaders” do the thinking for you and start thinking for yourself…it isn’t illegal…yet.

      @Kaliani K Healthcare workers get the first round (because they’re dropping like flies. Masks are faulty at best.) The rest follows or perhaps all of the above at once.

  16. It’s not the vaccine that’s the problem. It’s the idiocy of the Trump voting population. 🙂

  17. The moment the government realized most of the fatalities would be elderly and people of color(many with health issues)..the decision was silently made to go with the herd immunity strategy.

  18. In public, everyone should wear a mask. Some of you should also wear a gag.

  19. Fauci: america’s doctor. Trump: america’s insane asylum escapee.

  20. The US is on the way of being a failed state.
