Dr Fauci's prescription for India: Lockdown, mass vaccination

May 04, 2021 07:32 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Expressing concern over surging coronavirus cases in India, America’s top public health expert and White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr Anthony Fauci on Monday recommended a nationwide lockdown, massive vaccination drive and the construction of a large number of makeshift hospitals.

“It is quite obvious to everyone that the situation in India is extremely serious," Dr Fauci, who is considered one of the world’s top infectious disease specialists, told PTI in an interview.

His prescription: First, vaccinate as many people as possible. However, getting people vaccinated doesn't solve the immediate problem, Dr Fauci said, adding that a lockdown is needed to break the virus chain in the short run.

He also recommended taking the help of the armed forces to immediately build makeshift field hospitals.
