White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci said he expects the BA.2 omicron subvariant to fuel a U.S. increase in Covid-19 cases and that a more serious surge could arrive with cooler fall weather. 

While it’s difficult to predict the next significant wave, “I would not be surprised if we see an uptick in cases,” Fauci, who’s also the longtime director of U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television.
