Dr. Fauci continues to move the goal posts and claims that America will not be “normal” until March of 2022.
“I don’t think we’re going to be completely normal a year from now,” Fauci said. “But I hope we’re well on the way to normality so that we can ultimately get the world protected at the same time as we get economic recovery so that all the unintended consequences of shutting down begin to normalize, including other health issues that have arisen because of the shutdown.”
“What I often say is, if we jump the gun or do it too quickly, what happens is that you can get a resurgence of infection,” he said, adding that there was significant risk in doing so. “It’s very risky – if you go too fast, you’ll have a setback.”
Dr. Fauci made the same predictions about Florida and Texas last year and both states faired better than New York and California who followed Fauci’s lockdown advice.
It was Fauci who said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo handled the coronavirus the “right way” and criticized Florida.
However, Fauci refuses to comment over the growing nursing home scandal surrounding Cuomo.
“I can’t,” Fauci said. “I mean, I’m sorry. I’m really — I’m honestly not trying to evade your question, but I’m not really sure of all the details of that, and I think if I make a statement, it probably could either be incorrect or taken out of context. So, I prefer not to comment on that.”
