Fauci urges Trump to encourage his supporters to get vaccinated against COVID-19 because it would be “very useful”

The main person in charge of the fight against COVID-19 in the United States, Anthony Fauci, has urged former President Donald Trump to encourage his followers to get vaccinated against the disease, hinting that it would be “very useful.”

In an interview with Fox News, Fauci has indicated that he is “very surprised” by the number of Republicans who declare that they do not intend to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Thus, the epidemiologist believes that the gesture and that Trump expresses his support for immunization “would make a difference.” “He is a widely popular person among Republicans,” he has said.

In another intervention, this time on NBC, Fauci has called it “worrying” that Trump voters are inclined not to immunize themselves against the disease. “We have to separate political persuasion from common sense, obvious public health things,” he said, stressing that vaccines have rescued humanity from diseases such as polio or measles. What is the problem here? It has been questioned, as reported by ‘The Hill’.

The United States is the country most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the world. So far, US health authorities have counted more than 29.4 million infected people, including more than 534,000 fatalities from the disease.

Trump, who caught COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized, received the vaccine before leaving the White House. At the beginning of the pandemic, he chose to downplay it and opted not to impose restrictive measures to stop the spread of the disease, which caused the governors of the states of the North American nation to respond to the situation in a disparate way, with the application of limitations or the opposite.
