Dr. Anthony Fauci: ‘We have not yet seen the post-Thanksgiving peak’

08:58

Amid record-breaking numbers of coronavirus cases and deaths across the U.S., Dr. Anthony Fauci tells TODAY, “We’re in a very precarious situation right now. There is light at the end of the tunnel with a vaccine, but we’re not there yet.” He warns that “we have not yet seen the post-Thanksgiving peak” and urges people to wear masks and avoid congregating indoors: “Now is the time to hang in there.” He says he said “yes right on the spot” when President-elect Biden asked him to join his team and endorses the idea of celebrities getting vaccinated publicly: “We really do have to get as many people vaccinated as possible.”
