- Advisory panel dealt blow to Biden with Friday verdict
- Million deaths avoidable if vaccinations increase, adviser says
- Vaccinations among Latinos rise thanks to community outreach
A decision not to recommend third-shot booster vaccinations for most Americans is “not the end of the story”, White House chief medical adviser Dr Anthony Fauci insisted on Sunday, two days after a scientific panel appeared to turn the Biden administration’s plan for combating coronavirus on its head.
Fauci also said he did not believe a million coronavirus deaths in the US was an inevitability, despite the Delta variant-fuelled surge that last week brought the grim milestone of one in 500 Americans having fallen victim to the pandemic.
