Dr. Anthony Fauci’s claim that it’s ” too soon to tell” if families can hold Christmas gatherings has been debunked by a Johns Hopkins professor and medical doctor who accused him of failing to communicate that the COVID-19 risk is “not equally distributed.”
Fauci made the claim Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” However, Dr. Marty Makary, a Johns Hopkins professor and public health researcher, blasted the report during an interview Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
“We’re going to be in a much better place in a couple of weeks or maybe by November at the latest,” Makary said.
“Cases are down 35 percent, and we’ve always known this delta virus is so contagious. It’s burning through that last segment of the population with no natural or vaccinated immunity,” he said. “By December, almost every adult will have had COVID or vaccination.”
Makary also noted Fauci failed to disclose the shift from the coronavirus pandemic to an endemic.
“In the language that he’s using there’s an implicit denial that we’re moving from an epidemic to an endemic phase, that is, we’ve got to learn to live with it,” he said.
The medical researcher also noted the problem with not explaining the unequal distribution of risk across America.
“We’ve got over 90 percent of seniors vaccinated. The risk is not equally distributed in the population, and that’s what they fail to communicate,” Makary said.
What percentage is enough for Fauci? The whole bait and switch process is maddening. Most Americans have long stopped listening to the CDC and its medical advice. The problem is that those who are still listening are the ones launching vaccine mandates and vaccine passports.
In California, Governor Newsom announced this week that all public school children ages 12 and up will be required to take the COVID-19 vaccine to attend school. This will apply next year, from the point the FDA makes the vaccines officially approved.
This is the same vaccine that less than a year ago was not recommended for anyone under 18 because there was not enough data yet. Not sure what changed other than the politics, because one year doesn’t seem to be enough to do any kind of extended studies regarding children.
But since California reelected Newsom even after having a chance to recall him last month, you get what you vote for. Those who voted otherwise are now stuck with a leader whose choice may soon influence other states.
But two weeks to stop the spread has turned into the forever lockdown, and most Americans are over it. More than 100,000 people attended a recent Penn State game. Any outbreak there like Fauci predicted? NASCAR is back up and running fine with crowds. Any problems there?
Yes, COVID is real and stinks for those who have had it, but the truth is that it’s a problem, not THE problem that should shut down the nation. Makary, an honest doctor who is looking at the issue outside of leftist politics, has a much better approach. Maybe this guy should be running the CDC?
