Dr. Anthony Fauci became a powerful and well-known person during the COVID pandemic.
He wants to keep all that attention now that he’s got used to it.
The only way he can do that is if COVID keeps going and he keeps getting asked to appear on TV.
So that’s probably why he’s come out with this.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning against declaring victory against the Chinese coronavirus pandemic “prematurely,” asserting the world has “a ways to go.”
“We don’t want to declare victory prematurely because we still have a ways to go,” the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director told the Guardian.Breitbart News
‘A ways to go’ is a very vague way of saying ‘it won’t end until it’s convenient for me’.
Otherwise he could have put a time limit on it.
Instead it looks like he attends to keep all eyes on him by fearmongering about the threat of new variants.
Fauci warned of virus variants — a talking point used by President Joe Biden to convince younger people to get vaccinated — explaining, “As long as there is some degree of activity throughout the world, there’s always a danger of variants emerging and diminishing somewhat the effectiveness of our vaccines.”Breitbart News
Well, there’s always going to be activity on Planet Earth, isn’t there.
Fauci is creating a situation where he’s the permanent go-to expert for the Biden Administration and perhaps beyond.
If the variants would diminish vaccine effectiveness, that begs a question…
Why are we getting vaccinated if they’re not going to work?
It seems that 40% of the population being vaccinated isn’t enough to stop the spread, so what is?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s May 30 data, just over half of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of a vaccine. Overall, over 135 million people in the U.S. are considered fully vaccinated, representing 40.7 percent of the population. However, that, in Fauci’s mind, is not enough to fully relax.
“We cannot abandon public health measures when you still have a degree of viral activity in the broad community in the United States,” Fauci said. “Although we’re down to less than 30,000 infections per day that’s still a lot of infections per day.”Breitbart News
Perhaps if we’d all stuck to herd immunity there wouldn’t be any need for the vaccines anyway…
And let’s not forget Fauci’s face-mask flip-flopping.
Fauci has long come under criticism for repeatedly altering his positions on key aspects of the pandemic. In March 2020, for example, Fauci dismissed the need to wear masks, only to later speak fondly of double-masking.
“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is,” he said during a 60 Minutes interview, warning of the “unintended consequences.”Breitbart News
Fauci seems to have his own agenda, and it doesn’t match up with reality because he changes his opinions at the drop of a hat.
Make of that what you will.
Either way, it’s not good for his credibility.
