Dr. Anthony Fauci says the conversation is being had about people eventually having to have a 'certificate of immunity to Coronavirus' once a vaccine is available.
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not,” he said. “This is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit.”
New antibody testing is the next step in the fight against Coronavirus. Dr. Fauci says that within the next week there will be a large number of COVID-19 tests available, and adds that “validation is key.”
“It’s very likely that there are a large number of people out there that have been infected, have been asymptomatic, and did not know they were infected,” Dr. Fauci said. “If their antibody test is positive, one can formulate kind of strategies about whether or not they would be at risk or vulnerable to getting reinfected.”
Dr. Fauci also predicted that the U.S. could see many more deaths in the next week, yet a decline in the number of hospitalizations.
