Now let's use our God-given Logic. The nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Fauci has been lauded by the Leftists as being the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY on not only the COVID virus but all viruses.
Now please, watch and listen...when Dr. Fauci said wearing a mask "MAY" block a droplet, he was correct. How a mask works hasn't changed, and when Fauci stated that they (masks) don't provide the type of protection people believe they do, he was scientifically correct. He knows how small this virus is and that mask-wearing is NOT effective. This is why he said what he said last year. The science has NOT changed, just the agenda. Learning more about this virus has NOT changed the science Fauci originally stated about wearing a mask. How ignorant would one have to be to believe this? "The science has changed?"
Dr. Fauci is NOT an inexperienced intern in his field but an extremely experienced and educated professional. He is also shrewd and cunning and playing politics with the deliberate ignorance of the American people. What he states in this video is just as VALID today as it was when he stated it.
So perhaps you could say that Fauci's expert opinion regarding the general public NOT wearing masks was to ensure a mask shortage in the medical community was not forthcoming...so was he lying to the public and furthering "misinformation" which was EXACTLY why this interview happened in the first place; to dispel misinformation regarding mask-wearing. He even suggested that the Asian countries that are perpetual mask wearers, wear them for pointless reasons. That was not directly stated but the words between the lines were clear.
The point is, DO MASKS WORK to stop the spread of THIS virus? The, "right now, people shouldn't be walking around with masks" comment is irrelevant. We may now know more about this virus but FACTS about masks haven't changed, the size of the virus hasn't changed, the variant being more transmissible but less deadly hasn't changed the original, professional statement of Dr. Fauci.
What has changed is the LIGHTBULB moment when the Marxist, Leftist Elites saw that the WORLD simply complied!
