In a report on CNET, statistics had shown that the coronavirus disease could still take a toll on younger people, adding that those people could “unknowingly” pass the disease onto others.

Fauci then reminded the public that they couldn’t think of themselves “in a vacuum”, adding that they could “innocently” infect someone else once they’re getting infected with the disease.

Moreover, Fauci said that they’ll see vaccine candidates that would undergo into clinical trial over the next 4-5 months. He also said that they could know whether there were candidates that were truly “safe” and “effective” by late fall.
