USA: COVID infections in US 'might' be 'plateauing' says Fauci

United States, Washington DC
January 22, 2021 at 01:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

Chief Medical Advisor to the US President Anthony Fauci said that COVID infections in the US 'might' be 'plateauing' at a press conference in Washington DC on Thursday.

"When you look more recently at the seven day average of cases, remember we were going between three and four hundred thousand and two and three hundred thousand, right now it looks it might actually be plateauing in the sense of turning round. Now there's good news in that but you have to be careful that we may not be seeing perhaps an artefact, an artefact of the slowing down following the holidays," said Fauci who also acts as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the US.

United States has registered as many as 24,323,846 COVID-19 cases and 404,689 related deaths according to data compiled by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
