    While studies regarding COVID-19 vaccine safety in pregnant women are ongoing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s chief medical advisor, said that there doesn’t appear to be any concerns for now. "Those studies are going to be done soon, and some are ongoing right now, but for pregnant women who have already taken it, after the emergency use authorization, there doesn’t seem to be any problem," Fauci said, in a short Q&A posted to the White House’s Twitter account. The clip, which is part of a "Dr. Fauci vs. The Clock" series, has already racked up over 27,000 views after it was posted Monday morning. IS IT COVID-19, ALLERGIES, OR POST-VACCINATION SYMPTOMS? HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE His response echoes the latest from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that experts believe that based on how the vaccines work in the body, they are unlikely to...
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) clashed with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, over U.S. guidance on masks in a Senate hearing on the Covid-19 pandemic. Paul, a prominent anti-masker who contracted the coronavirus himself last year, cited a number of studies at a Thursday hearing that showed reinfections of the virus are rare. The Kentucky Republican asked Fauci to provide studies that justify the argument that everyone should wear masks “well into 2022,” given that those who have already been infected or have been vaccinated may not be likely to contract the virus again. “I’m not sure I understand the connection of what you’re saying about masks and reinfection. We’re talking about people who have never been infected before,” Fauci replied. Paul clarified he was asking why everyone is being told to wear a mask, even though people who have already been infected likely have natural...
    Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci were involved in a tense exchange Thursday when the two argued about coronavirus restrictions, and Paul accused Fauci of performing theater by wearing two masks. "If we're not spreading the infection, isn't it just theater?” the Kentucky Republican said to Fauci during a Senate hearing. “If you've had the vaccine and you're wearing two masks, isn't that theater?" "If we're not spreading the infection, isn't it just theater?If you've had the vaccine and you're wearing two masks, isn't that theater?"@RandPaul presses Dr. Fauci on COVID post-vaccine masks, immunity, and reinfection. pic.twitter.com/cRSeQxmLu3— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) March 18, 2021 "No, it's not — here we go again with the theater,” Fauci responded. “Let's get down to the facts," Fauci shot back, explaining that the studies Paul cited showing people who have been infected have little chance of being reinfected only "look at in vitro examination...
    The nation’s leading infectious disease expert said he expects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to update school reopening guidance to reflect that 3 feet of distancing between students is safe. Dr. Anthony Fauci's comments, made on NBC News’ TODAY on Thursday, come a day after the CDC's director was pressed on the topic during a House subcommittee hearing. Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Wednesday had said the CDC is "actively" looking at additional studies on whether students can be spaced 3 feet apart instead of the currently recommended 6 feet, and when asked if the agency would be issuing new guidance said they were "looking to do it soon." She did not indicate when "soon" would be. On Thursday, Fauci, who was also a part of Wednesday’s subcommittee hearing, said that he thinks "that will likely happen," and that the CDC is currently "analyzing that data very carefully right now…...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed that the CDC is working on recommendations for individuals that have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccines, with some recent studies offering a promising measure to determine when states can relax overall restrictions. Speaking on Sunday morning talk shows, the president’s chief medical adviser discussed the benefits of an aggressive vaccination campaign – most importantly, the ways in which individuals can relax and resume some things "we previously hadn’t talked about." FDA PANEL ENDORSES JOHNSON & JOHNSON'S COVID-19 VACCINE "The CDC will be coming out within the next few weeks, maybe even sooner, with some guidelines," Fauci told "State of the Union" host Dana Bash. "But one of the things that I think is going to become clear is that if you have adults who are vaccinated – that are doubly vaccinated and protected – that you can do things we weren’t talking about before."...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testifies before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on June 30, 2020 in Washington, DC.Kevin Dietsch | AFP via Getty Images Drugmakers and U.S. regulators plan to launch clinical trials in January testing the safety of Covid-19 vaccines on pregnant women and young children, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Those two groups were excluded from the first Covid-19 vaccine clinical trials until researchers could determine that the vaccine was relatively safe in healthy adults before testing it in more vulnerable populations. Fauci noted Thursday in a discussion sponsored by Columbia University on Thursday that pregnant women have not been included in any Covid vaccine clinical trials to date. It's not clear if the omission means that pregnant...
    Ryan Gabrielson - Isaac Arnsdorf - Caroline Chen October 17, 2020 2:05AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on ProPublica. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease official, will oversee most of the ongoing COVID-19 vaccine trials in the U.S., but not that of the current front-runner made by Pfizer, documents obtained by ProPublica show. According to a draft charter spelling out how most of the advanced COVID-19 vaccine trials will be monitored, Fauci is the "designated senior representative" of the U.S. government who will be part of the first look at the results. That puts Fauci in the room with the companies — including Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca — in deciding whether the vaccines are ready to seek approval from the Food and Drug Administration. : Fauci's role, which has not been previously reported and was confirmed for ProPublica by the National Institutes of Health, could...
    WASHINGTON -- The top U.S. infectious disease expert said AstraZeneca's suspension of final testing of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate shows "one of the safety valves" built into the studies to spot any potential problems."It's unfortunate that it happened and hopefully they'll be able to proceed along with the remainder of the trial. But you don't know - they need to investigate it further," Dr. Anthony Fauci, infectious diseases chief at the National Institutes of Health, told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday.Late Tuesday, AstraZeneca announced its final-stage studies are on temporary hold while the company investigates whether a research volunteer's "potentially unexplained illness" is a side effect of the shot or a coincidence.Behind-the-scenes monitors known as the "data and safety monitoring board" in Britain paused vaccinations while alerting its safety counterparts in the U.S., said Dr. Moncef Slaoui of Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration's vaccine development program.Late last month, AstraZeneca...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci is rejecting Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch’s arguments about randomized placebo-controlled studies of hydroxychloroquine.  Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, made his comments during a Thursday interview on CNN’s "New Day” program. President Donald Trump has touted the drug as a possible treatment for the coronavirus. But most studies have found the drug to be ineffective and even dangerous. “New Day” host brought up the issue with Fauci. Berman said: “However we did have Dr Harvey Risch from Yale on Monday, and he suggested what you have been saying, that random controlled trials, placebo-controlled trials, you say they’re the gold standards. He says that’s not so.” Berman asked Fauci why he felt so strongly about the trials. “Well, because it is the gold standard,” Fauci said. “You have to compare your intervention with something. Because the medical literature and experience is full of situations...
    White House infectious disease honcho Dr. Anthony Fauci firmly rejected Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch’s criticisms of randomized placebo-controlled studies of hydroxychloroquine, siding with CNN’s John Berman on his throwdown with Risch earlier this week. Berman went 11 rounds with Dr. Risch on Monday over the drug that President Donald Trump has been promoting for months, but which has not been proven effective and may be harmful in some cases. Risch argued, at length, against Fauci’s description of randomized placebo-controlled trials as the scientific “gold standard.” On Thursday morning’s edition of New Day, Berman asked Dr. Fauci to respond, and Fauci was unequivocal, if respectful, in his disagreement with Risch. “In terms of science and studies, this does raise another question, and I don’t want to relitigate hydroxychloroquine, because the science hasn’t changed on it in the last week or the last day.,” Berman said. “However we did have...
    SAN ANTONIO – In an exclusive with KPRC 2 in Houston, a controversial doctor featured in a viral video retweeted by President Donald Trump stood by her claims that malaria drug hydroxycholoroquine can prevent COVID-19. Dr. Stella Immanuel gave an impassioned speech on Monday in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, which was taken down by Twitter and Facebook for violating the social media company’s misinformation policy. Despite Immanuel’s claims, several studies have shown the drug has no benefit to COVID-19 patients. The interest in the drug has led to a doubling in hydroxycholorquine prescriptions, doctors say, leaving some lupus patients without the drug they need to survive. Immanuel told KPRC that doctors who don’t believe in the drug are not in agreement with her “because of Big Pharma.” The doctor says the drug can be used as a preventative measure and that she takes two hydroxycholorquine pills...
    By DARLENE SUPERVILLE and AMANDA SEITZ WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump issued a stout defense Tuesday of a disproved use of a malaria drug as a treatment for the coronavirus, hours after social media companies moved to take down videos promoting its use as potentially harmful misinformation. The president, in a marked shift from the more measured approach he’s taken toward the virus in recent days, took to Twitter to promote hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, and to amplify criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert. In a White House briefing, Trump defended his decision to promote a viral video of a group of doctors promoting the use of the drug Monday, even though his own administration withdrew emergency authorization for its use against the coronavirus. “I think they’re very respected doctors,” Trump said, adding they believed in...
    Meaghan Ellis July 25, 2020 0 Comments U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ claim about children being “stoppers” of the coronavirus has garnered a response from Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health experts. The resurgence of her claim stems from President Donald Trump’s press briefing on Wednesday evening. During the briefing, he echoed DeVos’ remarks insisting children “don’t transmit [COVID-19] very easily,” as Trump said, according to The Washington Post. “They do say that [children] don’t transmit very easily, and a lot of people are saying they don’t transmit,” he said. “They don’t bring it home with them. They don’t catch it easily; they don’t bring it home easily.” Prior to Trump’s remarks, DeVos cited a German study during an interview on “The Conservative Circus” radio show. “More and more studies show that kids are actually stoppers of the disease and they don’t get it and transmit it...
    Here is some bad news for those banking on a vaccine before getting back to living their lives: COVID-19 immunity might not last, according to studies. Antibodies created by the infection were shown to decline 20-30 days after the onset of infection and fell rapidly thereafter, according to a U.K. study published July 11 and yet to be peer reviewed, Yahoo reported. A Chinese study found similar findings, reporting COVID-19 patients antibody levels fell sharply withing 2-3 months after infection, per the report. "Were seeing in other countries evidence that people may be losing their antibodies over a period of time," according to Yahoo News Medical Contributor Dr. Dara Kass. "And so we need to continue to test and track patients not just when theyre actively infected but also as they recover to understand more about what it means to be recovered from this coronavirus." Antibodies are proteins that attach to...
    (CNN)The US government will fund and conduct key studies on three experimental coronavirus vaccines, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, tells CNN.Phase 3 trials, which typically involve tens of thousands of people and measure whether a vaccine is safe and effective, will begin with one by Moderna in July, then an Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in August and one by Johnson & Johnson in September. The funding and trial timing were first reported by the Wall Street Journal. CNN has reached out to the companies for comment."The coronavirus vaccine effort is progressing very well and we expect more than one candidate vaccine to be in advanced clinical testing by early summer," Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN. "This is good news for the overall coronavirus vaccine effort." 19 states see rising coronavirus cases and Arizona is asking its hospitals to activate emergency...
