Fauci Warns that COVID-19 Infection Rates are Likely to Rise
According to White House adviser Anthony Fauci, COVID-19 infection rates in the United States will likely rise in the coming weeks after a dramatic drop following the omicron variant’s rapid spread.
“I would not be surprised if in the next few weeks we see somewhat of either a flattening of our diminution or maybe even an increase,” Fauci told ABC News’ “Start Here,” ABC News reported.
“Whether or not that is going to lead to another surge, a mini-surge or maybe even a moderate surge, is very unclear because there are a lot of other things that are going on right now,” he added.
The number of new cases has recently fallen sharply across the country, with just over 30,000 being reported on average, The Hill report.
