Dr. Fauci delivered some bad news that no American wanted to hear
Dr. Fauci refuses to just go away.
Instead, Dr. Fauci continues to make everything worse.
And Dr. Fauci delivered some bad news that no American wanted to hear.
Data from across America – and the world – makes it perfectly clear that the Omicron variant produces less severe illness than previous strains of the coronavirus.
This is undoubtedly good news.
However, critics argue it’s terrible news for tyrannical dictators like Dr. Fauci, who fear the end of the pandemic is the end of their time in the spotlight and the virtually unlimited power they seized at the outset of the pandemic.
In a White House coronavirus press briefing, Dr. Fauci appeared determined to prove his critics right by refusing to embrace the good news about Omicron.
Dr. Anthony Fauci dwelled in the doom and gloom by claiming that even though Omicron resulted in less severe illness, the increased transmissibility could still end up with overcrowded hospitals.
“But, the big caveat is, we should not be complacent since the increased transmissibility of variant . . . omicron . . . might be overridden by the sheer volume of the number of cases that may be a reduced severity, but could still stress our hospital [systems]. Because a certain proportion of a large volume of cases – no matter what – are going to be severe,” Dr. Fauci stated.
Dr. Fauci added that as long as the coronavirus could spread, Americans must still submit to mask and vaccine mandates.
“Don’t take this as a signal that we can pull back from the recommendations that you just heard from Dr. [Rochelle] Walensky – about the need for vaccination, for boosting, for wearing masks and all the other CDC recommendations,” Dr. Fauci added.
Dr. Fauci continues to advocate for mandates and restrictions even though treatments are widely available and the latest variant is not as lethal.
But that is not a recipe to end the pandemic.
It is how power grabs become permanent.
But unfortunately, that seems to be the only goal of authoritarian COVID bureaucrats like Dr. Anthony Fauci.
