(PresidentialInsider.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the most prominent face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, struggled to explain why COVID-19 cases are dropping in Texas where the stringent measures he promotes are not widely practised.
Speaking to MSNBC on Tuesday morning, Fauci was asked about the dramatic reduction in cases in Texas since late January, even though the state’s leaders haven’t encouraged citizens to “double mask” or to stay at home.
They did exactly the opposite of what Fauci has insisted Americans should do for the past year.
“It can be confusing because you may see a lag and a delay because often, you have to wait a few weeks before you see the effect of what you’re doing right now,” Fauci said, before adding, “you know, there are a lot of things that go into that.”
But that doesn’t explain why the state has seen such a dramatic increase after allowing citizens to make their own choices on how to protect themselves for many months.
“When you say that they’ve had a lot of activity on the outside like ball games, I’m not really quite sure, it could be they’re doing things outdoors, it’s very difficult to just one-on-one compare that,” he added.
I still don’t hear an explanation…
Take a look at the video below, and see if you can find an honest answer to the question.
Texas had ministered roughly 13 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, which was developed under the Trump administration, to its citizens. It is likely to be a factor contributing to the state’s falling numbers, combined with Americans using their own initiatives to reduce the spread of the virus…whether or not they choose to wear masks.
Fauci said that he had hope that the numbers would “continue to tick down” but warned that there’s “always the concern, when you pull back on methods, particularly thinks like indoor dining and bars that are crowded, you can see a delay and all of a sudden tick right back up.”
This isn’t the first time Dr. Fauci has been proven wrong…and it likely won’t be the last.
