US Expert: Eliminating Covid-19 unrealistic, Omicron will infect just about everybody.

United states: Despite soaring cases and record-high Covid-19 hospitalizations, the United States is approaching the “threshold” of transitioning to living with the coronavirus as a manageable disease, Anthony Fauci said Tuesday.

“There’s no way we’re going to eradicate this” virus, he said, given its contagiousness, its propensity to mutate into new variants and the large pool of unvaccinated people.

Those up to date with their vaccines remain well protected against severe outcomes, but vaccine efficacy against infection has fallen.

But “as Omicron goes up and down,” the country will hopefully enter a new phase “where there’ll be enough protection in (the) community, enough drugs available so that when someone does get infected and is in a high risk group, it will be very easy to treat that person,” said Fauci.
