Fauci on 1 million U.S. Covid deaths: “Many of those were avoidable if people had been vaccinated” [Video]
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
- The White House marked a tragic milestone in U.S. history — 1 million COVID-19 deaths.
- Dr. Anthony Fauci described it as a “very sad and tragic landmark.”
- Fauci said that “many of those deaths were avoidable… if people had been vaccinated.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday that the COVID-19 death toll of 1 million people in the U.S. is a “very sad and tragic landmark.” The country’s top infectious disease expert added that “many of those deaths were avoidable.”
“I mean, the idea of 1 million deaths in an outbreak, that is historic in nature. We have had nothing like this in well over 104 years. One of the parts about it that adds to the tragedy is that many of those deaths were avoidable, avoidable if people had been vaccinated,” Fauci said in an interview with PBS.
The doctor told Amna Nawaz, “It’s estimated that, if people had been vaccinated to a much greater extent right now, that vaccines would have avoided at least a quarter of those deaths, namely about 250,000.”
Fauci still recommends that Americans should not let their guard down. He reiterated a previous warning that the U.S. could possibly face a surge in COVID-19 cases between the fall and winter.
“There is a threat and a likelihood that we’ll see a surge as we get into the fall and the winter. So we’ve got to be prepared. And we’ve got to be prepared with vaccinations, with boosters, with optimizing the therapy,” Fauci said.
When asked what more the Biden administration could do to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci said health experts are still continuing to urge the unvaccinated to get the shots. Biden’s top medical adviser noted that the government is working to make COVID-19 treatments more available and accessible to every American.
Currently, Congress is stalled over COVID-19 funding as the White House warns about the urgency to keep up with vaccinations and boosters.
There’s a threat that the U.S. could face risks such as shortages of tests, vaccines and COVID-19 treatments if Congress cannot come to an agreement. The funds are also needed for new potential breakthrough treatments.
In his interview, Fauci stressed that Congress has to pass new COVID-19 funding.
“First of all, we won’t have enough antivirals. We won’t be able to develop newer and better antivirals. We won’t be able to have a booster for everyone, and we will not be able to get the best possible boosters,” he said, outlining how the U.S. could be impacted without proper pandemic funding.

Faker Fauci just wants more money in HIS pockets! He is already “ predicting” a surge in covid cases, just in time for the mid-term elections! How stupid does he think we are? He has lied the whole time about this virus, the vaccines, etc. and—- he is lying now, just to spread more covid panic so the demonrats can boost mail in voting, giving them more opportunity to stuff ballot boxes and steal ANOTHER election! People, don’t be good by that A- hole and his “ dire predictions”, don’t fall for the panic mongering he is so good at!

that’s false because we (meaning the Dr’s, our fake government, and Fauci) really didn’t tell the truth about who really died from covid and who from medical complications. You’re right, Patti, Fauci just wants more money and MORE power and to proceed with their great experiment to see how far they can go against our consitution.

Why doesn’t Fauci talk about how many more fewer deaths there would have been if the truly safe and effective drugs like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine had been used in early treatment as a protocol instead of banned so people could be killed and maimed by his unsafe and ineffective “vaccines” for which the definition of vaccine had to be changed to include MRNA gene therapy that has never been fully tested and has to be mandated to get people to submit to its risks? Just wondering?

The more vaccinations America gets, the more royalties Fauci gets. Fauci is just as corrupt as Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe. It’s to be expected. Fauci is a Democrat. Fauci voted for Swamp Queen crooked Hillary. let’s keep the corruption in the family. Try this on for Size. Corrupt Quid Pro to the president of the corrupt Ukrainian govt., If one doesn’t fire the prosecutor, looking into corruption that involves my son coke head hunter, Ukraine doesn’t get the billion dollars in aid, if you don’t like it call Obama, obviously Marxist Obama was in on it. Fast Forward. Big Pharma to Dr. Fauci. One doesn’t get the royalties unless America gets the vaccinations.
