Watch: Fauci Says, ‘We’re Going To Have To Live With Some Degree Of Virus In The Community
You could see the twinkle leave his eye after he was finally forced to admit some things he’s tried to ignore for over a year.
The virus is going to the virus.
It was just a few weeks ago Fauci was demanding America go back to indoor masking.
“We’re not dealing with a more severe variant, and number two, the protection that’s afforded by vaccination and boosting as well as prior infection is really comparable to the BA.1,” Fauci said. “So the only difference is that it spreads a bit more efficiently, which is the reason why in the UK and in certain European countries they’re seeing an uptick or a turnaround and the beginning of some mini or moderate surges there.”
“We should be prepared to pivot and maybe go back to the reinstitution of some of these restrictions regarding indoor masking when you have a congregate setting. I hope that doesn’t happen. But we need to be prepared for that,” he added.
Fauci made the declaration shortly after admitting that the new variant is mild and not as severe as the Delta wave that hit the country last fall.
Just as the flame of being back on TV during another COVID wave started to foster it was extinguished when just a couple of weeks later Fauci backtracked.
“This is not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated,” Fauci told ABC’s “This Week.” “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.”
“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 added.
Funny most sensible people have been saying that for over a year.
