White House Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci expected the US would have moved past the Covid-19 pandemic after the first year of the Biden administration, but the disruption from the virus has lingered longer than the infectious disease expert anticipated.

“I thought after yet again another year we would have Covid behind us, but as it turns out that’s not the case,” he said in a taped interview that will appear at noon New York time on Bloomberg Television and Radio’s “Balance of Power” with David Westin.
