It was quickly reported that the epidemic was quiet enough for families to gather at Christmas this year, Drs. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
Fauci, making a Sunday interview to show the rotation, said on CBS News’ “Face the World” that Americans are beginning to look to reduce the number of new infections and hospitals. The best way to do that: Vaccion and booster shots, he said.
“We just have to focus on continuing to drop these numbers and not try to jump ahead with weeks or months and say what we will do at another time,” Fauci said. “Let’s look at it as a calculator going forward to get those issues settled.”
Speaking at ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci noted that hospital treatment related to coronavirus and average daily incidence dropped by more than 30 percent in the past month.
“We’re turning the corner,” Fauci said. “But we’ve got information about now for about 20 months the surges go up and down, and then we go back up again.”

► New Mexico State University says less than a third of its students have given evidence of ECOVID vaccination at the end of this week, although it is unclear how many plan to submit a weekly checkup. In contrast, about 70% of the university staff listened. Failure to receive medication or weekly check-ups may lead to suspension.
► Alaska currently has three hospitals operating in crisis mode amid an increase in COVID-19 agents. Laws that allow hospitals to be provided with care and resources are expanded to narrow.

► American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and JetBlue have recently announced that they will require workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The airlines provide assistance to the government and see themselves as civil servants covered under President Joe Biden’s drug protection law.

70% goal of prevention cannot achieve it; 90% may be required
The country’s 70% target of vaccination, once considered an important step in eradicating the epidemic, may be unattainable due to the high prevalence of delta, some health officials say.
“Currently we need 85 to 90% vaccination,” said Dr. Eric Topol, assistant director of research at Scripps Research in La Jolla, California, and an international expert in data usage in medical research.
Tom McCarthy, director general of the Rhode Island Department of Health COVID Response Unit, says the virus epidemic had changed the game in his county. New England is home to five counties with the highest percentage of victims. But hospitals and deaths go much closer to the front of the prevention.
“What we have learned with the delta and looking beyond the delta, is … to give you the exact same amount of maintenance, you have to be more than 90%,” McCarthy said.
Cattle defense? Maybe we are settled to settle
The hope for COVID-19, experts say, is that the epidemic will be eradicated, and the virus will be one of the world’s most widespread viruses, causing disease and death. It has been predicted that the virus will continue to sweep through the population during the winter, infecting others but often transmitting the disease only to the elderly, those with compromised immune systems, and pregnant women who have not been vaccinated, said Dr. Gregory Poland, editor in chief of the Vaccine magazine.
“Once we get to the point where everyone is exposed or vaccinated and if – and it’s serious if – COVID is acting like other respiratory diseases, it could be a treatable disease,” said Jeffrey Shaman, a gynecologist at Columbia University.

New York hospitals fire workers in check for 50-country licenses
New York is giving the world a first glimpse of what the Biden regime is a 50-nation government-mandated health workers. Empire State hospitals have fired or suspended many staff members for failing to meet deadlines last week that required them to get their first shot of CCVID-19.
To anticipate job losses from front-line health workers leaving or being fired, health systems from New York City rise to delays in non-emergency services, cutting clinic time and paying travel nurses up to $ 200 per hour to fill vacant shifts. Dismissed represented a small percentage of employees at major health systems.
President Joe Biden last month announced that all hospitals taking Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement should be paid to their employees. The agency that oversees those health care plans has not yet announced information on when the national permit will take effect. Read more.

The judge charges a lawsuit against hospitals’ COVID-19 prevention law
A court judge in Cincinnati has strongly criticized lawyers seeking to block the COVID-19 patent in five local hospitals, saying they had lied and supported “unsupported organizational teachings.” Judge Timothy Black refused to close down hospital groups to prevent workers from getting treatment. The permit went into effect on both of them on Friday. False data show COVID-19 continues to destroy the environment. He noted that in the last seven days of China in Hamilton County, there had been 244 cases, 177 new hospitals and 10 deaths.
“Death can be prevented. Next month people are still dying, ”said Black. “Contrary to this data, the plaintiffs are falsely claiming unsubstantiated false teachings.”
