Anthony Fauci, almost 2 years later, didn't believe the COVID-19 pandemic would last this long

Dr. Anthony Fauci said that it is "unprecedented," how long the COVID-19 Pandemic has lasted worldwide. Many countries have experienced multiple major waves since March 2020, when it was declared.


In an interview with Rosemary Barton Live, Fauci, who is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to U.S. President Joe Biden said that pandemics generally consist of one "big burst of infection" and then decline.


Rosemary Barton, chief political correspondent at CBC, said that he did not believe it would last so long.


"We are seeing multiple countries, including the U.S.A. have at least three to four surges of infection. This is a truly unprecedented situation in terms of pandemics.


As cases rise in many countries, concerns are rising again. Researchers also attempt to determine if a new variant of omicron is more transmissible than the ones already known.

Canada is experiencing an increase in new cases every day, with the majority of growth occurring in Ontario and Quebec.


Fauci stated that the United States still faces an "unacceptably high" level of infections. The average number of new cases per seven days is more than 120,000.
