Dr. Anthony S. Fauci says that the United States will not come out of lockdown until there are no “new cases” of coronavirus, prompting some to question precisely how long that will be.
During yesterday’s White House briefing, Fauci, who has become the face of America’s response to the coronavirus, was asked by a reporter whether social distancing measures will be imposed until there is a drug or vaccine to treat COVID-19.
“I think if we get to the part of the curve that Dr. Birx showed yesterday when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing,” Fauci said.
“The one thing we hopefully would have in place, and I believe we will have in place, is a much more robust system to be able to identify someone who was infected, isolate them and then do contact tracing,” he added.
The prospect of there ever being zero new coronavirus cases appears to be a very long way off, leading some to question if Fauci was asking Americans to adopt social distancing indefinitely, or at least until a vaccine is available….
How can anyone accept this with a straight face? It’s transparently ridiculous. No one expects him to be an economist, but one would hope he had an inkling of the need for an economy. One would hope there would be at least one adult in the room.
By the time there are “no new cases” of covid-19 there will obviously be many thousands of new cases of starvation and homelessness from economic depression.
Who elected this guy? He’s been at NIH since the mid-80’s. Is he senile, brainwashed, blackmailed or autistic? Or is he a fabian satanist like so many others? This is like watching twilight zone.
