Urging people to get vaccinated, Fauci said that the Delta variant, first identified from India, is clearly more transmissible

The country has about 50 per cent of the adult population that is fully vaccinated, while about 66-67 per cent of the adult population have at least one dose

The “disparity in the willingness to be vaccinated” has created “almost two types of America”, Fauci said

If you look at the number of deaths, about 99.2% of them are unvaccinated. About 0.8% are vaccinated: Fauci

Over 99% Covid-related deaths in US were preventable by vaccine: Fauci

As many as 99.2 per cent of Covid-related deaths in the US were avoidable and preventable with vaccinations, the country’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has said. In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Fauci said that vaccine response among people can be varied and some who are vaccinated may still get into trouble, get hospitalised and die, but the overwhelming proportion of people who get into trouble are the unvaccinated.
