Dr. Fauci had some bad news for the American people.
After nearly a year of the pandemic hysteria, the public is looking for light at the end of the tunnel.
But Dr. Fauci went on TV and made a prediction that had Americans fearing something terrible.
In an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” host Bret Baier asked Dr. Fauci when Americans can expect not to wear masks or when the lockdowns will end.
Dr. Fauci did not deliver good news claiming mask mandates and lockdowns will go away when the virus was no longer a threat.
This constituted moving the goal posts from herd immunity to almost zero transmission, which will be nearly impossible.
“That will really be dependent upon how we get the level of the virus in the community down. If we can get — and I have used this as an estimate, it is not definitive — if we can get 70 to 85 percent of the population vaccinated and get to what we would hope would be to a degree of herd immunity, which really is an umbrella or a veil of protection against the community. Where the level of virus is so low, it’s not a threat at all. Then at that point, you can start thinking in terms of not having to have a uniform wearing of masks,” Dr. Fauci stated.
Baier pressed Fauci on when that would take place.
Fauci reverted to doom and gloom claiming the mask mandates might be dialed back a bit – but not eliminated entirely – by late fall, and Fauci wasn’t even able to guarantee that.
“But we’re certainly not nearly there yet. When do I think that would occur? It’s very difficult to predict, Bret, but if everything falls into the right place and we get this under control, it is conceivable that you might be able to pull back a bit on some of the public health measures as we get into the late fall of this year. But there’s no guarantee of that,” Dr. Fauci added.
According to this interview, Americans can now look forward to at least eight more months of mask mandates and lockdowns.
Instead of giving hope for a return to normal life, Dr. Fauci is preparing the public for the Biden administration keeping the lockdowns and mask mandates in place indefinitely.
