US UK travel – What's the latest news?

People could travel between the US and the UK by September, according to Doctor Anthony Fauci.

Fauci, the chief medical adviser for President Biden, says that it is up to people in the UK to make more progress against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"I think once they get more and more people vaccinated and get the people who've gotten a single dose to make sure they get their second dose, I think the UK is going to be in a very favorable position by the time we get to the end of the summer," he told ITV News.

However, Fauci cautioned that "you really can't tell because things happen, variants occur, things happen with regards to infection."

There have been more than $33 million coronavirus cases in the US, with 600,000 deaths. There have been about 4.6 million cases in the UK with more than 125,000 deaths.

When it comes to the US, some states have done better than others in the fight against Covid-19.

Fauci says he has hope the world as a whole will be in better shape soon.

"If we come together as a global community and put resources in to get those countries that don't have the resources that the UK and the United States have to get those countries vaccinated, I think we can do that by 2022," he told ITV News.

"If we don't do it as successfully, it might take a little bit longer because whenever there's the dynamics of virus, anywhere in the world, there's always the threat of the emergence of a variant that will come back and complicate things in the UK, as well as in the United States."

The US is unlikely to meet Biden's target to have 70 percent of Americans at least partially vaccinated by July 4.

Fauci told reporters that he still hopes the goal will be met “and if we don’t, we’re going to continue to keep pushing.”
