Dr. Fauci Warns Omicron Variant Will ‘Find Just About Everybody’

As Omicron spreads through the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci says it’s likely that almost everybody will be exposed to the strain at some point. Fauci told the Senior Vice President of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, J. Stephen Morrison, that  “Omicron, with its extraordinary, unprecedented degree of efficiency of transmissibility, will ultimately find just about everybody.” And that “those who have been vaccinated … and boosted would get exposed. Some, maybe a lot of them, will get infected but will very likely, with some exceptions, do reasonably well in the sense of not having hospitalization and death.” Across the country, as least one in five Americans are not vaccinated against Covid-19 and more than 62% of the country has been fully vaccinated but only 23% are fully vaccinated and boosted according to data from the CDC.
