Dr. Anthony Fauci on UpFront
Sunday morning political news program UpFront with Adrienne Pederson spoke with Dr. Anthony Fauci, infectious disease expert and a member of the White House coronavirus task force, about COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin.
“In Wisconsin, you have healthcare workers. You have people who are front line essential workers. You have people with underlying conditions. You have elderly people, you have young people who don’t have anything as an underlying condition so you can’t group Wisconsin as a uni-dementional group. If they decide in their prioritization that health care front line workers are the priority, you could have people in Wisconsin getting doses in December. As we get into January more, it’s not going to be one state versus another state, it’s who within that state is in the priority group,” said Dr. Fauci.
