Dr. Fauci is once again trying to instill fear in Americans by warning of an upcoming COVID season that will be bad news for everyone and everything, at least that's what he claims.
Fears about a potential spike in COVID cases at the end of the year is nothing new, but it seems like he has a particular knack for finding creative ways of alarming people - just look at last winter when we had our biggest surge since this all started. And now with two months left until thanksgiving...well let’s not get ahead ourselves here shall we?
In my estimation, a lot of our current surge is a combination of false numbers and vaccinations. It's hard to distinguish which is the greatest cause. Certainly, there is a role for people being more willing to go out in public without taking precautions, but this isn't creating this surge that we're currently experiencing.
But anyway, as I was saying, Fauci is warning of a "dark, bad winter". Here's what he said during an interview with The Takeout podcase.
“You know, if we don’t get people vaccinated who need to be vaccinated, and we get that conflating with an influenza season, we could have a dark, bad winter,” the White House medical adviser said during an appearance on The Takeout podcast, although he previewed a potential way out.
Oh, but don't worry everyone. He says we can avoid this. Here's the magic key:
“We could also avoid a dark, bad winter if we get people vaccinated to a very high degree over the next several weeks to a month or two,” Fauci added.
What a freaking joke! If these vaccines were doing what they're supposed to do, we would be seeing the positive effects of them already because there is a large enough percentage of the American population that are already vaccinated. But even if you look at places like Vermont, where vaccinations are the highest, they're experiencing an equivalent surge as well.
