In this January 25, 2021 article for NBC News, Elisha Fieldstadt reports on an interview given by Dr. Anthony Fauci to the network. In the interview, Dr. Fauci says that the drop in COVID cases in the US is not due to the vaccine, but rather, “due to a natural plateauing of cases following a spike after the holiday season”. Dr. Fauci says that people cannot yet be complacent as the UK variant is circulating in the US now. He adds, “I’m pretty convinced there is a degree of increase in seriousness of the actual infection”.
Editor’s Note: Dr. Fauci is a duplicitous character, but there are gems to be harvested from his recent statement. First, he has acknowledged the 50-year old flu cycle. According to this cycle, the flu season has different patterns based on where an area is located. Studies are showing that SARS-CoV-2 is following the same cycle [In The truth about COVID-19: What data and science tells us, we will see that despite the different degrees of COVID restrictions imposed by countries, COVID-19 still follows the flu cycle].
Second, Dr. Fauci’s acknowledgement in the decline of cases in the US is also proof of herd immunity. Why else would cases be dropping, if no one has immunity against SARS-CoV-2? [To understand the concept of herd immunity, read Herd immunity may be closer than we think and The Great Barrington Declaration: Life must return to normal for the healthy, the vulnerable must be protected and Herd immunity may still be the key to fighting COVID-19]. And if we truly understand what new studies are saying, then we will find that natural immunity will protect us better than vaccines will [see Public Health England: Past COVID-19 infection gives vaccine-like immunity for months and New York Times: Immunity to coronavirus may last for years].
Third, there is no science that supports Dr. Fauci’s belief on the “increase in seriousness of the actual infection”. As of April 2020, research has shown that there were already at least 30 different strains of the SARS-CoV-2, with at least one of those strains believed to be more infectious than the original one [read April study shows the coronavirus has mutated into at least 30 different strains. Until this UK and South African variant, the message from virologists have always been the same: new coronavirus variants are not more deadly than the original [see New York Times: The coronavirus is mutating, and that’s fine]. Where is the science showing that the UK coronavirus is deadlier than the original? Aside from the “realistic probability” being presented by mathematicians, there is no real evidence.Read https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55768627.

If there was a significant increase in virulence of the SARS-CoV-2, then we don’t need tests and genomic sequencing to detect the impact of the UK strain – we will see it immediately in the number of people who are requiring emergency medical assistance.
Whatever his intentions were, we have evidence that Dr. Fauci has repeatedly lied about herd immunity goalposts based on what the public is ready to accept.We have never heard of true science that changes based on public perception. Read about Dr. Fauci’s lies here https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/dr-anthony-fauci-coronavirus-marco-rubio Now that large numbers of front liners are rejecting the experimental vaccines, and an even larger number of regular citizens wary of the COVID shots, Dr. Fauci is once again, conveniently spewing statements of half-truths.
