Dr. Anthony Fauci, who once failed to meet his prediction of 1-2 MILLION COVID-19 deaths before Summer, is back to making bold predictions regarding the future of Coronavirus.
Hey, he was only off by 1.9 million the first time!
Speaking with the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, Fauci said “We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around.”
He added, “I am very concerned.”
His comments were in response to a question from Senator Elizabeth Warren, who asked “How many COVID-19 deaths and infections should America expect before this is all over?”
Dr. Fauci, who never shies away from a chance to inspire hysteria, was quick to feign self-depreciation, saying “I can’t make an accurate prediction…”
Before, of course, immediately making a (most likely entirely inaccurate) prediction.
He told the committee, “it is going to be very disturbing, I will guarantee you that, because when you have an outbreak in one part of the country even though in other parts of the country they are doing well, they are vulnerable… We can’t just focus on those areas that are having the surge. It puts the entire country at risk.”
This time, he refused to provide an actual number for the overall COVID-19 deaths he estimated, maybe because he has already had to back down from his first prediction, and also his second prediction, and backing down from a third would just make him feel so silly.
Throughout the whole thing, Fauci has painted a doomsday scenario that has yet to find root in reality.
While more skeptical minds doubt the doctor’s intentions and maybe even believe he is intentionally misleading the public, Fauci remains committed to his narrative that the models couldn’t be trusted.
He claims, “they tend to change over time.”
Hopefully we can avoid shutting down our entire economy and losing 43+ million jobs over the latest fake news claim from Fauci this time.
