Anthony Fauci doesn’t believe coronavirus will ever be eradicated

Dr. Anthony Fauci said he doesn’t believe coronavirus will ever be eradicated — given how quickly the virus spreads among humans.

“I don’t see this disappearing the way SARS 1 did,” Fauci said Wednesday at a livestreamed event hosted by TB Alliance, a nonprofit that researches treatments for tuberculosis.

“The reason I say that is it is so efficient in its ability to transmit from human to human that I think we ultimately will get control of it,”  the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases added. “I don’t really see us eradicating it.”

Fauci said getting the coronavirus pandemic to a manageable point relies on three things.

“I think with a combination of good public health measures, a degree of global herd immunity and a good vaccine — which I do hope and feel cautiously optimistic that we will get — I think when you put all three of those together, I think we will get very good control of this,” he said.
