Fauci Continues To Claim That COVID-19 Is Never Leaving

Dr. Anthony Fauci has constantly been changing his stance about the virus throughout the entire pandemic, with each take being more apocalyptic than the previous.

The most recent of these increasingly apocalyptic predictions have been made and it states that COVID-19 is here to stay.

“This is not going to be eradicated and it’s not going to be eliminated. And what’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take in going to indoor dinners and in going to functions,” stated Fauci while in an interview on “This Week” from ABC this past Sunday.

“We’re at that point where in many respects … we’re going to have to live with some degree of virus in the community,” he claimed. “So you’re going to make a question and an answer for yourself, for me as an individual, for you as an individual. What is my age? What is my status? Do I have people at home who are vulnerable that if I bring the virus home there may be a problem?”

The doctor also stated that the all-around best way to try and curb the risks of the virus is to go and get vaccinated.

“If you’re not, to get boosted if you’re eligible to be boosted. If you’re in the certain group like the CDC’s recent determination about people 50 and older, and individuals with underlying conditions, get that fourth boost, which, by the way, we really need to concentrate a lot more on that, about getting new tests, getting drugs, getting vaccines which I hope the Congress comes through and gives us the resources so that as we get into what might be another surge that we’re prepared with the — all of the tools that we need to address it,” claimed the doctor.

Back in the middle of March 2020, when spokespeople for the World Health Organization (WHO) were claiming that COVID-19 was an almost entirely surface transmission virus, Fauci claimed, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”

“When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is,” stated Fauci on CBS News.

While various experts did not know early on in the course of the pandemic exactly how many of the American people would need to generate antibodies in order to create herd immunity, many experts placed that number in a range from 50% all the way up to 70%. Near the start of the pandemic, Fauci claimed that number to be 60% to 70%, but revised this in December of 2020 to spike up the number, stating in an interview with CNBC News that it would take around “75, 80, 85 percent.”

“People were getting confused and thinking you’re never going to get the infections down until you reach this mystical level of herd immunity, whatever that number is,” he stated to The New York Times at that time. “That’s why we stopped using herd immunity in the classic sense. I’m saying: Forget that for a second. You vaccinate enough people, the infections are going to go down.”
