(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: After more than two years, Dr. Anthony Fauci has finally said what many folks have believed for quite some time: The United States of America is “out of the pandemic phase” of COVID-19.
Fauci serves as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President.
Fauci went on national television and asserted that the U.S. is not in the “pandemic stage” of COVID-19, more than two years after the coronavirus began to wreak havoc on the nation.
Judy Woodruff of PBS NewsHour asked Fauci about the status of the virus in America. This comes as many Americans are getting their second booster shot and the mask requirements have been lifted all across the country.
Woodruff asked Fauci: “Here we are. It’s the end of April. It’s the spring of 2022. How close are we to the end of the pandemic?”
Fauci responded: “We are certainly, right now, in this country out of the pandemic phase. Namely, we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now.”
Fauci continued, “So, if you’re saying, are we out of the pandemic phase in this country, we are.”
Still, Fauci urged caution, saying, “We’re not going to eradicate this virus.”
