Coronavirus: Dr. Fauci predicts when we’ll return to normal – Deseret News

Dr. Anthony Fauci recently said in an online discussion that the United States could return to “some semblance of normality” by 2021 or 2022 — if a COVID-19 vaccine works out.

What’s going on?

The Los Angeles Times reports that Fauci said during a virtual discussion with the University of Melbourne that the future of the country could be normal if enough people take the coronavirus vaccine.

  • “I think it will be easily by the end of 2021 — and perhaps even into the next year — before we start having some semblance of normality,” he said.

He could also see a future where restaurants never get to full capacity and people have to wear face masks indoors.

Fauci said wearing masks may be more common moving forward as it has been in place before the pandemic began, according to The Los Angeles Times.
