“ advice”. But what if the science is unclear and the experts wrong?
On Jan. 21, the day the first Covid-19 case in the U.S. was confirmed Anthony Fauci said the following on Newsmax TV: “This is not a major threat to the people of the United States, and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.” Shortly afterwards he said in an article published in the New England Journal of Medicinethat Covid-19 would be no more dangerous than common influenza. Two months later he and CDC Director Robert Redfield proclaimed it to be “the greatest public health crisis that has hit this nation in more than 100 years.” The WHO’s latest mortality rate figures (this week) show that only 0.13 percent of those infected will die. That’s 26 times lower than WHO’s originally suggested death rate of 3.4 percent. This 0.13 percent death rate is almost exactly the death rate for the common flu.”
