Fauci Says WHO Was Wrong About Saying Asymptomatic Spread Of Coronavirus Is Rare
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top government infectious disease expert who has been an integral part of President Trump’s coronavirus task force, stated that recent comments by the World Health Organization concerning the asymptomatic spread of the coronavirus being “very rare” were not correct.
It’s getting really hard to take anything any of these so-called “experts” say on this illness very seriously, as everything they say contradicts whatever was said before. Who does one trust in a situation like that? Which information is accurate and true? Is any of it?
Fauci made an appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday where he said, “They walked that back, because there’s no evidence that that’s the case. To make a statement that that’s a rare event was not correct.”
Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:
Kerkhove said Monday that “it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual.” She revised her statement on Tuesday via a Facebook Live event, when she said, “I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that. I was trying to articulate what we know, and in that, I used the phrase ‘very rare.’”
Her claim spurred criticism from other health experts and epidemiologists because reducing the risk of asymptomatic spread was a goal of enacting statewide lockdowns and economic restrictions. Fauci and members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force have stressed the need to curb asymptomatic transmission of the virus since the pandemic began.
“The evidence that we have, given the percentage of people, which is about 25, 45% of the totality of infected people likely are without symptoms,” Fauci said Wednesday. “And we know from epidemiological studies that they can transmit to someone who is uninfected.”
The current number of COVID-19 cases in America is hovering just below 2 million as states across the country continue forward with plans to reopen their economies. Daily case numbers are starting to slow down, but don’t get too excited just yet, says Dr. Fauci, who seems to determined to rain on as many parades as possible.
According to the good doctor, the pandemic is not over. He said some communities will see very low infection rates while others will need to continue exercising caution to prevent additional spikes.
Again, how do we know Fauci is telling the truth or that the information he has is accurate? So many different “experts” and “professionals” are saying different things. Someone is wrong. The problem right now is we can’t tell who those people are.
