Dr. Anthony Fauci said he is frustrated by the resistance of a portion of the American population to vaccination

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the coronavirus task force, said the United States is heading “in the wrong direction” for the pandemic, at a time when coronavirus cases are increasing among the country’s unvaccinated population.

“An epidemic among the unvaccinated is forming in the United States,” Fauci said Sunday (25/7), in an interview with CNN.

“I’m very disappointed,” Fauci said, after the CNN anchor provided data from a poll, noting that 80% of Americans vaccinated so far would, or certainly not, accept the vaccination.

“I don’t like blaming people because it makes them back off more,” the doctor continued. “But I would like to see more (political) leaders from low-vaccinated areas encouraging people to get vaccinated. We need to do better,” he said. People are putting themselves in needless distress” due to the high risk of taking Covid-19 and developing health complications.
