Coronavirus tally: Fauci says U.S. unlikely to see same COVID case surge this winter but urges Americans to get updated booster

The U.S. is unlikely to suffer the same surge of COVID infections this winter as it did last year, when the omicron variant first emerged and swept across the country, senior health officials said Tuesday. Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, addressed reporters for the last time ahead of his retirement, saying that the combination of infections and vaccinations means there's "enough community protection that we're not going to see a repeat of last year at this time."
