Time for Dr. Fauci to Go: His Hide-bound, Patronizing “Science” Speech is Old — Especially when He Ignores American, French and Spanish Data
It is time for Dr. Fauci to go.
He is a hide-bound ideologue who simply will not listen.
First, watch these two American doctors discuss the results of their work with Wuhan virus-infected patients who are on hydroxychloroquine on FOX NEWS.
Second, watch Dr. Fauci’s condescending and dismissive “scientific” attitude, here.
Not only does Dr. Fauci dismiss American findings, but he also dismisses Spanish and French results from using hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients.
if you are wondering where Dr. Fauci was in the early days of the Wuhan virus outbreak, this article from “Virus Experts’ Early Statements Belie ‘Prescient’ Portrayal,” has the following summary of Dr. Fauci’s statements:
On Jan. 21, he emphasized that it was unclear whether the virus could spread from person to person: “Is it a continual spread? Is it sustained? We’re not quite sure yet.” A University of Minnesota expert offered that “this is one of those inflection moments in outbreak history where we have enough information to be very concerned, but not enough information to say this is going to be an international crisis.”
In a Jan. 23 Journal of the American Medical Association podcast, Dr. Fauci repeatedly downplayed the virus’ potential impact on the U.S., noting that all five cases here were travelers from China. He also noted that due to limited testing in China, the number of infections was likely much higher than official counts, meaning that the death rate of the virus was likely much lower than feared.
Asked whether the U.S. might contemplate city-wide shutdowns like those China was enacting at the time, Fauci replied, “There’s no chance in the world that we could do that to Chicago or to New York or to San Francisco, but they’re doing it. So, let’s see what happens.”
Most importantly, he added that it was still quite possible the Chinese could get control of the outbreak and prevent it from becoming a global issue, and that even if there were more cases in the U.S., “the CDC, as usual, is on top of things.”
The same day, Fauci emphasized that other coronaviruses such as SARS and MERS could not sustain person-to-person spread like the flu and that such viruses “maybe never will.” For its part, WHO noted that no person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 had been reported outside of China and that all of the deaths had been limited to that country.
Fauci also took care to praise the Chinese government for “being quite transparent” and said he was “impressed” with officials’ cooperation.
