Fauci Avoids Admitting Mistakes that Contributed to COVID-19 Death Toll

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, failed to take any responsibility for the U.S. 500,000 COVID-19 death toll and chose to point fingers at others during a CNN interview.

In response to a direct question asking whether former President Trump’s “denial and lack of facts” contributed to the magnitude of the pandemic hitting the U.S., Fauci responded, saying, “I’m uncomfortable going back and directly criticizing,” but then criticized the former president by adding “but it’s really almost self evident.”

Fauci also blamed states and politics for not uniformly attacking the virus.

It’s unfortunate the discussion was not focused on what Fauci’s role was during the first few months in 2020.

For example, on February 29, 2020, on the Today show, Fauci said “Right now at this moment, there is no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day-by-day basis.” Watch the video here.

Critics weighed in on Fauci on social media.

Fauci had one job to do – to stop a pandemic such as COVID-19 from harming Americans yet his failure to recognize the emerging viral threat in January and February of 2020 added to the severity of the pandemic.

Since the media has little interest in holding Fauci accountable for failing at his basic duty, unfortunately, he will be able to get away with blaming others.
