Anthony Fauci 'strongly suspects that you're going to start seeing the deaths go down similar to the hospitalizations'
During an interview with Greta Van Susteren, which will be aired on Sunday, Fauci also recommended that even vaccinated people wear masks outside
He said other factors that will impact the future death toll are colder weather, people doing more things indoors and abiding by CDC guidelines
Fauci also noted that there has been a 'turnaround in the slope' in the prevalence of cases and hospitalizations over the last few weeks
On Thursday the US reported 110,060 new infections, with a seven-day rolling average of 112,792 - a 32 percent decline from the average four weeks ago
But on Friday, the US hit a grim milestone and surpassed 700,000 Covid deaths
Fauci - during an interview with Greta Van Susteren, which will be aired on Sunday - was asked if he expected another surge in Covid cases this winter caused by different variants.
'I strongly suspect that you're going to start seeing the deaths go down similar to the hospitalizations; how quickly they go down and how thoroughly they go down is going to depend a lot on a number of circumstances, which will be influenced by things like the colder weather, people doing things indoors,' Fauci said.
Deaths have been dropping steadily for the past three weeks - from a seven-day rolling average of 1,767 per day on September 15 to 1,418 on October 7 - and are expected to keep falling at the same rate as the decrease in hospitalizations.
