Vaccination only solution to India's Covid crisis: Dr Fauci

May 10, 2021 09:17 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Getting people vaccinated is the only long-term solution to the current Covid-19 crisis in India, America's top public health expert Dr Anthony Fauci said on Sunday. The Chief Medical Adviser to US President Joe Biden called for scaling up manufacturing of coronavirus vaccines both domestically and globally to fight the deadly pandemic.

"The endgame of this going to be to get people vaccinated...India is the largest vaccine-producing country in the world. They've got to get their resources, not only from within, but also from without," Dr Fauci told the ABC News in an interview.

Responding to a question, Dr Fauci said that India needs to immediately build makeshift field hospitals like what China did a year ago.

"You can't have people out in the street not having a hospital bed. To have people not have oxygen is really tragic, what's going on over there," he said.
