[Ed. – Saw through Fauci pretty quickly. Was sadder this week to see Birx get caught violating her public health dictates. She came across as more credible, and for longer than Fauci did. In retrospect, it’s hard to know if Trump and Pence (the task force head) got really honest, sound advice from anyone, other than their personal physicians. It’s amazing what they got done anyway.]
Dr. Anthony Fauci reportedly said in a phone interview that he has been deliberately changing his public statements regarding the COVID-19 pandemic because he didn’t think people were ready to hear his true beliefs, according to the New York Times.
Fauci has been slowly increasing the number of Americans he says need to be vaccinated for the U.S. to reach “herd immunity” in public statements, the New York Times reported Thursday morning. He reportedly told the Times he has done so “partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”
He … reportedly admitted that weeks earlier he wanted to keep his estimates low because more Americans were skeptical about getting a vaccine.
