Fauci: 99.2% of US COVID-19 deaths involved unvaccinated people

Finding it very difficult these days to muster up any sympathy for people who have had access to a vaccine but have just refused to get it.

WASHINGTON – America’s top infectious disease expert said about 99.2% of recent COVID-19 deaths in the United States involved unvaccinated people. “It’s really sad and tragic that most all of these are avoidable and preventable,” he added.

He told NBC’s “Meet the Press” it’s frustrating “where you have a formidable enemy” in the coronavirus and “yet we do have a countermeasure that’s highly, highly effective. And that’s the reason why it’s all the more sad and all the more tragic why it isn’t being completely implemented in this country.”
