WASHINGTON, Nov 28 – Americans must be prepared to fight the spread of the new Omicron COVID-19, but it remains to be seen what measures will be taken, including possible approval or closure, U.S. Chief Chief Infectious Disease Officer Dr Anthony Fauci said last week.
The United States should do “anything and everything” between cases that may be different, but “it’s too early to say” we need a new lock or authority, Fauci told ABC News.
“You want to be ready to do anything and everything,” he added.
A new version of the Omicron coronavirus, first discovered in South Africa and announced in recent days, has now become available in a growing number of other countries. Learn more
Fauci, in an interview with NBC News on Saturday, said he may be in the United States, although no official case has been confirmed.
U.S. health officials will once again talk to their South African counterparts about the situation later on Sunday, he told ABC News “This Week” on a separate program.
