We are now 703 days into “15 Days to slow the spread” that was going to “flatten the curve” of COVID, and, for many of us, the viral scourge is still a rather large part of our lives. This is particularly true for folks in specific industries, where mask and vaccine mandates have become a hotly debated topic. Well, those folks and other people who want to go out on the weekends and have a life.
But cases are waning, thanks in large part to the speedy spread of the ostensibly “mild” omicron variant, which brought a great deal of natural immunity to America throughout the last few months.
Dr. Anthony Fauci suggests that it’s time to start bringing “normal” back.
“The world and the United States, and particularly certain parts of the United States, are just up to here with COVID, they just really need to get their life back,” Fauci said in an interview with Reuters. “You don’t want to be reckless and throw everything aside, but you’ve got to start inching toward that.”
Although more than 2,000 Americans continue to die from the coronavirus each day, the daily death total fell 9% last week from the previous week, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday. Deaths are a lag indicator – new infections and hospitalizations have been in decline for weeks, and both fell more sharply last week.
Fauci was finally willing to speak on the collateral impacts of the virus as well.
“Is the impact on mental health, is the impact on development of kids, is the impact on schools – is that balanced against trying to be totally pristine and protecting against infection?” he said. “I don’t have the right answer to that.”
The news will come as a pleasant surprise for some Americans because it came from Dr. Fauci. However, that is why it makes others feel nervous. After all, he has been wrong about Coronavirus almost every time he opens his mouth. Despite that, the MSM treats Fauci like he walks on water.
History teaches us that if Dr. Fauci tells us something is getting better–, we’re screwed. You may remember that on January 21, 2020, Fauci told the press, “I think the risk is very low right now for the United States.” Fauci explained that we had “14 days to slow the spread less than two months later.” On 2/17/22, we are 703 days later, America is still trying to slow the spread? . Remember how he’s flip-flopped on masks? When he said no masks, then masks, two masks, and then wear masks again? This guy flip-flops daily —he doesn’t follow the science. He follows who will put him on television.
Because people worship him, any Fauci prediction is (to paraphrase Shakespeare’s Macbeth), a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. So when Dr. Fauci suggests that it’s time to start bringing “normal” back, don’t start celebrating yet, because he might call for another lockdown tomorrow.
