"The endgame of this all.is going to be to get people vaccinated.India is the largest vaccine-producing country in the world".

Fauci, in a Sunday interview with ABC News' "This Week", said one of the ways to curb the spread is to pressure vaccine manufacturers to distribute doses to India.

He also called upon other countries to chip in to get the supplies to India to help make manufacture the vaccines or send vaccines to India.

Fauci also said that some Americans may "elect" to continue wearing masks in public for at least part of the year, particularly during flu season, due to the success health officials saw in preventing the spread of the seasonal flu as a result of mask mandates.

He also recommended mass vaccination to arrest the current spread of the deadly disease across India. The US has officially lost over 581,000 people to Covid-19 but a University of Washington study estimated deaths at more than 900,000.
