Dr. Fauci’s uncontrollable fearmongering on the coronavirus crisis has gone too far.
Another medical expert is calling him out.
A top Republican cut Dr. Fauci’s ego down to size with just two words.
The coronavirus has killed over a hundred thousand Americans since the crisis started.
The death rate for the novel coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China is more than double the rate of the seasonal flu and in the population when the outbreak started there was absolutely no herd immunity.
It certainly is still a serious situation, but what we’re looking at is hardly the worst-case scenario.
America had massive protests for weeks and while cases of the coronavirus have risen, the medical system is still not in jeopardy.
With some businesses still closed and school not resuming in the fall, there’s a serious cost to the measures that are being taken to stop the coronavirus.
Among children and young adults, the chance of having serious complications is rare.
The American Academy of Pediatrics released a statement asking for children to be sent back to schools.
“The importance of in-person learning is well-documented, and there is already evidence of the negative impacts on children because of school closures in the spring of 2020,” the American Academy of Pediatrics said.
Sen. Rand Paul, an M.D. with many years of experience, agreed with the American Academy of Pediatrics and criticized Dr. Fauci for his “fatal conceit.”
“It is a fatal conceit to believe any one person or small group of people has the knowledge necessary to direct an economy or dictate public health behavior,” Paul said Tuesday. “I think government health experts during this pandemic need to show caution in their prognostications.”
Paul, who recovered from coronavirus himself, accused public health experts of “instilling undue fear.”
“We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone,” Paul added. “When are we gonna tell the people the truth? That it’s okay to take their kids back to school.”
“We need to not be so presumptuous that we know everything,” Paul continued. “But, my question to you is, can’t you give us a little bit more on schools, so that we can get back to school?”
Fauci responded by saying that he agreed that children need to get back to school and added that his previous comments had been taken out of context.
“I feel very strongly we need to do whatever we can to get the children back to school,” Fauci said.
Many children from disadvantaged backgrounds had trouble getting computers and internet access to keep up with their schoolwork remotely.
However, the teachers’ unions are dead set against schools reopening in the fall.
