Fauci said: “The deaths are real deaths. I mean, all you need to do is to go out into the trenches, go to the hospitals, see what the health care workers are dealing with.

“They are under very stressed situations in many areas of the country, the hospital beds are stretched.

“People are running out of beds, running out of trained personnel who are exhaustive right now. That’s real. That’s not fake. That’s real.”

Meanwhile, the National Guard has been activated to help with Covid-19 vaccinations as the country’s daily death toll his its grim new record.

State governors have also been training up more volunteers to administer the vaccines.
