Dr. Fauci can’t give a straight answer when it comes to vital coronavirus facts.
His answers just keep changing.
Dr. Fauci was struck speechless when he heard these five words on CNN.
The scientific community is still in the process of studying the novel coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China late in 2019.
However, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is moving the goalposts when it comes to the pandemic coming to a close.
“In the pandemic’s early days, Dr. Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did,” The New York Times reported last week. “About a month ago, he began saying ’70, 75 percent’ in television interviews. And last week, in an interview with CNBC News, he said ’75, 80, 85 percent’ and ‘75 to 80-plus percent.’”
In recent days Fauci has said that it would take 90 percent of the population being vaccinated to achieve herd immunity.
“Fauci said that weeks ago, he had hesitated to publicly raise his estimate because many Americans seemed hesitant about vaccines, which they would need to accept almost universally in order for the country to achieve herd immunity,” the Times added. “Now that some polls are showing that many more Americans are ready, even eager, for vaccines, he said he felt he could deliver the tough message that the return to normal might take longer than anticipated.”
Even host Dana Bash of CNN questioned Fauci on why he was not being “straight with the American people” from the beginning.
“No, actually, Dana, I don’t think it can be interpreted as being straight or not,” Fauci responded. “We have to realize that we have to be humble and realize what we don’t know. These are pure estimates. And the calculations that I made — 70, 75 percent, it’s a range. The range is gonna be somewhere between 70 and 85 percent.”
Fauci went on to say that “nobody really knows for sure” what percentage of the population would need to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity.
The left wants to extend the coronavirus crisis as long as they possibly can because they’ve grown fond of the immense emergency powers that they’ve gained and are in no hurry to give them up.
Fauci is giving the grimmest possible prognosis and the media treats his personal opinions as if they are gospel fact.
The problem is that the goals for the coronavirus keep shifting. At the start the goal was to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed, however now the goal is to keep coronavirus restrictions in place until there is no coronavirus spread.
Fauci said he wants to keep coronavirus restrictions in place for another year. That’s insanity.
He isn’t informing the American people about actual coronavirus facts, he is frightening them and allowing the Democrats to pass their insane policies.
