Fauci: if the vaccine is available the country could return to normal life in 2021

The chief US epidemiologist stressed that the process would be gradual in any case.

Completing work on a coronavirus vaccine could allow the US to return to “really normal life” in 2021, according to the country’s chief epidemiologist, Anthony Fauci.

“As for the prospects for 2021… I think if a successful vaccine is available and the vast majority of the population is vaccinated, we can start talking about a return to a normal life,” Fauci said in an interview with CNN.” But this process will be gradual”.

According to Fauci, pharmaceutical companies working on the vaccine say they can produce “tens of millions of doses in early 2021 and up to hundreds of millions of doses in the following months”.
