Dr. Anthony Fauci Says People Must Assess Their Own COVID-19 Risk

HeadlineApr 11, 2022

Here in the United States, New York Mayor Eric Adams has tested positive for the coronavirus. Last week he attended the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, D.C. At least 67 attendees of the event have now tested positive, including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. On Sunday, top White House adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said it is now up to individuals to assess their own COVID risk. He spoke on ABC’s “This Week.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci: “This is not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated. And what’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take in going to indoor dinners and going to functions.”
