Here’s what he said.
According to CNS News, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that they cannot focus on herd immunity because “nobody even knows what that number is.”
Fauci said, “So, what I have been saying is, instead of worrying about, are we or are we not going to get this elusive number, let’s get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can.”
He added, “And the one thing that I will guarantee, because we know this as a fact, not as a hypothesis, but, as a fact, that the more people you get vaccinated, the more and more the infection rate is going to go down. We have seen that with other infections. And we have seen that with other countries.”
He continued, “I mean, I gave a press conference a week or so ago where we showed the data from Israel is that, as the vaccination numbers went up, the infections came right down. So, that’s what we want to do. We want to do as many people vaccinated as we possibly can, and not focus on an elusive number that nobody even knows what that number is.” You can read the full article here.
