As COVID-19 case numbers started increasing in the US, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), appeared on CBS’s 60 Minutes on March 8, 2020, saying “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”
Five days later, President Trump on March 13 declared a national emergency asking for the country to shut down for 15 days to “flatten the curve”.
As the number of infections and deaths increased, the data reflected that those over 70 years of age and/or those with premorbidity conditions were the bulk of the cases. Unlike previous viruses, such as H1N1, children were identified as having a much lower risk of being affected by the virus.
Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNBC on June 5th concerning the question on whether to reopen schools in the fall has a “complicated answer” and will depend on the coronavirus’s transmission in regions of the U.S.
Later in the month in Senator Rand Paul, a medical doctor, slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for failing to provide leadership on the closing of schools due to the coronavirus.
Senator Paul argued that spread of the virus is very low among young people and that America should send children back to school.
Now that the elections are over, Dr. Fauci suggested it is NOW good to open the schools.
What changed in the pandemic for such a big shift in Fauci’s opinion that it would be safe for schools to start the process of sending children back to school. The Elections Are Over!
Since children were identified early on as having lower risks of getting the infection, and after Senator and Dr. Ran Paul and hundreds of other physicians implored the CDC to allow the children back to school, the fact that Fauci waited until after the elections , should concerned every American.
