Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, said on Sunday the US has “the potential to go into a fifth wave” of coronavirus infections amid rising cases and stagnating vaccination rates.

Speaking to NBC’s Meet the Press, Fauci discussed why Omicron has raised such alarm.

“In other words, the profile of the mutations strongly suggest that it’s going to have an advantage in transmissibility and that it might evade immune protection that you would get, for example, from the monoclonal antibody or from the convalescent serum after a person’s been infected and possibly even against some of the vaccine-induced antibodies.

“So it’s not necessarily that that’s going to happen, but it’s a strong indication that we really need to be prepared for that.”.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said no Omicron cases have been discovered in the US.

On CBS, Fauci said any fifth wave of cases “will really be dependent upon what we do in the next few weeks to a couple of months”.

Another senior US government scientist, the National Institutes of Health director, Francis Collins, discussed the Omicron variant on Sunday.

Collins also said there were “good reasons to think it will probably be OK but we need to know the real answers to that and that’s going to take two or three weeks”.

“I’m just going to do my job and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying,” he said
