Dr Anthony Fauci offered a grim picture of the coronavirus pandemic, telling students on Tuesday that between 300,000 and 400,000 people could die from the disease in the United States

Speaking at a virtual event hosted by the American University, the White House coronavirus specialist said: « If we don’t do what we need in the fall and winter, we might have between 300,000 and 400,000 deaths from Covid-19 « , according to extracts tweeted by the school

More than 200,000 people have died from the disease in the United States, and more than 7 million have been diagnosed with it A study from the University of Washington found in August that up to 300,000 people could die from the disease by December 1

Fauci added that a vaccine will likely not be widely available until next summer or fall.This schedule is in line with a prediction by CDC Director Robert Redfield, who warned the Senate Appropriations Committee on last month that it would take about six to nine months to vaccinate the public once a vaccine is approved

Moncef Slaoui, the scientific chief of the government program which is rushing into vaccine development, wrote in August that 300 million doses of vaccine could be available by the middle of next year

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also told the New Yorker Festival on Monday that normal life may not resume until the end of 2021 due to challenges with vaccine distribution

During his speech at the AU, Fauci also spoke of recent public skepticism towards him Although numerous polls over the summer have revealed overwhelming bipartisan trust in the infectious disease expert, confidence in him has since started to wane, especially among Republicans

« Maybe 50% of you hate me because you think I’m trying to destroy the country, but listen to me for about six weeks, and do as I say, and you’ll see the numbers lower »Fauci said, according to the university
