“Even if the measures are over, we can continue to wear a mask”

US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said that Americans can continue to wear masks even if many measures have been lifted.

Fauci, who was a guest on a program on American CNN television, recalled that since the flu epidemic in 1918, there has been a situation unseen in 102 years.

Saying “It is a really terrible situation we are going through”, Fauci stated that in 2022, many more people will be vaccinated and many measures taken against the epidemic will end.

Stating that Americans may still need to wear masks despite this, Fauci stated that new doses may be required depending on how variants will emerge.

Approximately 43 million people in the US have received the first dose of the vaccine to date. Approximately 18 million people received two doses of vaccine. However, those who are vaccinated make up less than 15 percent of the population.
