Fauci Says WHO Was Wrong About Saying Asymptomatic Spread Of Coronavirus Is Rare

Published

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.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
