Dr. Anthony Fauci quickly walked back his prediction Monday that in one year, by the fall of 2022, the United States can get control of COVID-19.
During an appearance on CNN, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser offered an apology, claiming he misspoke and meant to say that ideal is within reach by the spring of 2022, but only if people holding out on getting vaccines decide to get the jab.
"No, Anderson, I have to apologize," he told anchor Anderson Cooper. "When I listened to the tape, I meant to say the spring of 2022, so I did misspeak. And in the conversation with Mary Louise Kelly, she was saying, when do I think we can get some control? I said if we can get through this winter and get really the overwhelming majority of the 90 million people who have not been vaccinated, vaccinated, I hope we could start to get some good control in the spring of 2022. I didn't mean the fall. I misspoke, my bad."
Earlier, on NPR, Fauci made the comment about the fall of 2022. He said it was contingent on widespread vaccinations, a contentious issue lingering more than eight months after the jabs became available to the public, as the more contagious delta variant causes a new spike in cases and health officials push for booster shots.
"If all things go the way we want them to go," Fauci, longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, began in a quote aired on CNN, "and we get really the overwhelming majority of people vaccinated. I think as we get into the fall and winter, we could start to really get some good control over this as we get back into the fall of 2022."

YOU ALL MUST OBEY!!!
Every time he opens his mouth we are presented with a fresh ration of bullshit!
Can no one rid us of this meddlesome bureaucrat?
Did he just advance his prediction by six months by way of “apology?” He now thinks it will be “under control” in the _spring_ of 2022 and not the _fall_ of 2022 (which would be six months after the spring)?
Not that I trust him. Just trying to see if what I’m reading is what others are.
Any chance we can get him to check on the covid situation in Kabul...personally?
If you don’t get the shot they will be forced to rig another election.
(they are going to rig it anyway)
Keywords some control. Because he’s trying to give people an incentive to get the vaccinated. After the Spring if 100% aren’t vaccinated he can change the timeline again. He also says he does not know and only “thinks” to give himself an out.

What would we expect that our war with Covid? Do we not have the best medical resources? the most money? the best equipment? There’s no way we’d spend years just grinding without any clear exit plan to end up with the same threat from Covid at the end of it as there was at the start?
