Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert in the US, said recently in an online discussion that if a significant number of Americans get vaccinated he estimates a return to "some semblance of normality" by the end of 2021 or 2022.

Sen. Rand Paul questions Dr. Anthony Fauci at the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on the coronavirus pandemic. However, he also believes that political division and the fear of economic losses have affected how the United States is handling the crisis and restarting the economy.

"I was very much involved with Dr. Deborah Birx and putting together these guidelines, which were a gateway of Phase 1, Phase 2 - to tell you how you can gradually, safely, and prudently open up the country", Fauci said. "I feel cautiously optimistic that we will have a safe and effective vaccine even though you can never make absolute predictions when it comes to vaccinology".

Dr. Fauci added, "Masks in the United States have nearly become a political statement, and I know that was carried in the news globally, it was really ... very, very hard".

"I know that was carried in the news globally", he said. "I haven't spoken to the president in quite a while about the situation with regard to the outbreak", Fauci said, again saying the US needs, "mandate or not", to wear masks.
