Has he spoken unwisely?
Dr. Fauci said worse is yet to come Covid-wise: Didn’t lock down soon enough, and when we did, people wouldn’t stay locked down.
There are several immediate problems with Fauci’s arguments, including the fact that COVID cases are showing clear signs of a summer resurgence in the same European countries that allegedly tamed the virus through harsh lockdowns in the spring.
The American news media . . . seized on Fauci’s narrative, and used it to call for renewed lockdowns. The New York Times and The Washington Post both editorialized in favor of a second stricter wave of nationwide lockdowns lasting until October – this despite there being no clear evidence that lockdowns actually work at taming the virus.
