COVID ‘6-feet’ Social Distancing ‘Sort of Just Appeared,’ Fauci admits

Date:

One of the masterminds and brains behind COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has confessed to lawmakers that guidelines to keep six feet of social distancing, to limit the spread of COVID-19, “sort of just appeared” without any scientific input.

83 year old Fauci revealed to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic that the “six feet apart” recommendation, pioneered by him and some other US public health officials was “likely not based on scientific data,” according to Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), who is also a physician.

To think that schools and businesses nationwide remained closed well into the second year of the pandemic as a result of the social distancing guidelines? This is just bizarre!

“It never struck me that six feet was particularly sensical in the context of mitigation,” Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health who served as President Biden’s COVID response coordinator for 15 months, said.

When asked about a study in Massachusetts schools that revealed just three feet of distance between students resulted in “similar” COVID case rates, Fauci said in the same month the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention was “very carefully” reviewing the data and would “likely” update them.

A top White House adviser to two presidential administrations, as well as Fauci’s transcribed interview before the House COVID panel “revealed systemic failures in our public health system and shed light on serious procedural concerns with our public health authority,” according to Wenstrup.

“After two days of testimony and 14 hours of questioning, many things became evident. During his interview today, Dr. Fauci claimed that the policies and mandates he promoted may unfortunately increase vaccine hesitancy for years to come,” Wenstrup said.

“It is clear that dissenting opinions were often not considered or suppressed completely. Should a future pandemic arise, America’s response must be guided by scientific facts and conclusive data.”

He also said that committee members “remain frustrated with Dr. Fauci’s inability to recollect COVID-19 information that is important for our investigation,” while “others we have spoken to, do recall the facts.”

Rep. Michael Cloud (R-Texas), said on Tuesday night that Fauci had shown an “amazing ability to either forget what happened then or to find ways to shirk any sort of responsibility for the influence that was had,” during the two-day affair.

“They wash their hands of any sort of responsibility, saying, ‘Oh, those decisions were made by school districts.’ But the school districts know, if you don’t follow the guidance that’s coming out of the federal government, you open yourselves up to lawsuits,” Cloud said about Anthony Fauci and other US pandemic response officials.

“He says he’s still not convinced that there was learning loss — that in his view, that’s still really open for discussion. I think [if] you ask any parent, they’ll tell you it was a major hit on their child’s development.” Cloud said.

Republican staff members said the former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director “admitted that America’s vaccine mandates during the COVID-19 pandemic could increase vaccine hesitancy in the future” but that he still went ahead and advised US colleges “to impose vaccine mandates on their students” during the pandemic.

In 2021, Fauci had also said it was “proven that when you make it difficult for people in their lives, they lose their ideological bulls–t, and they get vaccinated.” Bold of him to assume the role of God and make life difficult for people!

The COVID select subcommittee will hear further testimony from Fauci in a public hearing later this year and Republicans will make the full transcript available to the public.
