Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s go-to for all things coronavirus, said on Sunday on national news that even those who’ve been vaccinated should not gather indoors, or eat indoors, or remove their masks — or basically, in essence, do anything that involves being and breathing around others.
This guy will have Americans walking on pins and needles, living in fear, forever — if we let him.
His so-called supporting science is about as solid as tossing a coin. Heads, stay at home; tails, don’t go outside. Heads, wear a face mask; tails, wear two face masks.
MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan asked him, “What is the message to vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans as to what they should and should not be doing right now? For example, eating and drinking indoors in restaurants and bars — is that OK now?”
And Fauci’s answer?
“It’s still not OK for the simple reason that the level of infection, the dynamics of infection in the community, are still really disturbingly high,” said, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Like just yesterday there were close to 80,000 new infections, and we’ve been hanging around 60,000, 70,000, 75,000.”
So? So what?
Infections are meaningless.
Case counts are meaningless.
The only thing that really matters is the number of recoveries and the number of fatalities, in context of the number of total case positives. And on that — on that percentage — on that statistic — the coronavirus has been rocking the recovery rate for months. Depending on which source is cited, the coronavirus has between 95% and 99% recovery rates.
That was without widespread vaccinations.
Now, with vaccines rolled out left and right, and more and more Americans getting vaccinated, and more and more Americans doing what the government told Americans to do — to wear face masks, to get vaccinated, to socially distance, to stay out of school, even — now, Fauci wants to suggest it’s all for naught?
“So,” he said, “if you’re not vaccinated, please get vaccinated as soon as the vaccine becomes available to you, and if you are vaccinated, please remember that you still have to be careful and not get involved in crowded situations, particularly indoors where people are not wearing masks. And for the time being, until we show definitely that a person who’s vaccinated does not get this subclinical infection and can spread to others, you should also continue to wear a mask.”
Subclinical infection? Disturbingly high infections? Dynamics of infection?
Fauci and his made-up scientific terminology has done enough harm to the American people in terms of generating needless fear to strip individual liberties.
It’s time to stop listening to him. It’s actually well past time to stop listening to him.
Fauci’s faux science is simply destroying America from the inside, crippling freedoms and cowering Americans in the corner. It will only continue so long as Americans let him continue.
