Getting people vaccinated only long-term solution to current COVID-19 crisis in India: Dr Anthony Fauci

Getting people vaccinated is the only long-term solution to the current COVID-19 crisis in India, America’s top public health expert Dr Anthony Fauci said yesterday as he called for scaling up manufacturing of coronavirus vaccines both domestically and globally to fight the pandemic.

The 80-year-old physician and immunologist, who serves as the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, the endgame of this Pandemic is going to be to get people vaccinated. He said India is the largest vaccine-producing country in the world and it has to get its resources, not only from within, but also from without.

Fauci, who is the Chief Medical Adviser to US President Joe Biden, told media in an interview, other countries need to chip in to be able to get either supplies to the Indians to make their own vaccines or to get vaccines donated.

One of the ways to do that is to have the big companies that have the capability of making vaccines to really scale up in a great way to get literally hundreds of millions of doses to be able to get to them, he said. Responding to a question, Dr Fauci said that India needs to immediately build makeshift field hospitals.
