Fauci Says 'There's No Doubt' US Has Undercounted Covid Deaths

Fauci says there’s ‘no doubt’ that US has undercounted its deaths from COVID-19

Last month, Fauci warned that the USA was on the brink of another COVID-19 surge and said that it would be wrong for Americans to ease up on masking and social distancing just because the country had exceeded its vaccination targets.

About two weeks ago, President Joe Biden promised the U.S. would send help to India in the form of "oxygen-related supplies, vaccine materials, and therapeutics". The U.S. had opposed the waiver, along with pharmaceutical companies, which are concerned about the precedent it would set. "You can't have people out in the street not having a hospital bed", Fauci said. I believe that we will be about as close to back to normal as we can. Fauci replied. "They've done an extraordinary amount. They've really just really done something that is really quite impressive in the way they've gotten their vaccine supply up and out for the rest of the world". "Is the mask going to be something we have with us in a seasonal aspect?"

"The endgame of this all, George, is going to be to get people vaccinated", Fauci said.

Israel stampede: Dozens killed in crush at religious festival in Mount Meron
Ambulance officials described the incident as a stampede and said 103 people had been injured, including dozens fatally. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "heavy disaster" and said he was "praying for the injured".

Dr. Anthony Fauci is urging countries like the United States to step up and help India curb the spread of COVID-19 cases. The country's health care system is teetering on the edge of collapse as hospitals are overcrowded and much-needed medical supplies are in low supply. And where there are not a lot of vulnerable people around, you're not going to see a surge.

The country has officially lost over 581,000 people to the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus - but a University of Washington study released Thursday estimated deaths at more than 900,000. "Is he right?" Stephanopoulos asked.

"We've been saying, and the CDC has been saying all along", Fauci responded, "that it is very likely that we're undercounting". Fauci, however, said that there is "no doubt" that the U.S. has been "undercounting" pandemic death figures and asserted that the true number is much higher.
