Washington, Nov 18 (Canadian-Media): Despite Canada's early successes in the pandemic, it still faces a worsening situation until a COVID-19 vaccine is rolled out widely, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, U.S. presidential adviser and the director of the U.S. National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease, media reports said.

"Right now, the entire planet is in trouble. If you look at almost every country, there are very few exceptions," said Fauci and added that Public health measures need to be accelerated.
"The European Union, if you look at the number of new infections, it's out of sight. The United States is out of sight. Canada, which was supposedly doing so well, is also getting into trouble. There's a lot of community spread."
Fauci said the virus is primarily spreading at the household level among smaller groups of people who may not even know they're infected. People have to be vigilant about this with fast approaching holidays and colder months.
