Fauci says he fears a COVID variant worse than Delta could be coming, Fauci also said says COVID-19 cases may double in the U.S
“Quite frankly, we’re very lucky that the vaccines that we have now do very well against the variants, particularly against severe illness,” Fauci said, emphasizing that this might not be the case with a new variant.
