Dr. Fauci Gives Estimate on How Much Longer We’ll Be Wearing Masks

Oh boy…

First, the good news:  The general consensus seems to be that the coronavirus pandemic’s days are numbered.  The rollout of several effective vaccines continues, and the numbers of cases and deaths continues to trend in the right direction.

The bad news is simply that we’re not out of the woods yet, and might not be for some time still.

The controversial Dr. Anthony Fauci recently weighed in on how long he thinks that we may still need to be wearing masks.

Asked if Americans should expect to still be wearing masks into next year, Fauci said: “I think it is possible that that’s the case,” adding that it depended on the level of the virus in communities and potential virus variants.

“Obviously, I think we are going to have a significant degree of normality beyond the terrible burden that all of us have been through over the last year,” Fauci said.

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, Fauci said it was too soon to pinpoint when the United States might reach herd immunity.

“We want to get that baseline really, really, really low before we start thinking that we’re out of the woods.”

Fauci has often erred on the side of caution, of course, often putting him at odds with the eternally optimistic Donald Trump during his time on the White house coronavirus task force.
