“There is no reason to panic, but we should be vigilant. That means getting vaccinated. Be promoted. Please wear a mask indoors,” he said.
“There is more panic than information surrounding this new variant. … I think we can communicate so we can avoid any outages, we can avoid closing our schools or businesses. None of us want to see that happen.”
White House Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Faucice said that none of the people who came into contact with the patient tested positive.
He added: “We are delighted that this patient not only has mild symptoms but is indeed improving.
Fauci took the opportunity to tell Americans to wear mask in public places.
“You can feel safe not wearing a mask and having dinner or reception,” he said. “But when you’re in a crowded place where you don’t know the vaccination status of the people involved, it’s very prudent to wear a mask.”
World Health Organization Director-General Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus said on Monday that the world should be “widely alert to the threat of this virus.”
“There have been as many plagues as wars in history, but there have always been plagues & wars that surprise everyone equally.”
