Where is Dr. Anthony Fauci today?
On Sunday, November 28, 2021, Dr. Anthony Fauci opened up to ABC's This Week about the Omicron variant, saying that it's "too early to say" whether or not another lockdown is in the future.
“Inevitably, it will be here. The question is will we be prepared for it? If and when, and it’s going to be when, it comes here hopefully we will be ready for it,” Fauci continued.
First discovered in South Africa, the Omicron variant has mutations that can allow the virus to enter the body.
