Fauci Drops Bombshell: 'Too Soon' to Know if Family Christmas is Safe Yet
Of all of the people and all of the bad news that w’eve face during the COVID-19 pandemic, perhaps none has been as powerful a combination of the two as Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Fauci, one of the nation’s leading epidemiologists, has long erred on the cautious side of caution…much to the chagrin of a nation who’s grown sick and tired of anything to do with coronavirus.
That’s why his latest batch of sour grapes isn’t sitting so well.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, said Sunday it’s too early to say whether Americans should avoid larger family gatherings for Christmas, while the nation experiences an uptick in new COVID-19 infections among children alongside lagging vaccination rates.
In an interview with “Face the Nation,” Fauci said it’s “just too soon to tell” whether holiday gatherings should be limited for the second year in a row due to the ongoing pandemic, but said Americans need to focus on lowering the number of new infections and hospitalizations.
“We’ve just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time,” Fauci told “Face the Nation. “Let’s focus like a laser on continuing to get those cases down. And we can do it by people getting vaccinated and also in the situation where boosters are appropriate to get people boosted.”
The vaccination rate in America has plummeted of late, forcing both the federal government and a number of private businesses to begin implementing induction mandates -a move what has set off a number of resignations around the country.
