“Well, unfortunately … I think it will happen,” Fauci replied to CNN’s State of the Union.

“We will see a significant burden on the hospital system in some regions of the country, especially in those regions where you have low vaccination rates, which is one of the reasons why we continue to emphasize the importance of vaccinating those who have not been vaccinated. people are vaccinated, ”added Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
