Fauci: New COVID-19 Outbreaks Could Come if We Reopen Too Fast
Written by Luis Miguel
Dr. Anthony Fauci, public face of the White House’s coronavirus task force, cautioned states against reopening too soon, stating during a Senate testimony Tuesday that doing so before certain “checkpoints” in the federal recovery plan have been met could result in new “outbreaks” down the line.
“As I have said many times publicly, what we have worked out is a guideline framework for how to open America again,” said Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1994.
The health administrator was referring to guidelines the White House has released for states and localities to allow businesses to resume their operations. Among them is the guideline that governments wait to see an uninterrupted decline in coronavirus cases over a two-week period.
“Depending on the dynamics of an outbreak in a particular region, state, city or area, that would really determine the speed and the pace with which one does reenter or reopen,” Fauci said. “If some areas — cities states or what have you — jump over those barriers, checkpoints and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively, and efficiently, my concern is that we will start to see little spikes that might turn into outbreaks.”
Among the actions that Fauci maintained could lead to “suffering and death” are the reopening of schools and the lifting of travel restrictions. “The consequences could be really serious,” he warned when asked what could happen if local governments ignore the established “checkpoints.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) asked him if the virus is under control.
“Right now it depends on what you mean by containment,” Fauci responded. “So when you look at the dynamics of new cases, even though some are coming down, the curve looks flat with some coming down. So I think we’re going in the right direction, but the right direction does not mean we have by any means total control of this outbreak.”
Without the right measures, he added, America could see a “resurgence” of cases.
Fauci was speaking before the Senate Health Committee, along with three other top health officials. His warning came as several states around the country are already rolling back restrictions on businesses. President Trump has generally favored Americans getting back to work as soon as practical.
The NIAID chief said that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is striving to develop vaccines in order to fight the coronavirus. “NIH is focused on developing safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics, and sensitive, specific, and rapid point-of-care diagnostic tests,” he told the Senate in written remarks submitted to the committee. “These efforts will improve our response to the current pandemic and bolster our preparedness for the next, inevitable emerging disease outbreak.”
Fauci explained that the government is looking at different vaccine candidates. However, he affirmed that “there’s no guarantee that a vaccine is going to be effective.”
Bill Gates, the wealthy Microsoft founder, population-control proponent, and vaccine enthusiast, is committed to spending billions in order to create a vaccine for COVID-19.
Gates has said that life won’t return to normal until the world population has been “widely vaccinated.”
“Which activities, like schools, can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be — in a certain sense — more optional? Until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”
Of course, churches tend to involve congregations of more than 50 people, meaning worship houses are unlikely to continue services until the development of a vaccine, according to Gates.
But Bill Gates is the last person anyone would want making a vaccine. He’s the man who regularly cites vaccines as a component of his plan to reduce the world population. Supposed tetanus vaccines pushed by Gates onto the women of Kenya had sterilizing agents in about half the samples, according to Kenyan officials, yet the “tetanus shot” recipients were not told this information. Too, polio vaccines financed by Gates are causing more polio cases than the wild virus in the Third World.
Sadly, arguments such as those made by vaccine enthusiasts such as Gates and Fauci have the ear of lawmakers, including Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Health Committee. Alexander said the government might try to mass-manufacture a vaccine even before it’s been proven to work in order to distribute it more quickly once it receives official approval. “Those vaccines, those treatments, are the ultimate solution,” he said.
Alexander’s assurances, though, are contradicted by the facts and epidemiologists. As was noted by TNA writer Kurt Williamsen, there are three methods to deal with the coronavirus pandemic: find a vaccine (which is said by experts to be a year or more away — and might never be found), find a treatment for the disease (there are treatments that work well — not perfectly — but options such as hydroxychloroquine are being restricted from use by state governments), and let the disease run its course (this is the option the country is following now — at a very slow pace). Since the country is letting the pandemic run its course, efforts to slow the spread of the disease will not lower the total deaths from the disease; they will merely prolong the agony, so, logically, it is better to get the disease over as quickly as possible. The young and healthy — who rarely have bad effects from the disease — should go about life as normal so the country can build herd immunity and quickly be over this pandemic — likely reducing the total COVID deaths for the country.
Alexander talked about the ultimate solution — but for what? Talk of final solutions should raise alarm bells for every patriot opposed to tyranny on the horizon.
