Washington-The government’s top infectious disease experts say the family is a safe outdoor trick-or-treat for Halloween this year, especially for those who are vaccinated, as the number of cases of COVID-19 in the United States is declining. You can feel the treat.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday on CNN’s “Program Show” that it was an important time of the year for children, so “go there” and “enjoy.”

He added that anyone who wants to enjoy Halloween on October 31st should consider getting a shot of that “additional protection” if they haven’t been vaccinated yet.

So far, the COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for people over the age of 12. The Food and Drug Administration is planning a meeting in late October to consider Pfizer’s request for an emergency use authorization for vaccines for children aged 5 to 11.

There are about 95,000 new COVID-19 cases per day nationwide. Fauci called the downtrend “good news,” but warned that he would declare a premature victory as the incident bounced back in the past.

He said he hopes to reduce the number of cases to less than 10,000 per day before lifting the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, such as taking off masks indoors in public places.
