Too soon to say if omicron is final wave of pandemic – Fauci

Anthony Fauci said that it is too soon to say whether omicron is the final wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, writes The Hill.

The White House chief medical adviser, while speaking at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda online conference, said that “it is an open question whether it will be the live virus vaccination that everyone is hoping for”, according to CNBC.

“I would hope that that’s the case. But that would only be the case if we don’t get another variant that eludes the immune response of the prior variant”, - he added.

Fauci’s comments come a week after Europe"s top medical product regulation agency said that the COVID-19 omicron variant may be pushing the pandemic into becoming endemic.
