“A particular importance that you’ll be hearing about likely within the next few days to a week are the results from the Johnson, J&J trail,” Fauci said.
What did Dr Fauci say about the vaccines and the Covid variants?
“We will get a good feel from those, I hope, I believe we will, we’ll let the data speak for itself, but what we will see was the relative efficacy against the wild type virus that is predominantly in the United States.
“As well as the South African isolate, which in fact it’s something that we’ll be able to get a feel for the efficacy there.
“So we’ll have some comparative efficacy, which will inform us on where we would go if the eventuation occurs that we do have that particular lineage that would seed itself in the United States,” Fauci said.
