“When you have a pandemic outbreak like this, science is ultimately going to get us out of it,” Fauci said at an event hosted by the American Medical Informatics Association.
Developments like coronavirus vaccines are being driven by science, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, pointed out.
“I think you've got to understand the important role of science in containing public health threats,” he said. “Namely, what we're doing now with a vaccine.”
“What's going to get us out of this dilemma – not a dilemma, this terrible situation that we're in – is going to be the vaccine,” he added.
