Fauci says "we're going to have to start living with COVID"

Fauci said this current infection level is “unacceptable.”

“I mean, we’ve heard people say, understandably, they’re trying to look for a metric to give to the public that we’re going to have to start living with COVID. I believe that’s the case because I don’t think we’re going to eradicate it. We’ve only eradicated one infection of mankind, and that’s smallpox. I don’t think we’re even going to eliminate it,” the infectious disease expert said.

Fauci said illnesses — such as malaria, polio and measles — have become nearly nonexistent through “a very, very, very intensive vaccine campaign.”
