Fauci: Vaccine rollout a top priority despite Australia’s ‘effective’ lockdowns

United States’ top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has praised Australia’s handling of the pandemic but says the vaccine rollout must remain a top priority.

In a lecture delivered for the University of New South Wales, Mr. Fauci compared the effectiveness of Australian lockdowns with the management of the virus in the United States. “You had the capability and the uniformity of your citizens that when you shut down, you really shut down very effectively,” he said. Total coronavirus deaths in the United States have reached 555,000, and the nation recorded 80,000 new infections over the weekend.
