Dr. Anthony Fauci told USA Today in a recent interview that the coronavirus pandemic will likely remain ongoing during the Christmas and New Year's holidays despite hopes for a vaccine by then.

"If the surge takes a turn of continuing to go up and you have the sustained greater than 100,000 infections a day and 1,300 deaths per day and the count keeps going up and up ... I don't see it being any different during the Christmas and New Year's holidays than during Thanksgiving," Fauci said.

He also stressed that Americans should avoid gatherings with family members despite the temptation.

"For my own family, I'm saying we had a really great Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. We're looking forward to a really great Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2021. Let's now make the best of the situation and show our love and affection for people by keeping them safe," Fauci said.

He added that even small gatherings with multiple households can be dangerous.

"Given the cold weather and given the fact that these types of celebrations — as wonderful and beautiful and traditional as they are — are fundamentally indoor things with people who will be singing and laughing and eating and drinking ... you've just got to be careful."
