      “There was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then”…Dr Anthony Fauci

      Prominent US public health adviser Dr Anthony Fauci appeared on Sunday to confirm a bombshell New York Times report which said he and other Trump administration officials recommended the implementation of physical distancing to combat the coronavirus in February, but were rebuffed for almost a month.

      Asked on CNN’s State of the Union why the administration did not act when he and other officials advised, Fauci said: “You know … as I have said many times, we look at it from a pure health standpoint. We make a recommendation. Often, the recommendation is taken. Sometimes, it’s not.

      “…It is what it is. We are where we are right now.”

      More than 530,000 cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the US, with almost 21,000 deaths. Officials currently expect a death toll of about 60,000 by August.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      That’s not a surprise. The conservatives never wanted to shut things down to begin with. Even today they are pushing to open everything up. They don’t believe in lockdowns.

      This country is so divided we can’t even agree how to handle the virus.

        Hi jerry,

        Yep – and that is the reason that things will only get worse in America.  The 1% will continue to divide the populace because FEAR is an effective means of control.  We are living through a real-time demonstration proving the point.  Until we can rise above our fears, the 1% have us by the throats.

      “Bombshell report”  Be very afraid!  This is what the 1% wants so that they can rob us blind in the name of a pandemic!  Revised fatality estimates equal to a regular flu.  When it drops even lower, they will claim social distancing did the trick.  By that time, the looting will be almost complete and we will left wondering why we got into such a panic in the first place.  Also, Fauci – a Clinton supporter – said on Feb. 29, there it is safe to go to malls, theatres, etc.  On March 1, the lockdown was started.  So, obviously a total bull shit hit piece.  We all know that Trump is an idiot, but blatant lies about his actions make him more likely to get re-elected.
